Emmett Lalish: 3Dx2013 Year In Review #AdafruitTopTen #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning #3D

We reached out to a handful of 3D printing pioneers and designers featured on the Adafruit blog this past year for their thoughts on the year-in-review — and what we have to look forward to for 3D printing in 2014!

We’ve shared about aerospace engineer and 3D designer Emmett Lalish a number of times over the past year, highlighting a few of his insanely popular contributions to Thingiverse such as Screwless Heart Gears, Stretchy Bracelet, Automatic Transmission Model, Preassembled Secret Heart Box, Blossoming Lamp, and more! He is now a part of Microsoft’s new 3D printing group.


Q: Top three printing moments from 2013?

1. Kinematics @ Home bracelets by nervoussystem (Thingiverse, nervoussystem)

Generative art is awesome and I really like that they made this work with cheap printers for free.

2. Fully Articulated 3D Printed Dress by Michael Schmidt and Francis Bitonti for Dita Von Teese:

3D printing for high fashion is pretty awesome, and I love the quotes.

3. Actin filament construction set by Andrey:

I’ve gotten much more excited about biology since I realized that proteins are just tiny LEGO blocks. And now you can play with them! This guy has a whole series of these, and the descriptions are great.


Q: What’s a project you shared this year?

Preassembled Secret Heart Box by emmett:

I’m really proud of this one because it causes people who know nothing about 3D printing to appreciate it. Plus it’s a quick print and they made great wedding favors.


Q: What are you most looking forward to for 3D Printing in 2014?

I’m looking forward to more software tools coming out to make designing easier and printing more reliable. I’ll be working on some of those projects.
