FULL PRINT3D

Earlier this week The New York Times published a nice article called ‘3-D Printing Spurs a Manufacturing Revolution’. Although the article is getting a lot of attention, it only shows you a glimpse of what 3D printing can actually do. If you feel like discovering a whole lot more, you should visit the FABRICATION LABORATORY in Barcelona and experience all the 3D digital manufacturing technologies up close.

Fabrication Laboratory. New scenarios for 3D design and production is a series of events that are held at the Disseny Hub Barcelona (www.dhub-bcn.cat) from 15 June 2010 to 29 May 2011. With FABRICATION LABORATORY the DHUB presents an overview of the new 3D digital manufacturing technologies, a phenomenon that’s constantly evolving and leading to radical changes in design and production processes worldwide. The idea of the DHUB is to show the reflection on how these machines and software allow a new kind of fabrication that involves a different way of designing and programming.

Meet your new community manager

Dear i.materialisers,

I would like to thank Alex for his hard work in initiating the i.materialise community and wish him well in the new studies he will be pursuing. I’m very proud and happy to take the baton from his hands and become your new Community Manager.

As your Community Manager, I hope to make your lives easier by helping you take your ideas and turn them into products. The next few months I will focus on making i.materialise an easier and more lively place to get things made. I will also be in charge of getting the word out and telling everyone about the great designs and products you make. At the same time I want to listen. I will call as many of you as I can to try to understand what it is that you need for us to be.

I thrive on feedback, and hope to get lots of it from you. If you have any questions, complaints or ideas please email me. I want you to consider me your employee. I work for you, our community, and I am tasked with making you as happy as possible.

Show your true colours : reduced prices during summer

We noticed that 3D printed multicolored models are most appealing to you,
but that users regularly have to compromise between price and color.

This is a pity, certainly now, when more and more 3D software packages are making it the designer easy to add colors or textures to the models, giving it the expression it deserves.

i.materialise is already offering a sharp price for specific architectural and bookend products in multicolor.

Now we are happy to announce that from today till the 30th September we will extend this sharp pricing for multicolor material to all your designs.

Below you find an example of the difference in pricing between the old and new price for this lovely model.

Have fun and color your summer !

THE ROBOTS ARE BACK

i.materialise recently sponsored the price for the Doga CG robot contest in Japan, by 3D printing the winning design.

Hiro, our Japanese colleague, had the chance to meet the winner, Yuunagi – to give his price and to ask him some questions. You can read his answers below, along with some pictures of his 3d printed robot character.

Yuunagi is a 3d model hobbyist active in Computer graphics since 6 years. He creates amazing renders of robot characters.

Hi Yuunagi, Did you enjoy the contest and the award?


“It was a great challenge, open for everyone to participate, also for beginners. Those challenges are a great chance to sharpen your 3D modeling skills. I will participate in the next one for sure.”


What do you think on your 3D printing model?


“I was surprised and excited to win the challenge. It’s amazing to see how my design came alive as a real model. It’s fun to touch it. I heard 3d printing is used a lot in the industry, but it
