Hauke Scheer's New 3D Printed Action Figure Can Move Better Than Many Humans

3D printed figurines are fun to make and to have around, but for the most part, they don’t do much – they just kind of stand or sit there stiffly. Unless, of course, they’re made by Hauke Scheer, a designer whose work we have admired in the past. Scheer creates incredible articulated action figures that […]

3D Printing in Art and Architecture: Miles Gertler Explores the Familiar and Unfamiliar

Form and function are two important aspects of any design, whether for art or architecture (or anything in between). When bringing that design into the third dimension, 3D printing helps to ensure that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, as sometimes function can follow form, or vice versa — or the two […]
