uformit – Parametric Design Publishing Permits Users to Customize Designs Before Results Are Printed #3DPMarketplace #3DThursday #3DPrinting


A few more products beyond the Joshua Harker mask have been added to uformit. Here is a market place that offers designs that can be tweaked before by customers before they are 3D printed. Uformit:

The uformit concept has been a long time in the making. A few of the founders of Uformia put together an early implementation in 2005, well before the commercial entity was established. However they decided that laser focus was needed on the development of the geometric kernel and software tools built on top of that in order to make a concept like uformit possible in the future. From that point on, Uformia kept an eye out to find the right enthusiasts to help spearhead the implementation of such a concept.

…uformit is excited to take personalized designs to an entirely new level by giving the designers all the control in deciding which elements of their design should be exposed to their customers. Customers may not know it, but they are actually 3D modeling when they are changing the parameters on uformit. The simple to use interface merely hides all the complexity of 3D modeling systems, but as Uformia’s geometric kernel is fully available on the backend, this provides for endless options of parameterization for each design.

uformit will always be the place to come to find high quality, unique designs which can be personalized. In the future, uformit’s ecosystem will expand to allow anyone with a user account, to be able to upload their designs, and share, trade and even participate in the curation process of deciding what designs should be sold on uformit….

Self Portrait Mask

This unique decorative mask from renowned artist Joshua Harker combines one of his filigree patterns with his actual biometric face data. Add your own 3D face scan to personalize the mask and blur the relationship between viewer and artist – making it the ultimate modern day self portrait.
