Last week, we have closed our World of Houses challenge for SketchUp users.
First of all, congratulations to all participants – the overall quality of your designs was very high and you made great use of our plugin.
Our jury members (Aidan Chopra, Mike Lucey and Fried Vancraen) found it very hard to make a selection :,,).
I am happy to announce our new challenge for everyone who enjoys design. We have already conducted a similar challenge with Blender community and are now thrilled to announce a bookend challenge hosted on our website. In this challenge we are asking you to design your own bookend. (more…)
How the EyjafjallajokÃ¼ll eruption resulted in a great video on the future of 3D modeling & 3D printing.Â
We have just materialized the bookends from our most recent Blender Bookend challenge. Here are the pictures:
Do you know ‘The Tripods’? Well, Martin – one of our German customers – surely does. As a long time fan of the BBC science fiction series, broadcasted in the 1980s, he has just printed his childhood dream through i.materialise. That dream was owning a model of a Tripod.(more…)
From February 17 until May 24, 2010, the Centre Pompidou in Paris will present a retrospective of the work of Patrick Jouin. The retrospective includes the Solid Collection and the One_Shot.MGX collapsable stool, produced via revolutionary .MGX 3D printing techniques.
In addition, Patrick Jouin”s latest creation with .MGX will be unveiled. Inspired by both the One_Shot.MGX stool and flower blossoms found in nature, his new lamp features a shade which collapses and expands to release or contain light. As with the One_Shot.MGX, the shade is printed as a single piece, including hinges that in one simple movement, transform the shade from a bud to a blossom.
I am pleased to announce that we are launching a design challenge on Blenderartists.

The 3 winners, who will be selected by our jury, will get a unique bookend set, based on their design.
You are able submit your design until Monday, February 22nd (GMT +1).
Good luck, we hope to see your design 3Dprinted!
We have received several requests to extend the deadline for the challenge and decided to give 4 extra days for everyone to design and make their entries.
