How MakerBot’s 3D scanner works
The Powers of 3D Printing from iiNet Newsletter July 20, 2016
People are talking a lot about 3D printing these days, even though it’s far from a new idea since the first 3D printing device was created in 1984. Though the concept isn’t new, the things we can do with 3D printing today are completely revolutionary and unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
In complete ignorance we Humans have caused environmental disaster on Earth with our activities. We have destroyed the very fabric of nature that helped us come into existence on this planet; the situation is grim and looks irreversible. Governments and Environmentalist all across the world are working hard to change the way we use the resources and busy finding sustainable ways of existence on earth. A Taiwan based Artist Hung-Chih Peng is someone who has a vision of changing the tide someday, His latest work, The Deluge – Noah’s Ark, is currently on exhibit at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. According to Peng, it’s meant to provide a metaphor for the ongoing battle waged by Mother Nature on our industrialized civilization.
This Art Installation is part of and exhibition at White Rabbit Gallery, 30 Balfour St, Chippendale NSW 2008 Australia until July 29, 2018.
In HG Wells’s novel The Sleeper Awakes, the hero emerges from a 200-year coma into a dystopian world whose rulers use poverty and propaganda to keep an enslaved populace under control.
In the 1940s, Mao and his revolutionaries set out to awaken the Chinese “sleeping lion” and build a powerful new nation. Seventy years on, the future has arrived—but is it the socialist utopia they dreamed of?
In THE SLEEPER AWAKES, some of China’s most original contemporary artists reflect on a society where unprecedented freedom, ambition and optimism coexist uneasily with anxiety, isolation and ubiquitous state surveillance.

Disney researchers have combined 3D printing with a clever new algorithm that makes it possible to create an object of any shape and make it spin.
Nonprofit New Story teamed up with construction firm ICON to develop a 3D printer that can construct a four-room house in 12 to 24 hours. Human-built equivalent houses take between 13 to 20 days to build, making this tech a potential game changer for the 1.2 billion people who lack adequate shelter. The team plans to bring costs down from $10,000 to $4,000 per house and build 100 homes in El Salvador next year.
HEADUS 3D Full Body 3D Scans / Cyber Scans, headus has the latest Cyberware WBXU full body scanning system. The WBXU captures the full body in a single 17 second scan, the four cameras measuring both geometry and colour from all directions at once. Because of the high scan speed and instant feedback, multiple scans are usually taken so that the best can be selected for further processing. Often additional scans are taken to capture missing details, especially if the clothing is multi-layered, such as a long coat or jacket over other clothing, or if the subject is in an “action” pose. The data from these extra scans is then merged into the target scan as part of the editing process
