By | September 2, 2014

London’s calling, and the i.materialise team is set to attend the 2014 London 3D Printshow starting on September 04, 2014!

Our Community Manager will give two talks, and our outreach team is bringing along a hoard of 3D printed goodies for our booth (Booth D2.) Our two talks are:

More importantly, we are all set to reveal our radiant new material at our booth: Multicolor Gloss.

Official Multicolor Gloss Premiere

This is the first time in the history of i.materialise that this material is available for public purchase. We are delighted to bring this material to the London 3D Printshow, where visitors can touch and interact with Multicolor Gloss in-person.

We worked with Toyze to print and perfect Multicolor Gloss until it met their high standards. Gloss is now being used to create official merchandise from the best-selling Android games “Cut the Rope” and “Pou.”

Multicolor Gloss is an alternative finish for multicolor, and comes out of the printer in full color. Gloss gives 3D prints a smooth, polished look. It accentuates curve detail, makes stress lines less noticeable, and intensifies dark or vibrant colors (i.e. reds look redder, black looks blacker.) Gloss finish is available in both multicolor and black-and-white “monochrome.”

Projects that were printed in our new Multicolor Gloss material will be at the 2014 London 3D Printshow to highlight the latest in 3D printing technology.

Rebecca Roxy Maas, the i.materialise Community Manager, will give two presentations at the 2014 London 3D Printshow

Your Community Manager, Rebecca Roxy Maas, is giving two talks at the 2014 London 3D Printshow!

Talks on Metal, Ceramics, and Free Software

To inspire Makers who come from far-and-wide to this large event, i.materialise will also host two talks:

FRIDAY 5 SEPTEMBER /16.00 / OPEN STAGE

3D printing isn’t just for plastics. This presentation covers how metals and ceramics are 3D printed, and the best design tips for these materials. Metals discussed include titanium, gold, bronze, silver, brass, and steel. Ceramics discussed are glazed and food-safe. Questions will be answered at the end of the panel.

SATURDAY 6 SEPTEMBER /15.00 / OPEN STAGE

The most common question people send to i.materialise is “where can I get a good, free 3D design software?” This family-friendly panel provides an in-depth review of some of the best free software for 3D printed architecture, jewelry design, mechanical design, action figures, and more. Questions will be answered at the end of the panel.

For more information about software, check out Roxy’s Tutorial Thursday series and our free software page.
