3D Printing With Rhino: Preparing Your Rhinoceros 3D Model for 3D Printing

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.

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

Turning a Stick into a 3D Printed Bronze Stylus

Turning a Stick into a 3D Printed Bronze Stylus

Jeremy Burnich discovered metalpoint sketching by accident – and soon after created a bronze stylus in the shape of a stick by using 3D printing. The design was modeled in Rhino and ZBrush and manufactured in 3D printed bronze by i.materialise.

Jeremy was in his backyard with his dog when he saw a small stick on the ground, held it in his hand like a pen, and knew in that moment what he wanted to create. Having created a silver stylus before, he wanted something inspired by nature for his second version and decided to turn a twig into a so-called inkless pen for sketching on stone paper.

Jeremy Burnich became interested in metalpoint sketching and soon created a 3D-printed bronze stylus.

The idea to create these metal writing instruments came by accident, when Jeremy happened to brush his silver ring against a page in his stone paper notebook. Intrigued by the mark left behind, he investigated further and discovered that copper, bronze and aluminum foil had the same behavior.
