Hacking into other's living room – 3D-printers in the cloud

Nowadays more and more people connect their 3D-printers to the internet, and many open-source and commercial projects tried to make 3D-printers more cloud friendly. But has anyone thought about network security? How easy would it be for someone to find a hole in those cloud-based solutions and connect to those boxes (e.g. Raspberry Pi running OctoPrint) and control your printers?

3D-printers in the cloud & network security challenge

Behind the Scenes of Victoria’s Secret 3DP Snow Angel

December is just around the corner, and we’re all wishing for a white christmas – well, at least everyone living in a fairly cold climate. Here at 3DPI, we can’t really promise you snow, but to celebrate the 1st of December, let’s take a look at the Snow Angel photoshoot by Victoria’s Secret. This 3D Printing co-project project combined Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie with Swarovski’s crystals into quite a breathtaking snowflake ‘outfit’ printed by Shapeways.…

Stratasys ‘Think It – Print It’ Education Series

There is no denying that education will play a key role in getting the next generation to adopt 3D printing technology to their lives. Already we are seeing competition in the education front (check Rachel’s article for details) with Stratasys’ MakerBot working with America Makes and 3D Systems partnering with Teach Design for a UK-based education initiative. In the same vein, Stratasys has introduced 3D Printing 101 – ‘Think it, Print it’ video series to give both educators and students ideas on how to use 3D Printing for scientific and artistic projects.…

InMoov 3D Printed Animatronic Robot Video Update

InMoov is a free, fully functional, 3D-printed robot by Gaël Langevin. The project is open source, so you can easily download most of the parts from the InMoov website. 3DPI’s Mike initially covered the story about the robot on January, with a second look last May as the robot was motoring up. For this sunday we’re sharing you a new clip showing a 3D Printed InMoov robot hand by Eric William.…

Third nominee for the i.materialise Designer of the Year Award: Isaie Bloch

The third nominee of the i.materialise Designer of the Year Award is Isaie Bloch and the founder of Eragatory, the name of his atelier with a focus on Design for 3D printing and creative fabrication.Isaie Bloch made some really great designs in different materials such as brass, silver and multicolor. He already worked together with big names in the industry and just three weeks ago he won the ‘Designer of the Year’ Award at the 3D Printshow.

Satire, 3D printed in multicolor.


“After receiving my first master degree in experimental architecture (with distinction), in 2008, at Sint-Lucas Architectuur, Ghent, Belgium,I joined the postgraduate program Excessive in 2010 lead by Hernan Diaz Alonso in Austria, where I gained my second master degree (again with with distinction).”

Diamonds, 3D printed in silver. With this designs Isaie won our Valentine Challenge.

“My research and design ambitions focus on the correlation between craftsmanship and 3D printing within several creative domains including Architecture, Fashion and Plastic arts. Using digital tools as a new set of brushes within the plastic arts, my designs (reaching from sculptures to utensils with a ornamental character) always focus on the geometrical capacities of what 3D printing has to offer as a production technique. Not because it is a new medium but because it offers me a very specific set of geometry to work with. According to that, none of my work can be produced trough other means then 3D printing.”

Cutlery set, 3D printed in gold plated brass.

“From 2008 on I have been working with Nick Ervinck in the field of hyperrealism exposing in Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, China, Dubai and the USA, creating a huge range of art-pieces reaching from small prints, to 3D printed sculptures and huge hand manufactured installations. Currently I’m working under my own label ‘Eragatory’, he has been collaborating together with a wide range of customers and several Artists, like Iris van Herpen in the design and production of 3D printed sculptures and products.”
