Rapidly gaining popular attention, 3D printing is viewed as the next life changing
technology. This book explains how the creative industries are directly interfacing with this
new technology and how it is changing the practices of many artists and designers across
the globe. A selection of case studies of leading practitioners in their respective disciplines
reveals this fascinating process in action.

The book also introduces the groundbreaking research by Stephen Hoskins and his 3D
team at the Centre for Fine Print Research, world leaders in the development of
techniques for 3D printing in ceramics, and includes a history of 3D printing, from its
origins in aerospace to its current, diverse applications in bio-medics and Formula One
racing, through to furniture design and jewellery.

A fascinating investigation into how the applied arts continue to adapt to new technologies,
this book is for academics and 3D print users from both the arts and science backgrounds,
as well as artists, designers, those in creative industries and anyone who has an interest
in new technological developments.
