Laurie Anderson Collaborates with MakerBot!

Laurie Anderson joins the growing roster of artists creating original work on a MakerBot, with her latest exhibit, “Forty-Nine Days in the Bardo.” The multimedia exhibition is running now through November 19th at the Fabric Workshop & Museum in Philadelphia.

The team at MakerBot performed a 3D scan on a clay model of Laurie Anderson’s dog Lola, creating a virtual 3D object.  From this object, we printed out over 20 plastic models of the scan. The pack of plastic dogs is currently on display in the museum’s lobby, alongside a Thing-O-Matic.

3D Printing is for the birds

Apple Skewer for Birdcages 1.0

3D Printing is for the birds

Karsten needed something to hold his apple pieces to his bird cage and Thingiverse citizen webghost was ready with his 3D printer to help out.  Now Karsten does not need to evolve and webghost is a MakerBot hero!

The distribution of animal assistance devices on Thingiverse is quite interesting:

  1. Apple slice holder by webghost
  2. Birdfeeder by araspitfire
  3. Automatic dog feeder by 2robotguy
  4. Automatic cat feeder by damonkohler
  5. Cat food ball by mirk
  6. Cat toy by flintols
  7. Cat food divider by shutterbug
  8. Cat waste scooper by gadgetguydk
  9. Ferret hammock bracket by chooch
  10. Pet treat dispenser (for cats) by ScribbleJ
  11. Hamster food dish by smwombat

For those keeping score at home, that’s six for cats, two for birds, one for dogs, one for ferrets, and one for hamsters.  What’s your explanation for this distribution?
