After a successful show in 2012, the 3D Printshow is returning for another year at a bigger venue. The Business Design Centre not only provides more space than the Brewery, but it also fits the brief more appropriately. For what is the 3D Printshow all about, but showcasing the latest innovations in design technology?
The show will run between 7th-9th November, and although the first two days is mainly for businesses, designers, and artists, Saturday will focus on the consumer market.
Look out for the contemporary 3D Art Gallery, in which artists have used geometry and computer coding to create complex installations and virtual spaces. Technology also has a significant impact on the fashion world from patterns on clothing to sculpting jewellery, and personalising accessories.
You can take part in interactive workshops and educational programmes that involve learning the processes involved in manufacturing, from the initial concept to the finished product.
3D is often a word synonymous with movies these days; technology has evolved so much over the last decade, it is amazing the things filmmakers can create with a computer. Take an inside look at the real-world solutions that allow Hollywood studios to create astonishing CGI effects for movies such as Iron Man, Transformers, and Coraline.
