Calling all artists and designers who are interested in having your 3D designs made into a full-colour paper 3D print! Fab Lab Adelaide are partnering with DGS 3D (the Australian distributor for Mcor IRIS 3D printers), for the launch of the IRIS 3D printer. These printers use Selective Deposition Lamination, a simple and innovative process of full colour paper 3D printing.
Your 3D printed model will be exhibited in the gallery at the launch of the IRIS in Sydney, Rydes Hotel, Parramatta on Thursday 25th July, and a copy of the model will also be mailed to you.
If you are interested in taking part you will need to submit your designs in OBJ, STL or VRML formats by Friday June 21st. Here are a few guidelines for the models:
Maximum build size is 256mm x 169mm x 15mm.
Builds can be stacked on the Z axis, so you can design a whole set of furniture, or a few pieces of fruit for a Still Life, or a toy train with 2 carriages and fit it all into the same build.
Photography – The IRIS is the only 3D printer that’s printing in true colour (because it’s using paper and ink) so it’s going to revolutionise photography. Anyone can take a series of 2D images on their ordinary phone camera, upload them into 123D Catch, and the software sorts the images and gives you a 3D image. It is worth a look for anyone interested in photography.
Furniture of any kind – indoor or outdoor furniture and furnishings, garden gnomes, doll’s houses, photo frames, lamps, sofas, baby cradles, dining settings, etc
Toys – as simple as ABC blocks, or a new superhero
Artistic – ornaments, figurines, sculptures
Consumables – anything from tea sets to shoes
As Mcor’s co-founder Dr Conor MacCormack says “what you see on the screen is what you get in your hand, and that’s limited only by your imagination”.
