3d Printing

mån 03 december 2012


We are planning to dedicate the coming months to 3d-printing.

Imagine a world were we can print anything. Still in early development the possibilities of 3d-printing are opening up new imaginations, lowering production and prototyping costs. Like the printing press revolutionized literacy and made way for a new world, this 3rd Industrial Revolution will profoundly change the way we function socially, economically, and democratically by opening up for a new kind of small scale distributed production. Laws on patents and intellectual property, piracy, and trade becomes more and more ambiguous and outdated.

We will use 3d-printers like RepRap and a Makerbot to explore 3d-printing, we will use Blender and Mudbox or similar programs to make 3d-models. Can we make mashups and hybrids and generatively create objects? What kind of awsome projects will happen?; We will discuss these issues in a text seminar. We will look att 3d-scanning techniques like using Kinect for 3d-scanning and much more?
