Cape Town : Guild Design Fair – Agents of the 3D Revolution
MICHAELLA JANSE VAN VUUREN
Phd. – Electrical engineering – South African
“..van Vuuren’s work is about experimentation and evolution, about art and science and new materials and processes. She looks at technology as a creative tool and has turned to new methods of manufacturing and design that have pushed the boundaries beyond what could ever be achieved by conventional processes.
Digital design and additive manufacturing have become her tools and it is the perfect medium to explore her artistic and technical interests.
By means of 3D printing she has been able to give substance to her imagination, with no limit to realising even the most elaborate image.” GUILD

What is 3 DIMENTIONAL PRINTING?…
“… or Additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model.
3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.
3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).” Wikipedia

Enthusiastic Van Vuuren’s wish, was to inspire
“…creatives with the possibilities of 3d printing and to exposing programmers, engineers and 3D designers to the groundbreaking work being showcased at Guild. We would like to create a dialogue between 3D print manufacturers, designers and the many visitors to the show.”
