One More Designer: Dizingof

By on August 4th, 2012 in Design


After publishing Chris Waldo’s terrific “Showcase of Influential 3D Print Artists” the other week, we received a suggestion of another artist who might have been missed: Dizingof. Under his real name, Tel Aviv-based Asher Nahmias, specializes in mathematically-generated 3D models, or “math art”. 
Dizingof’s creations are typically complex, flowing and invariably beautiful. Browsing through his extensive portfolio of dozens of designs, you’ll see vases, jewelry, bowls, lamp shades and a few trays and holders, but mostly it’s just art, amazing mathematical art. On his Thingiverse page he says: 
My aim is to raise the bar of the free 3D content for your personal/work 3D Printer.
You can find and even purchase his works on a wide variety of 3D printing service sites, including Ponoko, GrabCAD and i.Materialise. You won’t find him on Shapeways, however, due to a controversy you can read about here
You’ll also find him on Thingiverse, where he’s offered over 100 3D models free for download.

  1. If you can call a one man crusade against a successful company a controversy.
    With thousands of active designers on that site and not one backing his claims, you should be ashamed to include such a link.
    And you are hurting those designers by publishing such nonsense as it may scare away potential buyers.
    And most of Dizingof designs and styles are just copies of other popular designers such as Bathsheba Grossman and Nervous System.
    Compare "his" klein bottle, gyroid cube or Enneper lamp with those by Bathsheba. Or his "subdivision" stuff with Nervous. And so on.
    When he was caught doing this, only then did he publish all this stuff on thingiverse.
    Influential? Yes, but not as a designer, more as a disruptive influence.
