Break the Mould: People Take Part in the 3D Printing Revolution

Break The Mould

During the 48th annual Brighton Digital Festival 2013, which brings some of the best artists and companies in the world together in the UK, digital creative agency Developing Dreams and artist Emilia Telese showcased this incredible 3D printing project. Housed in a gigantic curvy, willow sculpture, which represents entering a womb, a 3D scanner built by 3Dify (using an Xbox360 and Skanect) scanned participants, then printed them out as 8cm high figures on Ultimaker 3D printers. The scanner was controlled by an 80’s style joystick and rotated around each person at differing heights. The project allowed participants to take part in the 3D printing revolution and was called Break the Mould. Film Director Sarita Frit captured the essence of this awesome installation in the Vimeo documentary after the jump.
