‘3D Kunst’ Vishal Haarlem

A couple of nice speedy prototype machining photos I found:

Met werk van Hans van Bentem, Antoinette Briët, Jennifer Hoes, Thomas Huyghe (België), Thomas Laureyssens (België), Stijn van der Linden, Mike Pelletier (Canada), Rinus Roelofs, Theo Schepens, Marc Sokpolie, Eric van Straaten, José van Tubergen, David van der Veldt, Ilse Vermeulen, Hugo Vrijdag, André van de Wijdeven en Rem van der Zee.
Curator Eric van Straaten.

Beelden in deze tentoonstelling zijn geprint door i-materialise i.s.m. ZCorp.

De beelden zijn ontworpen op de computer en vervaardigd door een 3D-printer. Een 3D-printer verschilt van de conventionele gewone printers door het feit dat deze objecten driedimensionaal afdrukt. In het proces plakt of smelt een machine dunne laagjes plastic, gips of metaal op elkaar, waardoor een model in lagen wordt opgebouwd. Het proces heeft de naam rapid prototype technology (RPT) gekregen.
