Girl with an Oar: Soviet-Era Statue Restored with 3D Printing and Calligraphy

Girl with an Oar: Soviet-Era Statue Restored with 3D Printing and Calligraphy

In 1934, artist Ivan Shadr created a sculpture of a nude girl proudly posing with an oar. The aptly named Girl with an Oar was deemed “too sexy for Stalin” although the artist himself was reportedly a favorite of the Soviet dictator. The eight-foot-tall statue was originally installed in Russia’s Gorky Park, surrounded by fountains […]

3D Printing with Magnets in Microgravity

3D Printing with Magnets in Microgravity

While methods of 3D bioprinting vary, most of them have one thing in common – they print cells layer by layer into a desired shape, which is then transferred to an incubator where it further grows and develops. Alternative methods exist, however, that involve the manipulation of the cell material by magnetic fields. The cells […]
