ilmed at the 3D PrintShow in NY, this interview with Dr. Michaella Janse van Vuuren debuts her unique "Garden of Eden" fashion collection which she created using the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer from Stratasys. http://ow.ly/uxYVU
Produced in one print run, these pieces combines flexible, rigid and transparent materials - plus some of the brightest, most dramatic colors you've ever seen from a 3D printer.
In this brief clip, Michaella discusses her inspiration for the pieces and also what it is like to create with 3D printing. You'll also see one of the pieces actually being 3D printed.
If you want an insight into the creative mind of someone who is pushing the boundaries of design with Stratasys 3D color, multi-material printing, this video is for you.

This is the story of Not Impossible Labs founder Mick Ebeling. After reading about a boy named Daniel who lost both his arms during the civil war in South Sudan, Mick turned to technology to help. He traveled to Africa armed with 3D printers, Intel 2-in-1s and spools of plastic and, with Intel's help, established the world's first 3D prosthetic printing lab in Daniel's village #lookinside

Stu Grover is a technologist and entrepreneur. Whilst sitting in a post grad class at the International Space University in early 2012 Stu Grover was first introduced to the idea that replacement parts could be "printed" on demand in Zero G. As a technologist and entrepreneur this concept fascinated him and he simply had to find out more. Two years on he is the owner and founder of 3D Printing Studios which is a network of high street shops setup to increase awareness of 3D Printing amongst everyday people. Stu sees a future in which 3D Printing is as much a part of our lives as computers are today but not quite so intimate.
