3D printing is moving fast

3D printing technologies -- and the applications -- continue to grow at a quick pace. It didn't take long for artists to get involved.

I would think that 3D printing would give a greater measure of independence to the artist. He/she doesn't have to go to anyone else to do machining or make tooling.

@Charles: Yes indeed but the issue is that as long as they use it wisely it is fine. The more freedom you get the more dangerous thoughts do come into your mind. That is the part which should be controlled.

Saji, I totally agree with you its really great that artists are using 3D technology in their art and copying and  addition of new thoughts are being done in the sculptures and antiques but yes too some extend it is acceptable but artists should not be given too much freedome because copying actual sculpture they can sell them by calling antique .I really like the idea of 4D printing no one has thought that an object created by 3D printing changes its shape as per required along the period of time .

I'm going to assume your "1984"-type comment on freedom and dangerous thoughts is intended as sarcasm.  Just checking.

@Debera Howard:  The art and antiquities market is flooded today with clever fakes which would put a 3D model to shame.  I wouldn't be concerned that 3D priniting represents a quantum leap for art forgery.

@debra, I agree with you, As long as the artists is like a scientist. An artist is called an artist because of his/her inovation and creativity, when the start replicating structures and making them a basis of thier business than they are no longer artists, they might be clever business man.

But as long as creativity is there, I think that 3d printing can be a basis of next generation art, which can start a whole new level of 3d art in the artist world. Like the video of 3d desin grotesque was simply splendid.

"The more freedom you get the more dangerous thoughts do come into your mind. That is the part which should be controlled."

It's funny how different people see things... differently.

I would say... 'The less freedom you HAVE the more your thoughts are considered dangerous.'  

And I'm going to assume that by 'should be controlled' you meant that actions that are truly dangerous should be controlled, not the thoughts. Otherwise... just wow.

To be more on topic...

"Other news that involves natural processes and 3D printing is the coming 4D printing. Inspired by molecular self-assembly, it is a process that is very common in biological structures."

This 4D (or 5D...) printing is likely how AI will independently mass produce its spawn, at least at first. Way easier than the machine shop-auto assembly line like vision in most sci-fi.

The timelines for self-aware AI and really sweet 4D printing could lead to an intersection that changes everything.

And to really make it interesting, the ground work is already laid for bio/mechanical integration and bonding. Just print the parts that will become the final critter... and let them react to the surrounding environment and other outside stimuli.

Cabe, I really enjoy your posts on the use of 3D printing in art. And thanks for the update on so-called 4D printing, which I covered earlier from a materials perspective: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1392&doc_id=260118 At that time, the TED Talk wasn't yet available; glad it now is.

Virtual Reality (VR) headsets are getting ready to explode onto the market and it appears all the heavy tech companies are trying to out-develop one another with better features than their competition. Fledgling start-up Vrvana has joined the fray.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
While every company might have their own solution for PLM, Aras Innovator 10 intends to make PLM easier for all company sizes through its customization. The program is also not resource intensive, which allows it to be appropriated for any use. Some have even linked it to the Raspberry Pi.
solidThinking updated its Inspire program with a multitude of features to expedite the conception and prototype process. The latest version lets users blend design with engineering and manufacturing constraints to produce the cheapest, most efficient design before production.
XYZ, Rabbit, and Disney innovate on the 3d printer in different ways -- from price point to using materials such as yarn.
