Objet stand P19 Level 2, Porter Tun Room, The Brewery, London.
Seminar session: How 3D printing is used within their business by Legacy
Effects´ Jason Lopes Saturday, 20th October 15:00-16:00 and Sunday 21st October
With a goal of extending the awareness of 3D printing, Objet Ltd [http://www.objet.com ]., the innovation leader in 3D printing [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mX6G-TluQHE&feature=plcp ] for rapid prototyping [http://objet.com/knowledge-center/rapid-prototyping ] and additive manufacturing, exhibits some stunning examples of real-life professional 3D printing applications at the inaugural 3D Printshow today.
Two pieces from Neri Oxman´s ´Imaginary Beings: Mythologies of the Not Yet´ [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhg267Xv2oY&feature=plcp ] series, recently exhibited at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, take centre stage on the Objet stand (P19 Level 2, Porter Tun Room). Printed using Objet´s unique Connex multi-material 3D printing technology [http://objet.com/3d-printers/connex ], Oxman explains why the process was significant in the development of the pieces, "Objet 3D printing technology was extremely important in dreaming up this project. It wasn´t about generating forms and then using 3D printing to print them. It was really about using multi-material technology as an opportunity to think about how to make these ´contraptions´ or ´wearable myths´ mythical, and how to actually make them work better as products or objects for the human body."
Legacy Effects´ Jason Lopes, another Objet technology user, explains how 3D printing is used within the business in two seminars on Saturday 20th October 15:00-16:00 and Sunday 21st October 11:00-12:00. An award winning full service character design, make-up and animatronic studio, Legacy Effects´ work can be seen feature films such as Avatar, Iron Man II, Shutter Island, Alice in Wonderland, and Thor and has been nominated for an Academy Award(R) for Iron Man. With Objet Eden and Objet Connex multi-material 3D printers, Lopes´ team is able to react to short deadlines, cater for multiple projects and make changes and different versions easily with quick conversion from scan files: "The best thing about 3D printing for me and my team is that our customers and actors can interact and try out the fit of our concept designs. When we produce character suits, creature mock ups and make-up effects, the materials are so durable and workable they can really see how it´s going to work out for them on set."
Designer Daniel Hilldrup will also feature Objet 3D printed work at the show. ´Flux´, appearing in the 3D Printshow´s art gallery, was produced on an Objet Connex multi-material 3D Printer.
Described by Hilldrup as "a statement on the transference of energy and its transition and total transformation from one physical state and form into another", Flux depicts black candle wax melting into the liquid base of a candelabra, captured, like a fossil, at a specific moment in time.
"We´re delighted to count Objet among the exhibitors at the 3D Printshow, " says Kerry Hogarth, founder of the 3D Printshow. "As a leading player in the 3D printing community, providing professional equipment for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, Objet makes an excellent addition to the show."
