Touring Your (Unbuilt) Dream Home: 3D Visualization in Architecture and Interior Design

Touring Your (Unbuilt) Dream Home: 3D Visualization in Architecture and Interior Design

This article originally appeared on Shapeways Magazine. Architects, developers, brokers, and interior designers often have to help their clients and prospective buyers envision a space that doesn’t exist yet. The traditional way to do this involved drawings made on drafting tables and hand-crafted models. However, technology has dramatically changed customer expectations, and over the past two decades glossy, photorealistic […]

Students Use 3D Printing Technology to Interact with Ancient Greek Artifacts at Victoria University of Wellington's Classics Museum

Students Use 3D Printing Technology to Interact with Ancient Greek Artifacts at Victoria University of Wellington's Classics Museum

One of the most important rules that children have drilled into their heads before museum field trips is to not touch the exhibits. But in recent years, 3D scanning and 3D printing technology has helped abolish this rule, and now all sorts of important artifacts and exhibits, from dinosaur fossils and mummies to famous paintings […]

Take Quality 3D Scans with Your iPhone Using the New Qlone App

3D scanning is still intimidating to many people, and that’s understandable. No matter how simple the scanner is to use, there’s a lot that goes into creating a 3D model from a scan. Mesh, point clouds, merging – there are a lot of unfamiliar terms when you first start learning about 3D scanning, and going […]

Jewelry Inspired by Art is the Focus of New 3D Design Challenge by Shapeways and the National Gallery of Denmark

I don’t usually wear earrings unless I’m attending a formal event, and I have only a few necklaces that are in regular rotation, but I love wearing unique rings. One of my favorites has a big owl on it, with a black jeweled head that’s complete with two sharp horns and a cute little beak. […]

The Where and the Who in 3D Printing

The Where and the Who in 3D Printing

A lot of progress has been made in 3D printing over the last five years. But much of that has been focused on the “what.” What printing technology? What materials? Beyond The “What” Many in 3D printing are so focused on the features, advantages and benefits of their machine, that they forget the “why” – […]

Guardian at Your Gate: 3D Printed Dragon Lets Visitors Ring Your Doorbell in Style

I like more personalized household items. I know it’s probably cheaper to get a standard bottle opener that’s not in the shape of the Enterprise NCC 1701-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation, or more utilitarian welcome mats that just say “Welcome,” instead of “Wipe Your Paws” and “Live Laugh Love,” but I like the idea […]
