Joining a flea market in Oi Racetrack (March 13, 2016)

Dasyn.com will join a flea market held in Oi Racetrack on March 13. This flea market is the largest one in Tokyo and opens every Saturday and Sunday. Dasyn.com will sell 3D-printed light globes, LED pendants with 3D-printed a shade, and other 3D-printed objects, such as dishes and spheres.

A talk on procedural 3D printing (February 28, 2016)

Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn.com, presented a talk titled “3D Printing by Using a Programming Language with Procedural Abstraction Function” (in Japanese) in IPSJ SIG Programming. This presentation proposes a method for generating G-code by describing an abstract Python program using a library for procedural 3D-design and for printing by a 3D printer, and shows use cases.

Talk and exhibition in Generative Art 2015 (December 5, 2015)

IMG_1232S.jpgYasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn.com, presented a talk titled “Designing 3D-Printable Generative Art by 3D Turtle Graphics and Assembly-and-Deformation” and exhibition in Generative Art 2015 (GA 2015), which was held in Venice in December 9 to 11, 2015. GA 2015 is an international conference for artists, engineers, and other types of specialists who are interested in generative art. He showed products created by using new 3D design and printing methods, including light, transparent, and brilliant globes, plates, cups, and LED shades.

A presentation on texture-mapping on 3D-printed surfaces (October 18, 2015)

P1311432cX.jpg A presentation focused on a method for mapping a bitmap on the surface of 3D-printed objects will be given in a conference called the 8th International Conference on Leading Edge Manufacturing in 21st Century (LEM21). Thin and seamless objects with pictures, characters, or other textures can be created by this method. Several examples including transparent, thin, light, but strong globes and 3D calendars were created.

Two presentations on directed and procedural 3D design and printing will be given in JSME Convention (August 29, 2015)

Two presentations (in Japanese) on the new type of 3D design and printing will be given in the annual convention of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers on September 14. The first presentation is on a procedural design method for industrial products. The second presentation is on direction-specified 3D design and printing methods.

A directed-3D-printing paper was presented in the SFF Symposium (August 12, 2015)

The paper titled “Support-less Horizontal Filament-stacking by Layer-less FDM”, which was accepted for the SFF Symposium was presented in the afternoon on August 12. The session title is “Process Development VIII: New and Hybrid Process”. This paper describes a method for printing a thin, light, and brilliant objects, such as globe or heart-shaped dish without support material.

Papers on 3D printing with natural direction, 3D turtle graphics, and bitmapped pictures/characters have been published/accepted (August 7, 2015)

A paper on natural-direction 3D-printing, which had been originally presented at the Solid Free-form Fabrication Symposium (SFF) 2013, was published. Another paper on hacked conventional 3D printing was also published. Both were published by the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (WASET). A paper on 3D turtle graphics, which was originally presented and published in Japanese, has been published in English by the International Journal of Engineering Research and Applications (IJERA). A paper on creating thin objects with bit-mapped pictures/characters, which has been used for printing globes, was accepted for a conference called the 8th International Conference on Leading Edge Manufacturing in 21st Century (LEM21). WASET is an NPO that organizes many technical conferences and that publishes many open-access papers at no cost. IJERA is a publisher of open-access papers at low cost. LEM21 is a conference organized by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME).

Two papers have been accepted for an on-line journal and a conference (April 20, 2015)
