Through the potential of 3D printing technologies, and Formero ’s Objet 3D technology, sculpture artist, Maria Fernanda Cardoso showcases a collection of miniature sculptures, electromicroscopic photographs and digital drawings of the reproductive organs of various insects, spiders and other creepy-crawlies.
These microsculptures, using Formero’s Objet 3D printing technology, have been described as complex and intricate organic and formally beautiful objects, a technological, scientific and artistic feat presented for the first time to the public to admire.
A company specialising in rapid prototyping and custom manufacturing, Formero has dominated the rapid prototyping industry in Australia. Formero where the first to introduce Object’s 3D printing using PolyJet matrix technology, enabling the printing of parts with physical and mechanical properties previously unreachable. This technology was perfect for recreating the incredible shapes, intricate details and complex geometries of the various species Maria exhibited.
