We are combining high technology and high art to create something very special – the Rygo. Standing 2 meters tall, it will be the largest such 3D print of any type in North America (quite possibly the Western hemisphere) and will be installed for all the world to see at Gropp’s Gallery of Vancouver, Canada. Crowdfunding the Rygo reflects the best qualities of Vancouver – organic design supported by a grassroots movement. This is also an international effort! The Rygo will be printed in Italy by Enrico Dini’s DShape, itself the largest 3D printer of its kind, measuring 6 x 6 x 8 meters (20 x 20 x 27 ft). The Rygo was designed by famous 3D designer and sculptor Bathsheba Grossman of California, utilizing esoteric math and an artistic touch to craft a piece that would have been un-makeable by any other means.
Everyone in this campaign truly believes that 3D printing will shake up everything you thought you knew about design, construction, manufacturing, architecture, sculpture….you name it. We hope you feel the same. Every contribution is going towards a leap in technology that happens only once a decade.
