Lowering the 8-foot-tall Gigante 3D printer - Kevin Caron

Lowering the 8-foot-tall Gigante 3D printer

As an artist who works three dimensions and often designs in CAD (Computer Aided Design), I was immediately fascinated by the opportunities afforded by 3D printing.

This new technology offers much promise for creating not only original art, such as my 5-1/2-foot-tall sculpture Epic Swoon, but also maquettes, or small models, to show patrons for commissions.

This article will tell you more about how I got involved in 3D printing and how it influences my artistic practice.
