Sculpteo and ZBrush Partner for One-Click 3D Printing

There are a lot of different 3D modeling programs out there, each offering something a little different to appeal to different tastes. One of the most popular is ZBrush, which is well-loved because it takes a different approach to 3D modeling. Rather than using CAD, ZBrush appeals more to traditional artists by letting users “sculpt” […]

Dutch Designer Uses 3D Printing to Create Large-Scale Deer Artwork

The art of sculpture requires complexity and sophistication to supplement the smallest details of every aspect of the figure. Particularly, 3D sculptures of animals such as deer demand an experienced sense of visualization and particularization to ensure the expression of the animal is conveyed to the audience.

I love 3D printed fashion. Not only has the medium allowed for incredible geometries and textures that would be impossible to create by other means, but it also gives designers more freedom to incorporate smart materials, kinetic elements and other high technology directly into clothing and jewelry. I love seeing the creativity of emerging designers in the […]
