The 3D printing workshop sprouts in Ireland. American initiative TechShop will bring its workshop network space replete with expertise in software and creative tools common to the industry to DCU’s Innovation Campus in Glasnevin, Dublin 9. The main attraction of the workshop is the ability to use professional manufacturing equipment for any purpose spawned in the mind of a member paying low-cost fees. 3DPI has covered the workshop phenomena before and hopefully TechShop’s venture proves fruitful and informative for the Irish locale.…

When is printing in three dimensions ‘3D printing?’ Is a 3D print pen 3D printing? Probably not. Is General Electrics ‘3D painting’ a kind of additive manufacturing? I guess so. There is now, probably, a popular culture ‘3D printing’ that includes ideas like the Mink MakeUp Printer. The lines between what is, and is not, 3D printing have become slightly blurred. This article is about something that probably isn’t 3D printing. But, as it’s printing in a way that creates a form in three dimensions, and so darn cool, how could we resist taking a closer look?…

If you’re wealthy or important enough to have a sculpture made of your likeness, Cosmo Wenman is the ideal person for the job. He’s proven himself to be an expert in digitizing and rematerializing famous works of art, often in new ways, using 3D printing. Most recently, the artist was commissioned to craft a life-sized 3D printed portrait as a surprise gift for a client’s colleague.
Because Cosmo couldn’t scan the person he was to recreate, he had to model a mesh based on photographs alone. Rather than design a standard bust, Cosmo opted for something a bit more godlike.…
