rapid building

May 14, 2011

The design world woke up to this article in the New York Times about the Makerbot.  It will change the world of making.  The ideas in the article that are interesting are their contention that the creative world will be an open source world, or more specifically people who share will come out on top.  I did think that the aesthetics of the work being shown was limited.  This image above is a bar stool model from one of my students Casey d’ Angelo who worked with the program Rhino and the rapid prototyper here.  The form was generated from the 19th century drawings of Haeckel.
