Rhinoceros, or short Rhino, is a powerful and versatile modeling software for creating 3D designs. When you’re looking to 3D print your Rhino model, some points are very important to keep in mind: it needs to be watertight, exported correctly, and have the right wall thicknesses. While this might sound complicated, Kyle Houchens, an expert at preparing a Rhino 3D model for 3D printing, will show you how it’s done. In this step-by-step video tutorial, he will show you what kind of models are perfect for 3D printing and how you can identify and fix common mistakes.
Thinking about designing and 3D printing your own jewelry? Haven’t found a software that suits your needs entirely? Then this easy introduction to RhinoGold might just be what you are looking for. In this beginner-friendly tutorial, we will show you how you can create and 3D print three types of rings in a few easy steps: basic rings, rings with textures, and more sophisticated rings with overlapping elements.
First off my apologies for announcing this so late.
3rd place goes to My Family Lamp by Pancho. Congratulations you win $200 in 3D printing! The My Family LampÂ isÂ “a lamp based in the number of members of your family. How many births are in your family? You can add members, so the bird light will be brigther.
The meaning is, To keep the family together and bring them light.”
The second place winner is twigg by npa. Congratulations you win $300 in 3D printing! Twigg is a vase for the everyday household bridging the gap betweeen esthetics and function. “Its simple form has been inspired by natural tree morphologies, translated as a mathematical theory called L-systems. Being parametric, Twigg can be reproduced to give individual variations of the same form. Twigg was created using Rhino, grasshopper and Rabbit 2.0.”
The winner is BevLamp by Rendy. Congratulations you win $500 in 3D printing and a i.materialise Appear lamp. “BevLamp is a Dimmer-LED Lamp. Ground concept
Together with McNeel we would like to stimulate Rhino artists & designers worldwide to get the most out 3D printing. We both want to encourage stimulating, innovative and creative 3D printed products that are “Future Forms Today.”. That’s why we’re jointly announcing the Rhino & i.materialise 3D Printing Design Challenge and making over $1000 in prizes available to you.
What can you win?
- First place wins $500 in 3D printing & an i.materialise Appear lamp.
- Second place wins $300 in 3D printing.
- Third place wins $200 in 3D printing.
How will we judge the contest?
McNeel Europe & i.materialise team will jointly judge the contest. We will be looking at people who show the power of Rhino & 3D printing in their designs. We will be looking at designers and artists that can make “Future Forms Today.” We will consider the originality and presentation of the design. We will also take into account if you use maximize the power of 3D printing in your product. So is your pro
Not all 3D modeling software is available for every operating system. That’s why we compiled a list of the most popular 3D design programs for Mac users. Read on to discover the top 20!
Finding the right 3D modeling software for 3D printing is tough. That’s why we want to give you a complete overview about the best and most popular free 3D modeling software in this blog post.
Francesco de Comité is an Associate Professor in Computer Science at the University of Lille (France). He has a degree in Maths and a PhD in Computer Science, and his research focuses on the representation of mathematical concepts in real life with renders, 3D prints or ‘physical objects’.
He started working in this field nearly 10 years ago, first by making 2D renders of math objects. But after these first attempts, he realised the need to go further with his research.
You want to 3D print something but you don’t know where to start. You have a great idea but you don’t know how to use 3D design software. Maybe you’ve even created a great sketch – but you don’t know how to turn your 2D idea into 3D. You are not alone!
One of the main advantages of 3D printing is the benefits that it offers for mass customization.
Thanks to 3D printing technologies, the possibility of personalizing objects to make them unique has become much easier and that’s exactly what the Space Time Coordinates project is about.
So how does 3D printing really work? Actually, there is no single, easy answer to this, since ‘3D printing’ includes many different technologies. While some printers work with filament, others use powder, and yet others work with liquid. To bring some structure into this, we put together a video overview about the most important 3D printing technologies.
