KICKING OFF THE SCHOOL YEAR – A LOOK BACK – HUMBER COLLEGE 2013 THESIS SHOW

Kicking off the school year is never easy. It is often tough to find motivation in the early classes, long lectures, and lack of sleep. We thought it would be a great opportunity to look back at a group of students that have truly pushed the envelope on their past year, to provide a little motivation to those students looking for a finish line. Over the last few months our team here at Objex Unlimited has been thrilled to be working with a wide range of extremely talented clients. With this said, there is nothing like the Humber College Thesis Show. Showcasing students from the Bachelor of Applied Technology (Industrial Design) degree program, this annual show is an outstanding display of talented, and innovative designers. Amongst their hours of research, design, and engineering work, these students are required to present accurate, and realistic concept display models. Working in conjunction with Objex Unlimited, a great deal of these students were able to accurately replicate their prototypes and design models. This was a fantastic experience for both the students and our team here at Objex Unlimited – to be able to provide these talented students with the resources they need to continue to evolve and innovate their designs.

During the show we had the opportunity to award two of these outstanding designers with the “best hard models in show”. Both Brent Vanderwoude and Jacob Migneault took home the prize.

FAN EXPO 2013

It will be interesting to see all of the outstanding talent showcased at this years Fan Expo. We are looking forward to seeing an array of 3D printed props, and accessories to compliment the many Cosplay enthusiasts.

FAN EXPO CANADA is located at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North and South Buildings this weekend, and for over 90,000+ fans, is home to the “3rd largest pop culture event in North America”. With some of the most outstanding exhibitors and celebrity guests – it’s an event that you wont want to miss. Like many technologies, the creative minds of sci-fi writers, directors, and artist have helped drive and conceptualize the realm of 3D printing. Today we see many of these creative minds utilizing this technology when there is no other alternative for creating part, props, and models.
We took this opportunity to create our own 3D printed action figure to add a touch of Fan Expo to our studio. Check It Out!

Will UPS succeed with their in store 3D printing services?

Are you a small business owner that utilizes 3D printing or is interested in doing so?

You may be interested in hearing about UPS’s new pilot 3D printing services.

UPS plans to first introduce these services in locations around the San Diego-area, “UPS says it’s offering 3D printing so companies can quickly and inexpensively create models and prototypes of items they plan to produce”. Mashable.com explains in their blog and video below.  

“Start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners may not have the capital to purchase a 3D printer on their own, but they may have a need to show prototypes to their current and potential customers,” Michelle Van Slyke (vice-president of small-business solutions and marketing, @ The UPS Store) said in a release. “By offering 3D printing capabilities in-center, we’re able to help further our small business customers’ opportunities for success.” keep reading…

 

Do you think UPS will succeed with their in store 3D printing services? Staples has already launched their small business and consumer pilot project in the UK; but how about UPS in the U.S.? It will be interesting to see how their services pan out, until then – be sure to give Objex Unlimited a call for all of your small business 3D printing and scanning needs.
