Computational Thermoforming, the Other 3D Printing?

exture image to be printed on the plastic, thereby ensuring that once the sheet is deformed, each pixel of the texture lands in its correct location on the 3D shape. The material model and the parameters for the simulation are automatically extracted by scanning and analyzing a single calibration object made with our forming pipeline. On the hardware side, we propose an effective method to produce a gypsum mold using a 3D printer with polylactic acid (PLA) filament, and a simple way to print texture on a plastic sheet using a standard color laser printer and transfer paper.

Spanish Company Scans and 3D Prints Every Resident of Village - Make:

Fri, 05/01/2015 - 10:50 -- rprice

“Our goal is to make possible that everybody [in Spain] gets (his or her) own 3D model for free,” said Ángel Llavero, CEO of Grupo Sicnova. To accomplish their feat in Torrequebradilla, Grupo Sicnova invited every resident to step inside the Clonescan 3D, which can scan a person in just 15 seconds. All a user has to do is enter the model’s height, and four infrared sensors work simultaneously to render an image within 90 seconds. The image is then converted into a file in a cloud-based storage system, which participants can later access through Clonescan’s website.

ichard Horne (RichRap) is an Electronics Engineer, Product Designer, Salesman, and Problem Solver working in a wide range of industries and applications, across many platforms and technologies for the last 20 years. My interest and passion for 3D printing started in 2009 after visiting the RepRap project website and reading a series of blog posts by another highly dedicated developer, Nophead. RichRap started blogging, designing and developing with 3D printing shortly after.

3D Printing Goes Mainstream Retail - Rebecca J. Rosen - The Atlantic

Fri, 11/15/2013 - 11:54 -- rprice

3D printing is not unlike the normal old-fashioned 2D printing process, according to Jones. Say someone wants to print business cards. She'll come in with a rough idea of what she's looking for. One of the staff members will begin asking questions: What color did you have in mind? What kind of paper do you like? How do you feel about this font? Then you'll print out a first-go, and it'll be close but not perfect, and you'll improve it from there.
