Stratasys Ltd., the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, has recently declared that it has collaborated with esteemed designers to create the world’s first 3D printed artworks on the company’s breakthrough full color, multi-material J750 3D Printer. The 3D printed pieces – ‘Wolfkiam’ from Nick Ervinck and ‘Polyomino’ from Jose Sanchez – are the first two art and design projects to exploit the advanced capabilities of the new full-color multi-material 3D printer, enabling an unprecedented array of colors and level of detail, as well as geometric complexities for the 3D printing industry.
As the first piece to be unveiled as part of the Stratasys’ The New Ancient 3D printed collection, Nick Ervinck’s Wolfkiam sculpture epitomizes the dialogue between old and new by combining traditional designs inspired by Incan and Mayan cultures with the advanced technological forms inherent to digitally-produced artworks.
While the Wolfkiam sculpture represents the launch of a brand new series of artworks from Stratasys, Polyomino marks the fruition of a longstanding professional collaboration with Architect, Programmer and Game Designer, Jose Sanchez.
Both artworks feature ultra-smooth surfaces enabled by the new Stratasys J750 full color, multi material 3D Printer, with layer thickness as fine as 0.014mm – around half the width of a human skin cell.
