Besides the variety of technologies that could be seen a the EuroMold 2014 there was another aspect at the fair regarding 3D printing art. Being big enough to write a separate article about 3D printing technologies there was also enough material to bee seen at the EuroMold worth dedicating an own article to the 3D printed art that was exhibited at the fair.
Printed on Stratasys Objet printers in full color there where some really cool pieces of art one could gaze at. The colorful corsets reminding of human organs for example in two variations.
Or 3D printing art sculptures that looked like made from colored glass.
What amazed me the most is the bowl you can see below which, in my opinion, shows the real possibilities of 3D printing in art. It looks like a splash frozen in time. You can create this using a 3D animation program, but 3D printing gives you the possibility to materialize this animation into a real object.
Picking up the same idea is an art piece called Waterfall by Eyal Gever. It is a captured image from his animation Black Waterfall that is now touchable and real.
Also nice to see was this blueish, tissue like sculpture:
Also great and last but not least useful were some exhibits at the Materialize booth. For example these two 3D printed chairs, one made of metal, one made of plastic.
And one more example of what 3D printing art can do are the sculptures from Smart Factory, Lithuania. Smart Factory takes 3D scans of full persons, busts or or heads and 3D prints them in different materials. Though, they are not just using additive methods to create their sculptures but also use milling machines to create busts or torsos made of marble or oak wood. It doesn't take a sculptor to make a marble statue of your loved one or yourself. And you are free to choose from nearly any material.
And that's what 3D printing art is all about, the possibility to let every virtual art become real, using any material you can imagine.
