Escher for Real The Belvedere, Waterfall, Necker Cube, Penrose Triangle 3D Printing from TechnionBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
Many people are familiar with the work of M.C. Escher. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusions artwork presents to the layman’s eye. Many of the so-called ‘impossible’ drawings of M. C. Escher can be realized as actual physical objects, Prof. Gershon Elber of Technion’s Faculty of Computer Science has done just this. His research team has developed a unique CAD application for designing “impossible” 3D objects, with the 3D printer in Technion’s Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning The Belvedere comes to life in a 3D model.
