Designers, Makers, Users: 3D Printing the Future 

Exhibition On View from September 20, 2015 – January 10, 2016 at MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta)

3D printing technology and the open source communities surrounding it are rapidly changing the world by making the powerful, new tools of design and manufacturing available to a much wider audience. This accessibility ultimately allows each one of us to design customized solutions to the complex problems around us.

Designers, Makers, Users: 3D Printing the Future will explore projects, both large and small, in which 3D printing technology is being used in innovative ways. From fabricating lighter components for airplanes to designing custom prosthetics, this exhibition will explore the exciting designs made possible by 3D printing and the many questions that these technological advances will raise for our future.

The exhibition will include projects such as:

  • The Made in Space Zero-G 3D Printer that traveled to the International Space station in 2014
  • Nooka Watches and a FreshFiber Bubble Lamp by  3D Systems
  • Chase Me, a stop-motion film made entirely with 3D printed characters and sets
  • Design for 3D printing a lunar habitation on the moon by Foster + Partners
  • Kinematics Dress by Nervous System

Designers, Makers, Users: 3D Printing the Future is an original exhibition organized by the Museum of Design Atlanta with the support of 3D SystemsAdvanced RPEssdackDremel,  Formlabs, PaliProto, the Northside Hospital Foundation,  Fulton County Arts and Culture, and the City of Atlanta’s Office of Cultural Affairs
