It's All About the Story: Think2Thing Puts 3D Printing in Context

It's All About the Story: Think2Thing Puts 3D Printing in Context

Toronto-based Think2Thing is no longer a stranger to 3D printing technology, but the story had to start somewhere. For the founding team, this story’s “once upon a time” was October 2014, where in a far-off kingdom (the United Kingdom, that is), a 3D printing conference in London lit a new flame of interest. The quest to […]

3D Printing for Gamers -- A Few Questions For: U-Dimensions

3D Printing for Gamers -- A Few Questions For: U-Dimensions

Gamers and 3D printing. 3D printing and gamers. It’s a tale as old as time, in that very twenty-first century way. We’ve seen gaming and 3D printing come together in a variety of ways, from the creation of board game and tabletop RPG pieces to a myriad of video game-focused projects, including a video game-inspired […]

The Digital Hand: Using Kinect to Create 3D Printed Furniture and Objects

The Digital Hand: Using Kinect to Create 3D Printed Furniture and Objects

Parametric is a favorite word among the digital design community. In fact, one of my colleagues at the university and a good friend of ours used it so often that six years ago, my two-year-old daughter would walk around calling everything parametric. It’s a fancy way of saying ‘something that exists in relation to a […]

The Turbulence & Technique of Starry Night Translates to 3D Print & Wins First Place at AMUG

If we played a word association game regarding Vincent van Gogh, it would be fairly predictable. Van Gogh? Ear. Gone by razor. Best artwork? Starry Night. Turbulence accompanied by nightmarish light, yielding splendid—yet scary—dramatic color. Obviously, from the hand of such an incredibly prolific painter, the world remembers Starry Night in particular with good reason, […]

Ryerson University Professors Teach Students About Water by 3D Printing It

Water is ephemeral. You can’t grasp it in your hands; even its frozen form melts away before long if it’s touched. There’s a proverb about not being able to step into the same river more than once, which is true: water is constantly moving, changing, merging into new forms. That’s why water pollution can be […]

It's a 3D Printing Win-Win: Voovo to Launch Crowdsourcing Platform for Consumers and Makers

Creativity is all about connections. One comes up with a concept and connects it to a design or some sort of expression they want to make known, and most often it requires empowering tools to do so. Throughout the ages, artists, makers, engineers, and creators across a wide gamut have had to rely on the tools […]
