3D: printing the future

 

October 2013 saw the opening of ‘3D: printing the future’, an exhibition all about the explosion of 3D printing. With my colleagues we researched the most interesting commercial, industrial and medical applications whilst delving into personal stories of the pioneers, innovators and early users of 3D printed applications.

The exhibition ran for over a year and it’s hard to convey the excitement of knowing that millions of visitors would have seen my handiwork.

3D: printing the future

October 2013 saw the opening of ‘3D: printing the future’, an exhibition all about the explosion of 3D printing. With my colleagues we researched the most interesting commercial, industrial and medical applications whilst delving into personal stories of the pioneers, innovators and early users of 3D printed applications.

To accompany the exhibition I produced some video content explaining some elements of the technology, these include animations and short films with Chocolate Films. First up we have the introduction showing the basic principle of how 3D printing works.

Towards the end of the exhibition we mounted 3D prints of several hundred lucky visitors, who’d come to the museum previously to be 3D scanned. A screen under this wall of people explained how it was done.

Recent advances in 3D printing mean that more people than ever can make their ideas real. This explosion of creativity has created millions of interesting things – some of them could even change your life. No wonder 3D printing is always in the news. But are the stories accurate, or even true? Let our experts guide you around the hype of 3D printing, as they reveal this technology’s real-life potential.
