3D Printing Technology Helps Disney Research Design Realistic Human Eye Model

There’s an old saying that the eyes are the “windows to the soul” because they are very individuated and play a big part in establishing our unique appearances. Not only are eyes highly individuated, but they can change too. Have you ever noticed that the color of your eyes can actually change based on lighting, your surroundings, and what color you are wearing? The human eye, as it turns out, is much more complicated an organ than many designers have been able to capture until now.

High-Quality Capture of Eyes

Link to project page and press release: http://www.disneyresearch.com/publication/high-quality-capture-of-eyes/

Even though the human eye is one of the central features of individual appearance, its shape has so far been mostly approximated in our community with gross simplifications. In this paper we demonstrate that there is a lot of individuality to every eye, a fact that common practices for 3D eye generation do not consider. To faithfully reproduce all the intricacies of the human eye we propose a novel capture system that is capable of accurately reconstructing all the visible parts of the eye: the white sclera, the transparent cornea and the non-rigidly deforming colored iris. These components exhibit very different appearance properties and thus we propose a hybrid reconstruction method that addresses them individually while respecting their inter-dependencies. The result of our system is a complete model of both spatio-temporal shape and texture at an unprecedented level of detail. The captured eyes will not only enable the creation of more believable digital humans but have potential applications in fields other than computer graphics, such as ophthalmology. Finally, we believe that the findings of this paper will alter our community’s current assumptions regarding human eyes, and our work has the potential to significantly impact the way that eyes will be modelled in the future.

Fraunhofer ILT Presents New Multispot SLM Machine Design

If there is one thing laser technology development is fundamentally important for it is selective laser melting (SLM) technology. That is why the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) partners with companies such as Concept Laser on research and testing for their new systems. Now the famed German institution is going one step further in presenting not just a new laser but a new, faster and more efficient, multispot SLM machine design.

voxeljet Introduces New Phenolic-Direct-Binding 3D Printing Method

voxeljet is one of the larger companies within the 3D printing space. They manufacture several industrial level, high-speed, large-format 3D printers, as well as offer on-demand printing of parts. Their 3D printers differ quite a bit from other technologies on the market today, as they utilize a powder binding method, relying on particulate materials (i.e. sand) and various chemical binding agents.

MIT Researchers Create Water-Based Robotic Fabrication Method for Natural Biodegradable 3D Printing

Although we have mentioned its benefits so many times in the past, while 3D printing is substantially cutting back on waste within the manufacturing industry, it’s actually creating hundreds of tons of waste annually within the consumer segment of the market. The majority of desktop 3D printers you will find in the homes of individuals rely primarily on thermoplastics, many of which negatively affect the environment in numerous ways.

3D Prints Smaller Than an Ant’s Forehead are Printed and Then Inevitably Lost

We’ve seen some absolutely amazing art over the past 6,000 years of human history, and, more recently, we’ve seen some incredible creations that were made using 3D printing and imaging techniques. But now it’s clear — some of the most impressive art is something we will never see. At least not with the naked eye. Or even a jeweler’s scope, or a microscope that can magnify 400x.
