The RapidPro trade show is of to kick off in the Netherlands following month, which means which there may be a few show stopping pieces hitting the floor. One artist understandn for sizeable-bodied, math-based pieces is Rinus Roelofs, who can be unveiling a fewthing really significant at the event: a 2.3-meter tall, 3D printed sculpture.
Roelofs has been digitally sculpting for the past twenty years, with 3D printing enabling him to bring his not easy shapes into the physical world with 3D printing. Until not long ago, yet, there have not been machines big adequate to turn it into sizeable-bodiedr, outdoor displays. For RapidPro, the artist has been able-bodied to leverage the ability and sizeable-bodied-scale 3D printing devices of engineering house 3Dealise who have assisted Roelofs in 3D printing his latest outdoor piece.
From the looks of it, Roelofs’s 2.3-meter tall piece may be printed of an ExOne machine, meaning which it can be created of sand, which may have been utilized to cast a metal sculpture. We’ll have to wait until following month at RapidPro to understand for certain.
