3D Printing has opened up a whole new world for architecture. Technology that was once restricted to fabrication labs is now available to the end user – and at an affordable price. Of course, this new technology has also created the necessity to easily share 3D data over the web.
With this in mind, we partnered with Gigabot – the biggest, most affordable 3D printer (it can print models up to 60x60x60cm) – and with Sketchfab, a new platform that is bridging the gap between the 3D models on your desktop and on the web.
We invited our readers to model their favorite architectural classic, and today we are announcing the two winners who will recive a real-life physical model, printed with the Gigabot.
The Gigabot team chose the Villa Savoye modeled by by Luiza Lense as their pick, and our readers also voted this model as the most popular. According to the rules, the People's Choice goes to the second most voted model: the Lotus Temple by Elijah Wood. We will document the printing process to show you how they go from bits to atoms!
Thanks to everyone who submitted their 3D Models. You can see all the submissions in our 3D Printing Challenge page.
