“A Piece of Clothing That’s an Extension of the Skin”
“Caress OF THE GAZE” is the name of this piece of clothing created by the designer Behnaz Farahi. It’s not only an eyecatcher —it also reacts to the observer’s gaze. That’s because a tiny eye-track camera inside it records the observer’s angle of vision and aligns the spiky fibers accordingly. The fibers, which were made via 3D printing, are sure to pique people’s curiosity

“The World’s Smallest 3D Ballpoint Pen”
The LIX PEN looks like a pencil, but it’s actually a miniature 3D printer. The plastic that is melted
inside it cools off and hardens as soon as it leaves the pen. In the future, artists can use the Lix pen to “draw” three-dimensional works in space

“The Bridge Embodies the Endless Potential of 3D Printing”
THE PRINTING ROBOTS of the Dutch startup MX3D have successfully built the world’s first bridge via 3D printing in only six months. Starting in 2019, this steel construction, which weighs 4,500 kilograms, will span a gracht in Amsterdam —a symbol of technical progress in one of Europe’s most popular historical city centers

“A Revolution in Architecture”
MASSIMILIANO LOCATELLI wants to get people excited about houses made by a 3D printer. At this year’s Design Week in Milan, the Italian architect used his time constructively. He had an assembly robot additively manufacture a complete house —thus demonstrating that the future of construction has already arrived

Layer by Layer
The Belgians who work at Materialise are pioneers in their sector. Polyamide 12 is giving shape to their vision of the 3D printing of the future.
Lighter than steel, flexible, and corrosion-resistant: three reasons for the success of polyamide 12, underground and in your car.
From Gas Pipe to Sport Shoe
One basic substance, countless applications— additives give polyamide 12 the attributes it needs for a variety of purposes.
