Drawing Freeform Metal Lines

The future of sculpture is 3d printing. You heard it here first šŸ˜‰

Runes in the Sand

Dutch designer Joris Laarman has developed a version of 3D printingĀ utilizing welding that also incorporates a robotic arm. The result is that he is able to print metal lines in mid-air without the need for any support structure.

Following on from the machine Laarman developed last year that used a quick-drying resin, this method of printing makes it possible to create 3D objects on any given surface independent of inclination and smoothness. The technique can be used to print with metals including stainless steel, aluminium, bronze or copper.
