Urban cycling is blooming. The two-wheeled monsters are reclaiming city streets and that’s good news for the planet, for our own health and the bank account. Yet, every cyclist has his own style, habits and needs, while urban bikes can’t always meet them. We’re way passed that evolutionary stage when one-size-fits-all. So, that’s where 3D printing comes in.

We know that 3D modelling is an arduous process, requiring extreme attention to detail and creativity. It might be draining sometimes, too. So we're offering you an opportunity to break away from your work and draw inspiration from some of the most extraordinary movie characters that were brought to life with the help of technology. Everything about these CG-generated movie characters is so convincing, it makes us wonder what wizardry stuff this level of CG will deliver in the future.
Can you match the level of expertise? We’d love to see your work!

Don’t we all love a good look? Adding a classy touch to your personality with custom made pieces of jewellery or translating your own ideas into fabulous jewellery designs is no longer a case of being extra rich. Extra rich in creativity is all you need to be – 3D printing will do the rest. Haven’t got a single clue what we’re on about? Here are some of the earth-shattering, inspirational ideas we collected.
[We are currently running a 3D-printed Jewellery Challenge, test your skills and win amazing prizes.]

When we asked you to be brave and trade your craziest ideas for outstanding 3D-printed creations, we didn’t quite expect people to come back with gun and tank images. But then again, who are we to judge your dreams? This week, however, we focused on the top 10 funkiest ideas submitted for Flat is Boring inspirational challenge. Make yourself comfortable while you’re being transported to a world of eccentric minds.

Technology has turned the world upside down. It facilitates daily lives and substitutes our perception of the reality. The things that years ago seemed to be impossible suddenly became a constant. In 1936 BBC began transmitting the world's first public regular hi-definition service, in 1950 television was recognized as the main medium for molding public opinion, afterwards it has become a must-have domestic appliance and did not leave this position for a quite long time.
Back then people were thinking that technologists achieved a lot and there is nowhere to move forward. Then the internet came to shake the whole world. Most companies cannot work these days if the office loses internet connection. Technology is still improving. Where the hell it can go further? Today 3D printers are commercially available in the market. Do you need a detail for the household? Would you like to get a unique wedding ring? Do you have a genius idea of cheap prosthesis production? Just create or download a 3D model and print it out!
Until you get used to it, it is always immensely hard to believe. Even when you start believing, you are not sure: is it real or fake? It is actually both. Computer graphic artists are up to completely blow our minds. Instead of going to the city streets and capturing cityscapes, landscapes or portraits with professional cameras, they decide to generate the same image, using 3D design software. And hurrah! Guess, they say, is it real or fake? We keep guessing, while surfing all around the virtual world. Damn,sometimes you sit for 5 minutes and: 1) Ask yourself if is it a photo-shot or a trick by a CG artist; 2) Try to convince yourself that technology can do that; 3) Come back to the idea that it must be a photo-shot, because computer is not that clever to restore the reality in digital; 4) You give up.
So, half a year has passed by and we have a second part of The Most Photorealistic 3D Renderings. Do not torture yourself thinking. I tell you, all of them are purely fake. There is no a single photograph or a photographical background at least. Every single detail in these renderings is generated by madly talented 3D artists. Enjoy and let the flow of inspiration grab you.
