Working in such a dynamic sector like 3D printing, it’s normal that the members of the Materialise team are always exploring the creative side of 3D printing and discovering all its possibilities.
This story is a good example of how we use every excuse to get creative with 3D printing.
Are we obsessed with 3D printing? Maybe, but it’s just so much fun!
3D printing is a very broad concept that includes many different technologies, materials and even 3D design software. This also means there is a world of possibilities for creative artists willing to experiment like Koenraad Van Daele.
As a longtime friend of i.materialise, this Belgian artist is a good example of a curious mind experimenting with diverse 3D printing materials and sizes.
Welcome to the 3D-printed world of Koen Van Daele! (more…)
Charles-Eric Gogny is a professional French sculptor who has embraced 3D printing and 3D design from a very early stage. He is fascinated by organic forms and tries to show imaginary representations of the universe and existence through sculpture: everything is movement, metamorphoses, and microcosms meeting macrocosms. This results in chimeric creatures; a mix of human, animal and vegetable.
Charles-Eric explained to us how he designs for 3D printing in bronze and polyamide, and how this new way of working has allowed him to continue sculpting even after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
If you are a designer, jeweler or creative mind starting your own company, you’ll probably have heard about 3D printing. You might even have thought about introducing it to your company or creative project but you still don’t know where to start or how it can actually improve your business.
If that is the case, we have some good news for you: it’s easier than you think and well worth your while! (more…)
The Swiss designer duo Drzach and Suchy have left us stunned once again. This isn’t the first time they’ve amazed us with their magical 3D printed shadow art. And now, they even took it to the next level: 3D printed shadow clouds. Stay tuned because it is absolutely magical.
Paco Raphael crosses the line between art and design and aligns artwork with industrial production. More than focusing only on his “canvas on the wall” the Dutch designer pushes art into the three-dimensional space with his outstanding collection of large-scale 3D printed deer.
Sea monsters exist – at least in 3D-printed form. Meet Amy Doran, the designer of a stunning sea creature that was made with a mix of clay sculpting, 3D scanning, 3D modeling and printing with i.materialise’s biggest resin printers.
Guido Salimbeni is an Italian artist based in Florence. But he is not just any painter. Guido’s skills with the brush are just as good as his skills with modern 3D modeling software, which is why Guido combines traditional oil painting with 3D printing. In this way, the Italian artist has managed to find a truly unique style of art.
We’re no strangers to ceramic 3D prints, but these eight 3D prints left us stunned once again. New York-based designer Christo Logan just launched his ‘two.parts’ series of pendant lights built with our 3D printed ceramics and managed to incorporate some really intriguing elements into his designs.
Once again Swiss designer duo Drzach & Suchy have surprised us with a 3D printed art piece like no other. After the stunning 3D printed shadow art that they printed with us back in May, we were really excited about their next project: a 3D printed haiku that is only visible in water. Sounds confusing?
