개인적으로 3D프린터에 관심이 많습니다. 건담과 같은 MS를 직접 만들어서 동작시켜보고싶거든요. MIT에서 렌더맨에서 영감을 얻어 프린팅속도를 개선하는 방법을 연구했나는겁니다.
아래 링크에 보시면, OpenFab에 대한 Paper를 PDF로 다운받아서 보실 수 있습니다. 꼭, 확인해보세요. 은퇴하면, PC방 차리지말고 3D프린트방 한번 차려봅시다.
OpenFab: A Programmable Pipeline for Multi-Material Fabrication Authors: Kiril Vidimce, Szu-Po Wang, Jonathan Ragan-Kelley and Wojciech Matusik, Massachusetts Institute of Technology CSAIL
This paper proposes a programmable pipeline, inspired by RenderMan, for synthesis of multi-material 3D printed objects. The pipeline introduces user-programmable fablets, a corollary to procedural shaders for 3D printing, and is designed to stream over arbitrary numbers of voxels with a fixed and controllable memory footprint.
다음은 bloter.net에 실린글입니다. 미국 메사추세츠 공과대학(MIT)이 3D 프린터를 대중화할 기술을 개발 중이다. 오픈소스 소프트웨어를 활용한 기술이다. 이름은 ‘오픈팹(OpenFab)’이다. MIT의 컴퓨터 과학 인공지능 연구소(CSAIL)가 오픈팹 기술을 오는 7월25일 시그래프 컴퓨터 그래픽 컨퍼런스에서 발표할 예정이다.
At this year's SIGGRAPH conference taking place in Los Angeles, Side Effects Software will carry on the 25th Anniversary festivities with a fantastic party happening a mere stone's throw away from the Los Angeles Convention Centre. On the trade show floor, our theatre styled booth will provide show-goers with an excellent way to learn more about Houdini straight from our very own experts as well as industry professionals. On the Trade Floor At our theatre booth, you can sit down and learn more about Houdini as well as how it has been leveraged in real-world projects ranging from film, commercial and video game productions. There will be a great variety of presentations delivered by Side Effects Software's own product specialists as well as from industry professionals. Stay tuned for more details on our booth's presentation schedule! Find us at Booth #528. 25 Year Celebration Come one, come all! With the Houdini community together at SIGGRAPH, this is the perfect time for us to celebrate our 25 year milestone with those who have made this anniversary possible. Come join in on the fun at the ESPN Zone in the L.A. Live complex, a close neighbor to Los Angeles Convention Center.
