Scholar Labs 3d-printing failures. Why not add your own in the comments?

3D-printing at FabLabs is still a young discipline and a craft, that is not too easy to master. There are lots and lots of tries to achieve the desired results with 3d-printing – including figure out parameters like temperature, speed, material, construction etc… (we at Dingfabrik Cologne can agree with that).

But why not turn around perception and see the mis-printings in a new light? Design Architect Jeremy Boggs in the Scholars’ Lab did this step and posted a series of failed printing. Is maybe this the beginning of a new direction of messing with 3d-printers? Some sort of “tangible glitch-art” emerging? (via)

  1. I like that positive thinking, but I don’t like failed 3D prints as art ;)

    I am really into glitch-art lately and this is a completely different approach. And I see parallels to this one. This could lead to something really new in the end!
