Bringing Art and 3D Printing Together

Are you as fascinated with the evolution of 3D printing as I am?  Think back a couple years when the technology was just starting to get “big”.  The exciting things I was reading about were 3D printed shoes.  Now it seems like ANYTHING can be 3D printed.

The collaboration was a unique one to say the least.  It allowed 3D Systems to document and define the steps for an artist who wants to use 3D printing to expand their creative possibilities.  The outcome was less than ordinary.
