We’ve been following the development of BigRep for some time now, and at this point the company is a significant player in the 3D space.

This project from BigRep realizes an architectural sculpture from the artist Juergen Mayer. The design itself is developed out of a data protection pattern, which are the camouflaged patterns that you find on the inside of envelopes or when you get the pin code from your bank. BigRep transformed this design into the 3D printed sculpture, which was exhibited…
3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry and is in the process of replacing many other production methods. Our design team decided to put this idea to the test by looking at which plastics technologies we could replace with large-scale 3D printing. More details
