A preseantation on a unique design and printing methods for 3D printers was given
by Yasusi Kanada (the CTO of Dasyn.com) in
4th International Conference on Additive Manufacturing and Bio-Manufacturing
(ICAM-BM 2014, Beijing) (November 12-14).
The presentation title was “3D-printing of Generative Art by using Combination and Deformation of Direction-specified 3D Parts”.
By using this design method, which is completely different from conventional CAD-based method,
simple shapes such as a cup is first defined, and various artistic shapes can be
generated by deforming them.
The printing method is also unique, i.e., different from conventional layer-by-layer methods.
In this presentation, a video on printing a dish with helical head motion,
which was uploaded to YouTube,
was shown and the technology was explained.
