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.
3D design can be somewhat intimidating if you have never used 3D design software before. At i.materialise, we love getting newcomers to 3D printing started in this fascinating world. That’s why today we’re bringing you a 3D design tutorial for beginners.
Get started with 3D design with this MagicaVoxel tutorial.
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!
A 3D model is the virtual input that a 3D printer needs to print an object. In this blog post, we will explain what a 3D model is and how you can get your very own 3D file by downloading it, 3D scanning an object, hiring a 3D designer, or designing it with 3D modeling software.
The new Multicolor+ has stolen our hearts from the moment it was launched a few weeks ago.
Being able to 3D print your models in full color is so exciting that we can’t wait to explain all the possibilities of this material.
Light and flexible are the main characteristics that Cristian Marzoli, an Italian architect and designer, uses to describe this 3D printing material. We would add strong and durable!
The magic of rubber-like is this mixture of softness and durability. With a sandy granular look, this is the 3D printing material of choice to 3D print squeezable models, and it’s also a great option for fashion and jewelry.
Have you already discovered Multicolor +, our new 3D printing material in full color?
Maybe you are you thinking about 3D printing your next design with Multicolor+ but you don’t know what to expect. In this article we will explain how the technology behind Multicolor+ actually works, what colors can you expect and how to model your 3D design to get the perfect full-color 3D print.
Here’s all you need to know about 3D printing in Multicolor+!
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…)
One of the main goals of 3D printing is simply to make our lives easier: with a good 3D design and the endless possibilities of the technology, it’s easy to find a solution for your needs. For photographers, it might be the need to take better pictures. By adding just a few small details, you can make taking photos and recording a lot easier.
