Human vs 3D Printer: The Sequel

By on May 6th, 2012 in Event


It was only a few days ago that UK designer Dominic Wilcox challenged a 3D printer to a mano-a-mano duel to produce a model of a cathedral. In round one, Wilcox was able to defeat a MakerBot Replicator with his own two hands and a lump of clay. 
Now there’s been another event, this time Wilcox challenging a Maxit 3D printer from A1 Technologies. The rules of the contest appeared to be similar to the first event: create a cathedral. 
You’re probably wondering who won this contest? 
If you watch the video, you’ll see that Wilcox dominated once again. But here’s the thing: the winner seems to have been decided by audience reaction. And that audience was made entirely of humans. Biased, we think.
