World's First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

World's First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

When we talk about 3D printed bridges, they’re usually made out of heavy construction materials, like concrete or steel. But recently, Tongji University’s College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) unveiled the first robotic 3D printed bridges, which were made using modified plastic. The two black footbridges, which span 4 meters and 11 meters, graced the […]

German Artists Deliberately Create, Explore Glitches & Imperfections Displayed Through 3D Printing

German Artists Deliberately Create, Explore Glitches & Imperfections Displayed Through 3D Printing

As human creations, the machines we make and systems we put in place are of course imperfect. Media artists Jan Sengstake and Vincent Brinkmann, both students at the University of Arts in Bremen, Germany, explored this subject as an extension of their study in the relationships between man and machine, which we reported on previously in connection […]
