Carl Bass, CEO of Autodesk, offers An Insider’s View of the Myths and Truths of the 3-D Printing ‘Phenomenon’. In the article he notes “…another important direction in the 3-D printing landscape involves the shift to architectural-scale 3-D printing. Examples include the work of Ron Rael at U.C. Berkeley, who has been working with new, … Read More
“A small Oakland, California-based company called Emerging Objects may hold the holy grail of 3D print design. The four-person design team, a subsidiary of Rael San Fratello Architects, has figured out a way to incorporate the use of different materials in the printing process – offering a solution to the limits of 3D printing…The company’s … Read More
“The fast-growing field of 3D printing has been gaining a lot of attention. But one intriguing project coming out of the University of California Berkeley aims to use natural resources like salt and wood to reduce 3D printing costs.” LiveScience.com reports on Emerging Objects.
“…one innovation we haven’t previously seen in 3D printing? Printer filament made from of planet-friendly materials rather than Earth-damaging plastics. That’s changing however, with design firm Emerging Objects‘ recycled and recyclable 3D printing materials. Using materials like salt, concrete, wood and paper, they are putting the green in 3D printing…”, writes Inhabit.com in their article, … Read More
Treehugger.com calls Emerging Objects materials, “The green 3D printing materials we’ve been waiting for”.
“One of the things holding 3D printing back is the material used to print objects. A San Francisco-based company, Emerging Objects, has created new printing materials that aren’t just plastic, but composed of wood, concrete, and even salt.” ExtremeTech.com reports on Emerging Objects.
“Oakland-based Emerging Objects isn’t your normal design firm. Rather than designing homes, interiors, furniture or products from common materials, the four-person group is trying to create materials for tomorrow’s 3D printed objects.”, writes Engineering.com
“There’s no limit to the objects we can 3D print these days, but the materials themselves haven’t evolved as quickly—we’re still stuck in a world of plastic, steel, and ceramic. That’s all about to change, thanks to the work of a small Oakland fabrication studio called Emerging Objects.” writes Gizmodo.com in their recent article, Wood, … Read More
