I met this person yesterday and got to handle a couple of her 3D metal prints. Very solid. Very awesome.

"...the design is laid down, one layer at a time, in stainless-steel powder held in place by a laser-activated binder."
"After the whole model is built up, and the extra powder is shaken off, the piece goes into an oven, where heat drives off the binder and fuses the steel powder."
"to get rid of the porosity, the airspace that remains in the piece will be replaced with liquid bronze."

  • Yeah, I love her work. Pretty much out of my price range, but it's very cool to look at.
    • i've been in love with her work for years and years, and then discovered that i knew people who knew her... which is how i ended up being a bunch of imprefect seconds from her at her studio.

      she does awesome art and the 3d printing is just unbelievable.
      • She's the girlfriend of someone on my f'list. I haven't met her yet or seen her works in person, but I'd like to.
        • (probably obviously, but i meant BUYING not BEING above :)

          yeah, it's worth doing -- she has a studio at joy street, so open studios or joy street open studios she sometimes opens things up ...
        • She's the girlfriend of someone on my f'list.
          She’s also somebody I knew in college. Had no idea she was on the east coast; last I knew she lived out west.

          [info]darxus, was she in town for some event, or does she live here now?
          • She splits her time between East & West coast. She used to be my downstairs neighbor before I moved. :)
