“The Pigment of Life” – Mediated Matter Group highlights biodiversity in 3D printed Totems

Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group at MIT have designed a 3D printed installation promoting biodiversity. Made for the ‘Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival’ exhibition at the XXII Triennale di Milano in Milan Totems aims to explore how melanin can be generated on demand. The installation forms part of the grander goal of the project […]

Mediated Matter Group presents 3D printed Aguahoja: “where the grown and the made unite”

Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group at MIT have unveiled a new 3D printing project. In Aguahoja, 3D printed lattices have been “shaped by water” to form large, sculptural chrysalides. Made from cellulose, chitosan and pectin, the pavilions are designed to demonstrate the possibilities of alternative, recyclable construction materials. They also exist as a statement about […]

MIT presents the G3DP2 platform – a first for architectural scale 3D printed glass

In 2017, Milan Design Week hosted a set of 3 meter tall glass columns made using 3D printing. The product of the latest fabrication experiment of the Mediated Matter Group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) these relatively large structures demonstrated the architectural potential of an ancient material combined with cutting edge technology. Now, in the […]

Thanks to MIT and Harvard brains can now be 3D printed by the pixel

A collaboration between MIT’s Mediated Matter Lab and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has yielded an image processing method that makes 3D printing patient-specific medical models a cinch. While accurate, and ready-sliced for 3D printing, manually processing MRI and CT scan data is a laborious process, typically done over the course […]

Multimaterial 3D printing advances by the pixel with new Neri Oxman patent

Neri Oxman and colleagues Dominik Kolb, James Weaver and Christoph Bader at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Mediated Matter group have been granted a patent for multimaterial 3D printing. Published December 28th 2017, the patent discusses a way of translating 3D scanned point-cloud data into an operational command for 3D printers. The patent was granted ahead of a potential sea-change […]

3D Printing Industry Review of the year April 2017

April Fools! One of the most popular articles this month was Formlabs’ prank launch of Form 2 Breakfast Extensions. However, in the days that followed, the 3D printing industry saw many innovation that would continue to be referenced throughout the year. Exclusive insights This month the 2017 Wholers Report, an annual worldwide progress document of […]

Simone Leonelli on the Blurred Boundaries between art, fashion and 3D printing

When art, fashion and 3D printing come together, the results can be simultaneously fascinating and perplexing. At the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA), Simone Leonelli, of the design W230 studio, has travelled along the fine line between the hand-crafted manufacture and automated additive manufacturing to produce the items for the exhibition “Blurred Boundaries“. The […]
