Chat with 3D printing enthusiast Kees Kamper
As we look down on Friday and ways to relax, we've took a little time off to speak with 3D printing designer Kees Kamper. Check out what he had to say on 3D printing modelers' life. Oh, and Kees definitely has made some very nice work!
Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into the 3D printing industry?
For fun, I designed and published Amsterdam canal houses on Google Earth. I liked it and started building lights. In October 2013 one of my models got the 3Design Award at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. With the award came a Leapfrog Creatr 3D printer and that’s when the real fun began...
What are the most important characteristics to become a recognized artist according to you?
What research methods do you have?
Brainpower searching the internet.
What 3D Printer/Printers do you prefer?
I like my Leapfrog!
How would you best describe your projects in four words?
Pushing limits in 3D-printing.
What makes 3D printing attractive to you?
When you design and print you only need four square meters to produce things.
How do you take a break from work? What are your hobbies?
No time to lose when you’re a designer and a printer at the same time.
Are there any future projects you can tell us about?
Free light for everyone: solar energy transformed into 12 volt, stored in batteries, feeding LED lights in 3D printed LED holders.
Tell us what you think!
