Material ConneXion is the official sponsor of the Print/3D art exhibit in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The exhibition is the recent talk of the town since everything that was on display, was printed by 3D printers. These 3D printers are like those of MakerBot Industries.
There were 3D-printed products made from nylon, plastic, and even ceramic and metals. There was a lot to explore at the exhibition.
“Three-D printing is another form of a process that designers can use to help rapidly prototype and innovate, make new products, design new concepts. Previously, what you would do is take your idea, your CAD file, your drawing could've been a sketch on the back of a napkin and you'd send it off to a company that would take 3-4 weeks to make something now you can take your CAD file, connect it up to your 3D printer and within a couple hours you will have an actual prototype of the product you've designed," says Susan Towers of Material ConneXion.
