I'm proud to announce our brand new Education Blog on this site. Simply flip the 'education' tab at the top of this page and you will see our first dedicated education blog post. This blog is designed to show how educators, students and researchers are using Objet's 3D printing technology to advance their fields of study in academic disciplines such as design, architecture, mechanical and industrial engineering, bio/medical engineering, medicine and aerospace. Every week we will be brining you new stories written by our very own students, researchers and faculty staff.
Now let's introduce you to our new education bloggers who have been using the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer to create the amazing models for their first blog post '3D Printing Material Distributions' (here's an example - a single model 3D printed in Clear Transparent & Rigid White materials - just to get you excited!)
Andrew Payne is a registered architect who is currently pursuing his doctoral degree at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. Andrew received his Masters of Architecture from Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation in May of 2005. Prior to that, he studied architecture at Clemson University where he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in 2002. Andrew’s work explores embedded computation and parametric design and he has lectured and taught workshops throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Panagiotis Michalatos is an architect and lecturer in architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He holds an MSc in applied IT from Chalmers Technical University in Sweden. Between 2006 and 2010 he worked as a computational design researcher for the London based structural engineering firm AKT. While in AKT along with colleague Sawako Kaijima they provided consultancy and developed computational solutions for a range of high profile projects by architecture practices such as ZHA, Thomas Heatherwick, Fosters and partners, Future systems and others. Panagioti's work in interaction design and digital media has resulted in a long lasting collaboration with Stockholm based contemporary dance company CCAP, most recently for the performance "cut-outs and trees" that was shown in Venice dance Biennale in 2010.
