La révolution de l'architecture imprimée

La révolution de l'architecture imprimée | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

L'impression 3D permet beaucoup de choses : prototypage rapide, personnalisation des produits, reproduction instantanée des objets, etc. Mais chaque jour, on trouve de nouvelles applications inouïes. L’architecte computationnel Michael Hansmeyer lui emploie les imprimantes 3D pour faire de l'art, plus précisément il construit des colonnes ornementales ou des pièces aux géométries complexes jamais vues auparavant. De nouveaux algorithmes lui permettent de créer des objets inimaginables aux innombrables facettes, impossibles à réaliser à la main.
