Here are our staff favorite links from this week.   Once again we have articles from art and science sources.   We hope you enjoy them.


Solidsmack   Little robot figurines printed on Z-Corp printers.   The coolest part is the Web interface they have for building and customizing your own robot. - Alex


Endless Forms allows you to design shapes using artificial evolution.  The shapes are supposedly 3d printable from a downloaded file.   Note that the display works best with WebGL installed.   Try using the Google Chrome browser. - Evan


Miniature V12 engine at MAKEzine.com and nerdstink.com   This is the smallest working V12 engine in the world according to this article.  Very cool video shows the engine being assembled and then running. - Gregg


toxel.com   Very interesting skateboard art made from the laminated fragments of skateboard decks. - Brandon


Spray On Fabric Think of the possibilities.   (Looks a bit like Tyvec to me. - ed.) - Brandon

A color 3D model of a water-soluble peptide was made based on the crystallographic experimental coordinates (www.PDB.org).   The peptide model was ‘fine-tuned’ (color, scale & representation) in PyMol (www.pymol.org) before being converted to a VRML file format and 3D printed in NextFab Studio’s Z-Corp Spectrum Z510 3D printer. Tech Supervisor Derek Spence of NextFab has developed techniques which allow us to push the limits of the 3D printing process and successfully build models of this complexity.
