This exciting event matches 10 contemporary designers with 10 collection objects that have been 3D scanned. Designers spend two intensive days manipulating the 3D object files, using as much creativity as they can muster to design their own hacked interpretations. Working in a studio environment, the designer’s challenge is to design and print their hacked object on Makerbot 3D printers in the FabLab within 2 days. Watch the design process and get updates from our MC, with printing tips, curator and designer interviews.
This program has been assisted by Wysiwyg 3D, Bilby 3D Pty. Ltd., 3D Printing Studio and University of New South Wales, School of Architecture and Design. The 3D scanned object files provided by Wysiwyg 3D will be available on the web as open source.
