This week we are thrilled to highlight Jeremie Brunet, mechanical engineer and designer behind Jeremie Brunet 3D fractals. His shop is full of fascinating designs that let us visualize a world we normally can’t see. Check out his shop and learn more about his inspiration below.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located?
I did studies in mechanical engineering (manufacturing processes, materials, structures…) and I work in the enterprise software industry. My hobby is fractals, under any shape: images, videos, and of course 3D prints. I live in Paris, France.
What’s the story behind your designs? What inspires you?
All my designs are based on fractal geometry. I’m inspired by the beauty of mathematics and I like to push the limits of fine details. Fractals represent infinity and limitless self-replication.
What brought you to 3D printing with Shapeways?
How did you learn how to design in 3D?
Using 3D fractal rendering programs and various other tools. I don’t use traditional 3D tools such as Blender… I use mostly very exotic software.
How do you promote your work?
Of course social networks : Facebook, Twitter, DeviantArt and YouTube. I’m also a member of several mathematical art associations : Ars Mathematica, and the European Society for Mathematics & Arts. Sometimes I give interviews to the press, and I do exhibitions in different countries.
Who are your favorite designers or artists? Who in the Shapeways community has served as an inspiration to you?
I’m inspired by Escher, Dali or Vasarely
If you weren’t limited by current technologies, what would you want to make using 3D printing?
Ultra-fine details and ultra-large scale 3D fractals with moving parts.
Anything else you want to share?
I published a book with my best works, available here.
WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THIS SHOP:
- Really great photography
- Huge selection of products – makes for fun browsing
- Great branding
- Interesting and inspiring shop description
- Sections for easy shopping (interesting idea to have Less than $15 in Plastic!)
Thanks so much, Jeremie! Keep up the great work – the shop looks lovely and really shows off the amazing wonders of 3D printing bringing different aspects of life and math into the physical world.
