Watch Movie showing how art pieces are created on the Objet 3D printer!
Rehovot, Israel, May 30, 2012 – Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, today announced it is cooperating with world-leading consumer products company Keter Plastic Ltd to create an exhibit of 3D-printed art pieces as part of an innovative project to highlight young designers’ talents and support at-risk youth.

For the project, 70 art pieces were designed by d-Vision, the design internship program of Keter Plastic and then 3D printed by Objet. The art pieces will be exhibited at the Holon Design Museum, one of the leading museums for design and contemporary culture, on May 30th. The art pieces will be auctioned at a special gala event to benefit ELEM and ‘Mifalot Chinuch Chevra’, both non-profit organizations that seek to help at-risk youth.
The designers at d-Vision developed their concepts in 3D CAD software and then 3D printed them on Objet’s 3D printers. Created in rigid opaque materials, Objet’s high resolution 3D printers were able to precisely create real-life 3D renditions of the designs – creating true works of art.

This project brings together many elements that are central to d-Vision: outstanding design and art, advanced technology, and commitment to our community,” said Professor Ezri Tarazi, head of the d-Vision program. “We were delighted to see how our young designers’ artistic ideas turned into spectacular reality through the high-quality 3D printing capabilities of Objet. We are looking forward to seeing how our combined efforts will eventually help make a difference in young people’s lives, through the money raised by auctioning the art pieces for ELEM and Mifalot Chinuch.”
Commenting on the project, David Reis, CEO for Objet said: “We are delighted to be participating in this very prestigious design project and proud to be contributing to the commendable work of ELEM and Mifalot Chinuch in working to ensure a better future for our youth. By pairing d-Vision’s innovative and artistic designs with Objet’s advanced 3D printing technology, we have created a powerful platform to expand the boundaries of art and design while contributing to the betterment of the community.”
