3D Model Printed – Literally

By on February 16th, 2012 in Usage


3D models are printed on 3D printers every day, yes? This time engineers at Objet attempted to print an actual 3D model – an object that *looks* like a 3D model. And they succeeded. Just look at the image above (click for larger view) and you’ll see what we mean. This image is not computer generated! It’s a picture of a fruit bowl and a printed 3D object designed to look like the representation you’d see in a wireframe 3D model on screen. Except for one thing: it’s real! Amazing.
