Shapeways community member and mathematician Henry Segerman was recently interviewed on BBC Radio show Outriders about mathematical shapes and their transference to the physical world as sculpture via 3D printing. Listen to the interview, check out Henry's site and ponder visualizations of a multi dimension universe. You may remember Henry's Hilbert Curve 3D print (pictured below), and Knotted Kog. Henry is a research fellow at the University of Melbourne doing research in 3-dimensional geometry and topology, particularly involving ideal triangulations.
Want to get together and talk all things 3D printing with other Shapeways users in NYC? Join us on Tuesday December 13 at Birch Coffee for coffee/wine and bring your 3D prints, examples of post production or questions about 3D Printing. Join us upstairs in the Birch Coffee Library at 7pm and be sure to RSVP via Meetup so that we can reserve enough space. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Where: Birch Coffee, Upstairs, 5 East 27th Street, Manhattan, NY
As the end of the year fast approaches and time seems to accelerate to some kind of holiday induced singularity the chance to order 3D printed gifts for family and friends is closing fast. Visit the Holiday Planning Page for all details but those in Europe and North America have until December 9th to get orders in the remaining materials while those in the rest of the world have unfortunately now missed the deadline of December 4th. If you have missed the window of opportunity you can still get a Gift Certificate for the prefect last minute gift. More on that soon.
On Tuesday 29th of November in front of a capacity crowd of over 800 of New York's tech community at NYU Skirball Center, VP of Engineering and in house magician Josh Levine pulled some 3D magic out of his hat, literally.
