    DBLG's in-house studio projects are a platform for us to experiment with creative ideas and above all have fun. For this project we wanted to explore and combine 3d animation, 3D printing with stop frame animation. Massive thanks for Blue Zoo for the character animation http://www.blue-zoo.co.uk and Resonate http://www.resonatemusic.co.uk for the audio mix and sound design.

    • VRZ 1. a tack bike frame with 3d printed lugs


      from Ralf Holleis Added 143K 934 41

      MORE @ www.ralfholleis.com/VRZ-2 VRZ 1. is a track bike frame with 3d printed Stainless steal lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes. The VRZ 2 is the same set up with 3d printed Titanium Lugs and carbon belt drive... so its 4,9 kg this method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time. you could change the geometry to what ever you like, then the lugs gets generated by a software. now we just need to print the parts finish them and glue the frame together. pics on www.vorwaertz.com musik by robot koch www.soundcloud.com/robot-koch carbon fiber tubes from www.carbon-werke.de and the 3d printed parts are lasercused on a concept laser machine www.concept-laser.com I made this diploma thesis under the guidance of Prof. Raab. www.coburg-designlab.de Cam: CANON 500D

        • Intro to 3D printing with Cinema 4D and Makerbot


          from The Hive Added 16.8K 301 18

          3D printing has become more and more popular these days. Thanks to companies like Makerbot you can purchase your own 3D printer small enough to fit on your desk. In this tutorial we'll show you how to model an alien space craft in Cinema 4D then take it into Makerbot's Makerware software to create a 3D print.

              • HoloDecks - Augmented Sound Sculpture


                from lukasz Added 37.2K 358 13

                http://www.julapy.com/work/holodecks-sound-sculptures/ HoloDecks is an umbrella project for a number of studies which focus on transforming sound through different mediums. This study begins with a custom application built in openFrameworks which visualises audio from a song by Oneohtrix Point Never, titled Zebra. The base shape chosen for the visualisation is a disc which has always been a ubiquitous shape associated with music storage formats such as compact discs and vinyl records. Audio data from the song displaces the geometry of the disc to create a swirly visual echo of the audios last few seconds. At any point in the visualisation, a snapshot of the generated 3d model can be taken. OpenFrameworks does a great job at exporting 3D models using the .ply format which then needs to be converted into .obj format so it can be printed with a Makerbot 3D printer. Up to this point, the sound has been transformed from pure audio data, into a software visualisation and then materialised into the real world using a 3D printer. A final transformation is undertaken by augmenting the 3D printed sound sculpture using a mobile device to see another layer of audio reactive visuals mapped to the object. sound sculptures available on shapeways, https://www.shapeways.com/model/1451490/holodecks-swirl.html https://www.shapeways.com/model/1462083/holodecks-peaks.html https://www.shapeways.com/model/1462371/holodecks-peaks-colored.html

                • Makers: Mini Maker Faire Toronto


                  from Ryan Varga Added 15.9K 155 12

                  Mini Maker Faire Mini Documentary. Held at Evergreen Brick Works, the Toronto Mini Maker Faire celebrated the culture of making, crafting, DIY-ing, tinkering, hacking and sharing. It was a weekend where makers of all kinds shared their projects and thoughts. Exhibits on display included robots, laser cutting, letterpress printing, a 3D print gallery and kinetic sculptures. I visited the Maker Faire at the Brick Works to find out what it means to make things – to be a maker? This film is about that question. It is about the relationship between people and technology and how they merge through the act of making. Call it “craft in an age of digital fabrication”. If you want some more in-depth insight, watch "We Make Things" vimeo.com/16850121 .

The idea was to use images, videos and sound fallen in the national pubic domain and use them in a sort of “Mashup”. The event was called Public Domain Remix. The students had one day (8 hours) to pick their digital material and transform it, hack it or remix it. Le FabShop, was invited as a digital manufacturing expert to help the students realise their project. After a short brainstorm, all the teams came up with similar ideas, except one, who really went out of the box with their concept. They had this silly idea of making a machine that could automatically create tattoos taken from a bank of images. They learned from le FabShop's representative that their concept was more than feasible. It could be prototyped by themselve, using the school's equipment. In one afternoon, they managed to hack a Desktop 3D printer and enable it to trace on skin, using a pen instead of the extruder. The crowd was amazed and the Minister of culture even came to see the projects, but the young designers didn’t want to stop there. They wanted the machine to make REAL tattoos, on REAL skin, so they kept working on the project during their spare time, with some help from teachers and other students. They borrowed a manual tattoo-machine from an amateur tattoo artist and found some artificial skin for the first tests. They chose to draw a simple circle. The perfect shape to test the precision of the process. It worked! But now they had to find a volunteer to be their “guiney pig”… Somehow, they had no difficulty. A lot of people where excited by the idea of being the first human tatooed by a “robot”. The big difficulty was to repeat the same exercise on a curve surface and on a material that has much more flexibility than silicone. Many tricks were tried to tighten the area around the skin ( a metal ring, elastics, scotch tape...) but the most effective one was a scooter’s inner tube, open on the area to be marked. To suceed, everything had to be precise and calculated.
