The Art of 3D Printing

Abstract:
And judging from a new exhibit at the MoMA, designers understand additive fabrication machines can do things engineers haven't quite dreamed of yet.

The exhibit, Design and the Elastic Mind, explores the often reciprocal relationship between science and design. And Antonelli filled the exhibit with objects and concepts that highlight what she considers disruptive or potentially disruptive technologies. Though the exhibit divvies them up differently than Design News' readers would, these technologies include nanotech, computer-aided design, advanced actuators, biomimicry, robotics, motion control and 3D printing.

Just as we often do here at Design News, Antonelli uses "3D printing" as a catch-all term for all the computer-driven, additive fabrication systems, not just the few machines that actually use ink-jet deposition methods. And she picked some interesting objects to show what these technologies can do.
