This is why I am wiring the book 3D Technology in Fine Art and Craft. Companies- take note. Collaborate with artists and watch what they can do. I think it will make it worth your while. I love the quote in this article-
“Because he’s an artist, he’s pushing the envelope further than an industry would,” says Autodesk director Maurice Conti, who first grew interested in Laarman’s work a few year’s back when the designer was using a large scale resin printer. “An artist just has a creative vision and they kind of ignore what the tools are supposed to be able to do and they realize their creative vision.”
