February’s MeetUp at 3D Printing Studio

To welcome 2014 the 1st 3D Printing Studio meetup of the year will be on 3D Printing in the TV and Movie Industry!

As movies use a lot of 3D scanning and 3D design they’ll focus on these facets for this meetup. At the meetup you’ll be able to see demonstrations on scanning people and scanning objects, and some basics of both geometric and organic modelling.

So please come along and bring any 3D designs or scans you may have and show them off to the group!

Rizzeria is printmaking collective and own a beautiful Risograph machine which is available to use in our open print studios (Metcalfe Arcade).

Risography has become an art form in itself, the machine is sometimes unpredictable and creates a beautiful, tactile print. It is a hybrid of stencil press, screen printing and photocopying. It prints 1 colour at a time with soy inks through a digitally produced stencil on to paper.

The printmaking possibilities are endless. You can even take your stencil home and attach it to a silk screen and print onto anything!

Check out the postcard from the upcoming postcard set, which is one of the rewards in Rizzeria’s GO FOR GOLD pozible campaign
