The company SolideXpress, which specializes in prototyping, conceived a project to create sculptures of famous personalities on the basis of their 3D models. They decided to begin with David Shilling, perhaps the most well-known hat maker in the world. His plastic figurine, created with the scanner Artec MH and a 3D printer, would be an excellent gift for any style-conscious man or woman who is crazy about unusual hats.
As part of Design's days, which recently took place in Paris, a group of designers from SISMO, together with Artec’s authorized reseller in France 3D AVENIR, staged a real show. The goal of the presentation was to demonstrate the possibilities of new technologies and their role in contemporary design. And they chose a very clever way of doing this – they played to the human weakness of narcissism.
Metallurgy. Litmash 2012, the industrial international exhibition devoted to metallurgy, has just ended at Moscow’s Expocenter. And although the company Artec did not officially take part, its 3D scanners shone at several display stands.
