Colony: beautiful 3D prints, reminiscent of marine life-forms

Spotted today in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool: these dazzling 3D-printed forms, created and photographed by Boing Boing reader Jessica Rosenkrantz of Nervous System, "an experimental design studio that uses new technologies to reinterpret natural phenomena."

These images show test prints for a new project Jessica is working on. "Each print is 4 to 6 inches," she explains. "Meshes generated by Processing. 3d-printed by Shapeways." Here's her shop, and here's her website. More images in her Flickr set.

If these are tests, I can't wait to see the final product.


  1. Squee!!!!! Oh, my… those are amazing!!!!! Although I would love them even more if they were made in some soft rubbery material so that they could be squeezed. They just beg to be squeezed!
