Rhino 3D printing Contest winners announced

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 Lamp is “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

Turning Mathematics into Colorful 3D-Printed Art

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.
