File this under, "Things We Didn't Know We Needed Until We Saw Them". Not only is this 3D design by Gambody incredibly detailed both inside and out, but the StereoLithography (STL) files to make one yourself are available for download!
Interior design - its sort of a big deal. Every place you go (home, office, library, etc) has to be thought of, visualized, and created; and at some point redesigned. With 3D technology abounding, its about time someone made a really great tool for viewing and editing real spaces in 3D. Welcome, everyone, to Matterport.
Christmas is coming, and Santa can't be without the latest and greatest upgrades to his sleigh. Not only that, wouldn't it make sense that Santa would stay with the times and have it 3D printed? I'm sure you have some great ideas, and GE needs your help!
The minds from MIT Labs have once again come up with something that just blows my mind with a device called inForm. inForm uses Dynamic Physical Affordances and Constraints through Shape and Object Actuation. Ok, let me non-MIT that for you. The device uses a type of 3D scanning system to "see" the users interactions. The system then transmits that data to a display table which can then be seen and used by the observer. If you have ever seen those hand print pin toys, then you will have a good idea on how the display table works, in general.
After lettings ladies create edible chocolate versions of their heads for Valentine’s Day, Shibuya, Tokyo-based FabCafe is letting men create gummy replicas of themselves.
The ‘White Day’ workshop is only for men, as White Day is a Japanese holiday on 14 March (1 month after Valentine’s Day) where males send out gifts to ladies, like on Valentine’s Day—in Japan, on the actual Valentine’s Day, women are the ones who give out chocolates to men.
Monster Energy released this 3D animation of the FIM World Championship Supercross Track that will be used in Anaheim, CA on 1/15. It's gives an excellent look at what these racers have to go through and why Supercross is considered on of the most physically demanding sports on the planet.
3D Box Shot is a virtual packaging design tool. It transforms your artwork into a 3D box in real time using the full power of your PC’s graphics hardware, allowing you to rapidly prototype your box designs.
Forbes got a tour of Shapeway's 3D printing manufacturing facility it New York, which is the largest in the world. The new factory opened this October and has been the buzz of the 3D printing community.
