Art and design have certainly benefited from the 3D printing world and its liberating capabilities. Artists with 3D printers have been producing some unique geometries, seemingly “impossible” shapes, and unprecedented combinations of color and materials for many years. The release of the new Stratasys J750 multicolor3D printer has opened up even more new doors in the artistic worlds. In this blog article we will showcase the work of one ground-breaking 3D artist named Jose Sanchez.
“Polyomino” is the final stage of a two-year professional collaboration between Stratasys and Jose Sanchez, an architect, programmer and video game designer. This shape-shifting 3D printed structure can be reconfigured using magnets and recalls the building ethos of classic video games like Tetris. With more than 360,000 colors available for use on the Stratasys J750 3D Printer, Sanchez was able to allow the color to be the lead element of the piece.
