The October 2011 ART && CODE conference at Carnegie Mellon (artandcode.com/3d) featured a weeklong “festival as laboratory” hackathon dedicated to the exploration of new cultural applications of 3D sensing and visualization technologies. During this period, a group of 15 hackers, artists and researchers huddled in CMU’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry to create new Kinect-based artworks and experiments.

Dutch computational artist Rick Companje presents the projects he developed in the Art && Code hackathon, including a "font extruder" application which produces 3D models from typography. Rick's openFrameworks addon generates both STL files and GCodes suitable for 3D printing.

Code for the work Rick presented here can be found at github.com/companje.
