Velocity Painting

Recommended Posts

Came across this great development by Mark Wheadon who makes beautiful prints with his idea to combine a pattern and print speed. His idea was made into an app by Guillaume and is easy to use. Find more about this here and support these guys!

A video tutorial can be found

The idea is that you take a good black and white picture (white is fast, black is slow) and use one of the projections (x-y-z-cylinder-sphere) on an already sliced gcode. The viewer on the site makes it easy to see the result.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
