Shapeways Partners with the Museum of Arts & Design for a 3D Printing Experience

Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) is the first in-depth museum survey dedicated to exploring the impact of computer-assisted methods of production on contemporary art, architecture, and design. Shapeways is partnering with MAD for the exhibition and will host ‘OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON,’ an educational and interactive space on the Museum’s second floor where visitors will be able to experience 3D design and printing firsthand.

Opening in conjunction with the exhibition curated by Ron Labaco on October 16th and running through April 2014, the ‘OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON’ space will include a series of interactive 3D apps for visitors to create their own 3D models, on site 3D scanning, and 3D printing in a range of materials. Shapeways’ ‘Designers in Residence’ working in the gallery will also be available to demonstrate 3D modeling techniques and tools used to create objects like those in the exhibition.
