Revolution in Art & Design using 3D Printing | Objet for Neri Oxman

Revolution in Art & Design using 3D Printing Objet for Neri OxmanA special thanks to MIT Media Lab’s Neri Oxman, Peter Schmitt (3D printed clock) & Amit Zoran (3D printed flute) for kindly allowing footage of their 3D printed models to be used in the making of this film. (Some of these parts were created using a variety of 3D printing technologies including Objet.)
In this insightful interview, Neri Oxman,architect, designer and professor of Media Arts and Sciences and Director of the Mediated Matter group at the MIT Media Lab, explains the differences between ‘additive’ and ‘subtractive’ manufacturing. Inspired by things that ‘grow’ in nature, Oxman uses the world’s most advanced 3D printing technology – the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer to produce some incredible models which will be on display at the Pompidou Center until August 6th 2012 at the ‘Multiversites Creatives’ exhibit. Neri also explains 3D printing within the wider paradigm shift in technology and manufacturing – comparing it to the Gutenberg 2D print revolution of the 1440’s.
