Digital Natives by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez on Thingiverse #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez has decided to share a popular model from his Digital Natives collection to the 3D printing community at Thingiverse!

From the description for Thingiverse Thing 109337:

Popular 3D print from my Digital Natives collection that I’ve decided to give away to the 3D printing community to say thank you for all the support. The colours have been changed from the original. Feel free to print at different scales but tall works best, and explore colour.

And from his description for the Digital Natives:

Digital Natives

2012

z-corp powder composite and z-corp tinted binder

Everyday items such as toys and a watering can are 3D scanned using a digital camera and subjected to algorithms that distort, abstract and taint them into new primordial vessel forms. In some cases only close inspection reveals traces inherited from their physical predecessors. These are then 3D printed on a z-corp printer.

Vessels are arguably the lowest common denominator for man-made objects across all cultures, these objects however have no storage function other than to embody the stored digital data that describes them.

Development credits:
The algorithms are executed within my own made software 3D interfaces; co_former for transforming shape and #ccc (colour co-creator) for generating colour. These output files ready for 3D printing in colour. I’ve coded these with Processing, and libraries Hemesh, ControlP5, and Toxiclibs.

The objects were first on display at the 3D Print Show, London, October 19-22.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
