As usual, we have compiled the top 5 3D printing videos for your enjoyment. With a film that provides you an overview of a 3D printing industry with many future potentials—the 3D printed houses—we begin this week’s selection! You’ll then see Iris van Herpen’s newest collection, which includes the first vegan Haute Couture dress to be 3D printed.
You’ll next learn why 3D scanning is particularly significant for the medical and veterinary fields before witnessing the Princess of Belgium Elizabeth open a 3D printing facility at the University of Leuven. Last but not least, you’ll learn about the first fiberglass pool to be 3D printed!
3D Printed Houses: A Closer Look
Undoubtedly, we will hear more about concrete 3D printing in the future. There are already initiatives throughout the globe that demonstrate what can be done in home construction with the aid of additive manufacturing. Aiman Hussein, director of 3D printing at Alquist, illustrates how a house is constructed using a concrete 3D printer in the video below. The video gives you a fantastic introduction to the technology and demonstrates how to print a house in three dimensions.
At Paris Fashion Week, a 3D-printed dress
Iris van Herpen, a Dutch designer renowned for fusing 3D printing with fashion to create works of art, attracted a lot of attention once more with her new collection, Meta Morphism, unveiled on July 4th in Paris Fashion Week. The supermodel Cindy Bruna-presented gown is particularly unique because it is the first vegan Haute Couture gown to be 3D printed! Take a closer look at that and Iris van Herpen’s other fifteen magnificent works of art!
The Medical and Veterinary Sectors and 3D Scanning
Since 3D scanning enables us to measure tools and parts and swiftly evaluate and fix flaws, it has become significant in various industries. The dimensions are simpler to obtain with 3D scanning because we can inspect the entire product in one scan. This technique is instrumental in the medical and veterinary fields. This time, thanks to experts from the University of Murcia, we have the chance to learn everything there is to know about it. Look more closely!
Elisabeth of Belgium Opens the Leuven 3D Laboratory
Princess Elisabeth of Belgium recently held a ceremony to formally inaugurate a brand-new 3D printing lab at the University of Leuven. The Princess-themed laboratory offers researchers and students the chance to learn more about 3D printing techniques. The princess and the University of Leuven hope to introduce a new generation of young students to science and technology by associating their names with the lab. She also stopped to say hello to a few students on campus.
The First Swimming Pool Ever Printed in 3D
San Juan Pools, a fiberglass pool expert with headquarters in Florida, recently debuted the first 3D-printed fiberglass pool on Fox and Friends, a morning program on the American TV network FOX NEWS. The show’s resident home renovation expert Skip Bedell outlines the advantages of this new pool in the video below and emphasizes how 3D printing may make the production of pools more environmentally friendly.
