Be inspired by the Shapeshifters Exhibition; Australian Artists using 3D Printing
Then get hands on with Modfab’s 3D Printing Workshops.
The Gladstone Regional Regional Art Gallery and Museum are hosting the ADC Shapeshifters Exhibition. Modfab will be running Design, CAD & 3D Printing Workshops at the Gallery and will be having massive fun with both students and the general public to explore what they can come up with. Here are some of our candidates from previous workshops at the Shapeshifters Exhibition.
Be inspired by the artists in the Shapeshifters Exhibition and then come along to the workshops. Modfab has trained over 800 teachers through our NESA accredited course and thousands of students at schools, University of Wollongong Learning Labs, Wollongong Science Centre, ALPA and RDA Hunter to name a few.
The Shapeshifters exhibition represents a culmination of works by Australian Artists who have embraced Design, CAD & 3D Printing. Notable artists are Louis Pratt with his sculpture King Coal as shown below.
This amazing sculpture took over 2000 hours to 3D print!
Need somewhere to sit? Why not choose a 3D Printed stool that has been crafted by Ryan Penning.
Another artist , Ryan Penning, is also innovative in his use of Design, CAD and 3D Printing. Each stool has its own algorithm and was printed by a robotic arm.
Can you 3D Print Clothes?
Well XYZ, an artist represented in the Shapeshifters Exhibition has certainly done that.
Blending traditional dressmaking techniques with digital technology, inBloom makes polylactic acid (PLA) function like textile. The open-source files of the dress are free to download, encouraging people to ‘hack’ the dress and make it their own.
