3D printing - the craft of the 21st century
kM 79 edition is about 3D printing, two of my articles and seven interviews with i.e. jewellery maker Ted Noten (guns and women), Jantje Fleischhut (the emotion of plastic) and designers Minela/Maeda (modular ceramic tableware) describe their specific approach towards 3D printing.

3D printing - the craft of the 21st century
Four interviews with jewellery makers and designers about their approach to 3D printing.
The relationship between craft and 3D printing is being discussed with Ted Noten, who uses 3D printing since several years and three new comers in this field. How userfriendly is the software ? What materials are available ? What is the CO2 footprint ? How is authenticity defined in this context and what is the thin line with massproduction ?
‘The flexibility of nylon’, ‘the emotion of plastic’, ‘a passion for guns and women’ and ‘digital tactility’ are the subtitles of the article.
3000 words in Dutch, to be published in kM 79 in september 2011

CAD/CAM and ceramics - sundaymorning@ekwc
(=formerly known as European Ceramic Workcentre in Den Bosch)
The Ceramic workcentre has a CAD/CAM studio with 3D printers and digital cutting machines which supplement their expertise with new tools. An interview with the coordinator of the studio, a sculptor and two designers about research and production during their three months’ artist in residency period. The use of digital tools leads to the evolution of a new postmodernist language in design and autonomous art. The adaptation of 3D printed models and moulds to ceramic processes has pitfalls, is challenging and yields new insights and elegant work. However - Rapid Prototyping is not as rapid as it seems.
