From the Forums: Proteins and Prototypes
Winter is finally leaving (we hope) but we have one last snowflake for you by Sung Woo Choi. Check out Choi’s recent walkthrough on finishing a printed female figure, too.
Meanwhile in engineering-land, Paul Ingram prototyped a gearbox assembly in white resin before generating the toolpaths for CNC milling in aluminum.
Between battles with Puerto Rico’s humidity, Catherine Hajek has printed a family of ball-jointed dolls… some with scissor feet.
Casey Steffen, meanwhile, is making the microscopic world of protein structures fit into the palm of a hand with Biologic Models. He’s using his Form 1 to print models of proteins at 18 million times their real-life size, incorporating x-ray crystallography and 3D modeling in the creation of a manipulable model. His innovative techniques for dyeing and marking certain regions of the modeled enzymes are a topic for another post — stay tuned — but right now, check out the HbA1c campaign on RocketHub!
As always, let us know what you're up to in the forums — we love seeing what you're forming.
