3D printing film I made for Bell House, to demonstrate the various ways in which artists and designers are using 3D printing in their work. There are some remarkable creations afoot, many of which are already commonplace in the worlds of engineering, fashion and design. The artists featured here are pushing the limits of what can be done with this largely mysterious medium, and I hope through watching, you'll gain a clearer understanding of how this can be applied to household objects and largescale production into our future.
I was particularly concerned that 3D printing is made of PLASTIC! But it turns out that there are many different sorts of plastic, even some made from plants, as well as other materials that can be used for printing. Watch to find out more and let me know your thoughts.
