This weeks Designer for Hire has spent the past six years pushing the boundaries of 3D print, and is here to share his knowledge with anyone looking to get their models printed. Though Eric van Straaten lives in the Netherlands, his colorful, lifelike 3D printed sculptures have been exhibited throughout the world—from Tokyo to Berlin to San Francisco.
Eric can help you create a 3D model from scratch or fix a model so it can successfully be 3D printed. An expert with colored (textured) modeling, Eric is experienced in retaining color information, which is sometimes lost during the model-fixing process. Contact Eric to help you make your ideas real.
