3ders.org - Synthesis Design & Stratasys create multi-material and multi-color 3D printed rocking chair | 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News | e-merging Knowledge | Scoop.it
Although there have been a wide variety of conceptual products that use 3D printing as a final method of manufacturing, the stakes have been pushed higher over the last couple of years to really push rapid prototyping into a rapid manufacturing stage whose aesthetic and functional qualities are embedded within the aesthetics of the final piece - something that is rarely ever done with traditional manufacturing techniques. One recent example of how 3D printing has been used other than to create a prototype or otherwise 'typical' 3D printed object comes from LA-based Synthesis Design + Architecture (SDA).
