3D Printable Type
I know there are designers working on typefaces that are optimised for 3D printing but this alphabet, by Loren Kulesus of Brooklyn, is something else entirely.

“The design uses 1mm wall thicknesses which seem to print very nicely on all 3d printers, and the simple and iterative appearance mimics heat sinks.”

Look at that ‘o’ made by joining two blocks! Very imaginative. typeworship:

Kinematics turns any 3D shape into a foldable form for 3D printing.
Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. Each component is rigid, but in aggregate they behave as a continuous fabric. Though made of many distinct pieces, these designs require no assembly. Instead the hinge mechanisms are 3D printed in-place and work straight out of the machine.
You can make and order (or print!) your own designs using the Kinematics app.

I found this article through VCU libraries and it gives a full detailed description of 3D printing that will help me in my research process.

" A large portion of the 3D printing community is within the open source world, while the rest is commercially oriented. Conflicts have occurred, but now there could be a way to reduce them. 

The Defensive Patent License is an initiative to develop an open source license that is intended to prevent patent trolling and encourage innovation. Here’s how it works, according to the organizers: 

Innovators who opt into the DPL network pledge to forgo any patent litigation against any other DPL user, except when asserting patents defensively. In return, they are eligible to receive royalty-free licenses from every other user’s portfolio. Anyone taking a license must promise to put all of her patents under the DPL. In the event that the patents are sold, DPL users must legally obligate the new owner to abide by prior DPLs. If one ceases offering one’s patents under the DPL, previous licensees keep their DPLs royalty-free, but the leaving user may have her licenses converted from royalty-free to fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory terms (FRAND) at the discretion of the remaining licensors.”

"Local Motors launches Design Challenge for first 3D-printed car

"Historically, producing a new vehicle from a new design has represented a significant investment in tooling and a large commitment in time to integrate multiple structures and components," said Jay Rogers, Local Motors CEO. “This effort to design and deliver the first co-created vehicle using this digital technology and manufacturing process could change the process and speed in which vehicles are designed and built.”

Local Motors is inviting designers to design your vision of the Local Motors 3D printed car, which must seat 2 people, include 4 wheels and battery pack, have windshield / wind deflector, and must embed the major elements and functions of the exterior, the structure, and the interior in one main printed part. Designers are required to submit three distinct views of their project (side, ¾ front and ¾ rear), one mise-en-scene view and a description of the benefits and innovations associated with the concept.

Submissions to the Local Motors 3D-Printed Car Design Challenge will be voted on by the Local Motors Community on localmotors.com, and judged by an independent panel of experts led by Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot and Local Motors Board Member.”
