NASA's Massive James Webb Space Telescope Inspires Out-of-This-World 3D Printed Art

NASA's Massive James Webb Space Telescope Inspires Out-of-This-World 3D Printed Art

Art is always inspired by something – a feeling, an event, a muse. So what can artists come up with when their given muse is a large, technologically advanced telescope? NASA, which has long acknowledged how space exploration can inspire works of art, selected 25 multimedia artists to view the large, infrared James Webb Space Telescope […]

Famous Portraits Reimagined in 3D Print: Daniel Warnecke Updates the Classics

Famous Portraits Reimagined in 3D Print: Daniel Warnecke Updates the Classics

Photographer Daniel Warnecke‘s work explores portraiture’s essence, moving beyond the realistic conveyance of an exterior topography to questions of how a captured likeness continues to evolve despite traditional conceptualizations of it as a frozen moment in time. His latest project has involved mining material from the rich history of portraits by masters such as Gainsborough and Arbus. […]

You've Got the Whole Universe...3D Printed in a Marble

You've Got the Whole Universe...3D Printed in a Marble

Sometimes it becomes necessary to update children’s songs for the current times. A more contemporary version of the children’s classic “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” might be something more like “He’s Got the Whole Universe 3D Printed in a Marble,” and while it doesn’t roll quite as easily off the tongue, it is […]

Eye Catching Oil Paintings Created with 3D Printed Elements

Eye Catching Oil Paintings Created with 3D Printed Elements

As painting is a largely visual medium, the key to promoting your work lies in being able to get people to look at it. And this has to be more than just a passing glance. In an effort to catch and hold that attention, Italian artist Guido Salimbeni has been combining 3D printed elements with […]

Exo-Voice & Exo-Shoe: Onyx Ashanti Creates Incredibly High Tech 3D Printed 'Footware' & More

  The creative process is, above all, a process. Good art, just like any creation worth having, is worth waiting for. Onyx Ashanti, a native of Mississippi, is all about the iterative process in his creative works, and has been developing “beatjazz” for several years, even doing a TED talk on the topic in 2011–and he […]

3D Printing Your Heart of Gold via a CT Scan

It’s probably not quite what Neil Young had in mind, but Canadian artist Brendon McNaughton has a heart of gold. Or at least, after seeing the possibilities for 3D printing available at Objex Unlimited 3D Printing Studio, he wants to print one. McNaughton’s idea is that clients would commission him to create an artistic heart […]

Drawing in 3D Using Fused Deposition Modeling with Artist David Lobser

Artist and digital philosopher David Lobser wanted to find out what would happen if 3D printing were used as a tool for drawing directly in three dimensions, rather than for printing a three dimensional version of a digital model. Rather than going down the typical path toward the use of 3D printing as a way […]

Artist 3D Prints New Glass City-Shaped Shells for Hermit Crabs to Live In

Hermit crabs are squatters by nature, they salvage empty shells into which they can retract their soft, spiral shaped abdomens. Hermit crabs are popular pets and are often selected by the attractiveness of the particular shell they are occupying when purchased. As they can live quite long lives (up to 32 years in some cases!) […]

Marxism and Chocolate: Ideas in 3D Printing

We live in a time period where we are more dependent, than ever before on outside sources for nearly everything. People have begun to look at activities that would have been performed easily 100 years ago as near miracles of creation. The fact that I can crochet a blanket or that my husband can build […]
