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.
GoPro cameras are perfect for shooting video footage – even while doing extreme action sports. A GoPro is not meant to be handheld but to be mounted on surfboards, drones, skateboards, helmets, bikes, or even a rocket!
3D printing is the best way to get affordable, lightweight, yet absolutely useful items to enhance the stabilization, accuracy, and protection of your camera. Read on to find out more about our 8 coolest and best 3D printed GoPro accessories and mounts! Make your GoPro fly, dive, and race!
Colorful, eclectic, detailed and eye-catching are some of the adjectives we can use to describe Denise J. Reytan’s 3D-printed creations. Working and living in such an alternative city like Berlin, we didn’t expect any less from today’s featured artist.
If you live on this planet, you might have already watched or at least heard about the latest Marvel movie: Black Panther.
This blockbuster has been acclaimed by the public and movie critics for many reasons, including the impressive costumes worn by the characters. (more…)
For many people, 3D printing just means prototypes and industrial designs, but at i.materialise we’re well aware that this is not true! For us, 3D printing is synonymous with creativity, art, design and even fashion.
3D printing can be used for the design of a beautiful kettle, to create incredible pieces of jewelry, or such as in this case, to bring a pair of dream shoes to life!
3D printing allows us to dream. Not just because the freedom of design it enables is limitless, but because it’s a good way to test out our ideas and designs in the real world. This is especially useful for product designers like Elia Furgiele.
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!
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.
Using 3D Printing to print architectural models is nothing new, but these models of the Šibenik Cathedral of St. James 3D-printed in transparent resin are breathtaking!
A replica of this UNESCO World Heritage Site in Croatia was created for an exhibition and 3D-printed in transparent resin and the results are stunningly detailed.
Read on to know more about this creation and the fascinating measurement process for the 3D design, drones included!
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…)
