To 3D print you need a printable digital model. The issue regarding the wherewithall to access 3D print technology is standard 3D design programmes as these are developed primarily for industrial designers requiring complex functionality to design for mass manufacturing processes. Applied artists, like myself, can’t afford the steep learning curves required to master highly complex prescriptive programmes. Not having the wherewithal to create sound 3D digital models to 3D print means that we can’t easily access this amazing technology. Looking for a way into 3D print technologies Colleagues and I researched, designed and created a remarkable 3D modelling tool for applied artists to workRead More →
