Artist Ioan Florea has developed a new technique for linking the new technology of 3D printing with the ancient art of painting. The recent immigrant to the USA has developed a line of fast dry oil pants, but we’re most interested in the way in which he integrated 3D printing.
The process begins with the production of several organic 3D shapes, printed on a Solidoodle 3. These shapes are then placed on a canvas using the new process. Florea says, “The custom transfer to canvas involves resin fusing–curing (but not UV curing)”.
…This work and others are actually on display at the South Bend Museum of Art in, of course, South Bend, Indiana until May 2015… Florea develops these amazing works from his two studios, one located in Illinois and the other in his native Romania – in Transylvania, specifically, and quite near Dracula’s castle….
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!
