I asked Open3DLP project developer and “3D Printer Whisperer” Anderson Ta to recommend a 3D designer that has had a profound effect on him and he suggested the Tel Aviv-based Asher Nahmias who goes by “Dizingof”:
As I am someone interested in machine design and processes, designers like Dizingof help push the envelope of my research into new machines and design considerations. The forms he generates also are prime examples of the benefits of 3D printing: there is no other method for making some of his pieces.
I have a heavy math background, so it is an added bonus for me the ways in which his work incorporates math. It’s refreshing to see various formulas and equations come out of a text book and into some of the wildest forms. (The same could also be said for Nervous System…)
Dizingof’s creations are typically complex, flowing and invariably beautiful. Browsing through his extensive portfolio of dozens of designs, you’ll see vases, jewelry, bowls, lamp shades and a few trays and holders, but mostly it’s just art, amazing mathematical art. On his Thingiverse page he [said]: “My aim is to raise the bar of the free 3D content for your personal/work 3D Printer.”
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
