Sampling and remixing objects

Makerbot have kindly published my views on object sampling here. In summary I see a future in popularising a design approach of making variations, iterations and mash-ups of existing objects by combining 3D scanning, computational ‘remixing’ and 3D printing.

Vase 3. 3D scanned vase modified using the processing (+hemesh) sketch I’ve been working on that imports stl files, parametrically distorts them (i.e. twist), adds thickness, and neatly crops them ready for print. Here at the iMal / Generator.x 3.0 workshop we are using makerbots, this print was done on a thing-o-matic.

3D scanning + Processing + makerbot. First prototype from the Generator X 3.0 workshop at iMal, Brussels.
