Howdy, I’m Joshua. If you haven’t already caught one of my recent blog entries I am happy to announce that I’ll be adding my 2 cents here. Big thanks to Shapeways for the opportunity to contribute. I’m mostly focused on digital sculpture & fine arts, technology advances, new applications, & miscellaneous oddities & funnery from the land of 3d printing. My little corner of the 3d printed universe recently got a whole lot bigger when my Kickstarter campaign–(Crania Anatomica Filigre) became the #1 most funded sculpture project in their history and #3 in Arts overall. Shapeways did all the printing for the project & helped make big things happen in a short amount of time.
I come from a fine arts background with over 20 years experience in the toy, invention & design, special effects, rapid prototyping, and product development industries. In 1998 I founded a boutique design & development firm servicing some of the largest global properties & corporations. There I provided design & development support & owned various 3d printers & CNC machinery. In 2008, I committed to digital sculpture & 3d printing as my medium & returned full-time to fine arts when I figured out how to develop my series of “Tangles” 3 dimensionally. I currently live & work in Chicago. Again, thank you to Shapeways for having me!
