Marc Ecko’s 3D Printed Label for Beck’s

Posted by in Video 30 Comments

Beck’s “Live Beyond Labels” project has launched their 2013 edition bottles. They invited six artists to design the labels for 13.2 million bottles, creating the world’s largest stage for artists. One of the artists they invited was Marc Ecko, who thought that an interesting way to approach the constraints of a flat label was to first 3D model and print it. He printed it using Shapeways and came to the LIC Factory to break out and clean his model. Watch it all in the video below! 

What other brands do you think could leverage Shapeways 3D Printing technology to be more innovative? Sound off in the comments. Oh, and while you’re at it, subscribe to our YouTube Channel :)

      Cheers to your PROFITmatic Turnkey Automated Internet
      Profit Center,. It’s easy to use a fake IP address on i – Phone and i – Pad, but you need to know what you need the fake IP for. If a picture is worth a thousand words then you can just image how much you will absorb by browsing this site.

      So, what you think might be the technicality hidden inside the making of these forms.
      Joomla has thousands of templates and add-ons that are available for
      free, as well as several professional resources available for purchase
      from third party developers.
      Genetic Edge Technologies (GET), makers
      of the bodybuilding supplement Arima – Dex, have voluntarily recalled the product after traces
      of an Aromatase Inhibitor was discovered in an FDA analysis.

      Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
      my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
      She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
      She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
      I had to tell someone!

    I would love to have a chewy metal center for my *Day of the Dead* Nesting doll!

    I’m not sure if this model qualifies but I am under the impression it would print as premium Silver so here goes!

    I reduced my markup to less than $2 on those two models for Gold Plated Brass:
    – New Dod Earings at $14.90: http://shpws.me/oqTb
    – Mini D4 shell Pendant at $12.90: http://shpws.me/oBA6
    I will receive them – in Gold Plated Brass – on August 16th, but I guess they would be also suitable for this new (and mysterious) metal material. ;-)

    I really think that the following design would look exceptionally good in a high detail metal, even though the design is relatively simple (a dice) the metal will really make the geometry and sharp edges stand out and sparkle, as well as giving the design a great look of luxury with the value of the metal and simplicity of the design: http://shpws.me/oyBM

    If the new metal is high resolution, I can also scale down and modify my ship in a bottle design into a pendant: http://shpws.me/owj0

    Hy there,
    once again i´m throwin in my Chess Set “TOILET CHESS” for a weekend competition.
    This time it´s finished and up for sale to the public.

    I really would love to see the whole chess set printed in gold plated brass.
    But I guess, that might be to much. So I´m being modest and suggest:
    THE KING:

    and maybe THE ROOK:
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/1205862/toilet-chess-rook-42-mm.html?li=productBox-search

    and of course, THE BISHOP would be nice:
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/1207763/toilet-chess-bishop-45mm.html?li=productBox-search
    and maybe the NEWSPAPER READER:
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/976963/toilet-chess-pawn-quot-newspaper-reader-quot-30-mm.html?li=productBox-search
    and the QUEEN:
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/1164681/toilet-chess-queen-55mm.html?li=productBox-search
    … and the Knight….. and the Phoner…. and the Multitasker…

    Well, the King alone would be pretty cool.
