This is a prototype of a new headphone set - made in America, 3D printed, laser cut and styled like a graffiti piece. There’s nothing you can’t make if you put your heart into it! BTW you can buy a set on Kickstarter - http://kck.st/10DLlaf
Camilla d’Errico’s Hear Danielle Roar
Camilla is donating this month’s proceeds of the “Hear Danielle Roar” print to the Non-Profit, Walking For Lions: http://www.walkingforlions.org/home/4575224711

Another mysterious architectural print for one of the students’ projects. Turned out really well! #lambchop #3dprinting #3dmodel #sciarc #rapidprototyping
Watching Andrew and Lambchop in action for the past few weeks has been the single biggest learning experience for me. I learn a lot by reading, and by others’ explanations, but until I see/feel/do something, it’s just a theory with many “shoulds” and unrealistic expectations. So my first few trips to see Lambchop were real eye openers for me. I also got a little giddy; I do love technology!
I’m an entranced five year old hearing cute little robot sounds, watching lights, movement and something magically building from nothing. I’m also studying this magic box, fingers crossed that the object will print properly; we’ve been running complex prints that have taught us (and our customers) the value of clean files, support material and proper positioning of the object on the bed to obtain the best print quality.
When you think of a printer, you think of the “print” button and then walk away. In this case, there’s so much more involved than just sending a file to print. We’re spoiled with desktop paper printers we all know and use on a daily basis. If a Desktop 3D Printer were even a fraction as easy to use as a Desktop Paper Printer, then a first grader could run this machine. The truth is that is far more complicated, finicky, and delicate. It requires a deep understanding of 3D modeling, of technology, and manufacturing processes and materials.
The vocabulary alone is staggering. Here I thought I was all smarty-fancy-pants and knew terms like calibration, resolution, heating plate…no, I did not. Filament, extruder, mesh, spool, print head, build bed, raft,support material, PLA, ABS … that’s just the beginning. That’s the kindergarten level.
So the learning curve continues, my vocabulary is expanding, and now that we’ve got a lull in students’ project needs we’ll be able to experiment with some of our own things and run test prints too.
My underwater masterpiece! #art #datenight

#basemanshouse is huge! So much fun in every room. (at Skirball Cultural Center)
This is what you do with leftover support material from 3D Printing … Graphite and paint and make it into some abstract piece of art!
