So the new year has come and gone, and this year has been pretty busy for us. We got to test and grow our skills attempting some new things. It's also a very exciting time for 3D printing with HP entering in the 3D printer realm with their own machine line.
We got to attend CES in the beautiful Las Vegas. Which was a big surprise to one of our team members who had never been to Vegas before hand.
We have a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline of which we can't talk too much about,I just wanted to tease the world a little. But expect some awesome blog updates in the next few months.
This past weekend was Designer Con 2014 and of course everyone here at Thingify we had to check it out.
It was a grand visual feast of art and creativity. There was 2D art, 3D art, hand made crafts, and of course 3D printed art. You can see some of our favorites posted here and the rest can be seen on our Facebook, Twitter. A particular highlight of the day was meeting of Mr. Brandon Dicks, a very talented artist and awesome personality, check out his work and buy a few things "http://www.brandondicks.com/". He is a great and fun guy whose work showcases his personality.
Overall a great time was had by many, and I look forward to Designer Con 2015.
A-lot has happened in the last year and half in 3D printing.
We have seen some pretty amazing advances in medicine, arts and 3d printing in general. One of my personal favorite occurrences that happened this year is when a 6 year old boy from Florida was given a life changing 3D printed prosthetic arm.
The 3D printing industry seems to be growing everyday with no prospects
Here at Thingify we have been mighty busy. With conventions and overall business dealings. One of the most exciting projects we are doing is a collaboration with the very talented artist Cedric Seaut. You should check out his online portfolio here http://cedricseaut.prosite.com/. Specifically here at Thingify we are working to bring his beautifully designed go|ne universe to life. Pics to be posted soon.
So with that till next time and don't forget to do what you can to make your 'Think to Thing' in order to make the world a better place.
So let's have a conversation about thingifying! Actually, since this is a blog, it will be less of a conversation, and more of a monologue wherein we at Thingify get to talk about things that excite us. Of course, this includes the art of thingifying.
So let's talk about one of the nifty projects we worked on (relatively) recently.
Do you guys do bots? What about cute little ones like this? When John Ottinger sent us the picture of his thingified bot all prettied up with a new layer of paint, well... The office may have let out a collective squeal for the cuteness.
Ok, granted, we didn’t do the painting. All that credit goes to John for his marvelous brush work. He made working with him quite easy, and his finished product was definitely something for us to get excited over.
While it would have been a lot of fun to collaborate with him from the beginning, he came to us with his homework done. He had a model all set up and ready for us to use, so our main job was to thingify it. After verifying the model, we sent it off to the printer for him. Seriously, working with him was a blast, especially since he was candid with us about his inspiration for the bot. It helped that we were so curious. One of our first questions after taking on the project involved asking “Where did it come from?” and “Why is it so cute?!”
Necessary questions for us, of course. How else would we satisfy our insatiable curiosity?
Luckily, John was ready and willing to answer our questions. It turns out that John is in the middle of an interesting project, bigger than the one bot we thingified for him. Over the course of his daily commute (home to work), he’s created a world of machines. Every day he draws a new bot in this world and, with the help of his daughter, he’s begun collating them into mini-stories. Eventually he will be putting them all together into a book! Luckily, he decided to share a few pages with us. (SNEAK PEAK!)
If you all think these pages are adorable, well, he has already launched a Kickstarter to make the artbook a reality. I’m sure you guys are as thrilled by his art as we are, so please back his project. We already have!
