Additive Manufacturing bridge between professional training and arts

Share this post

Last Friday was a significant day for our group. Beyond the usual work we found ourselves in two events which are distant both geographically and content but still interesting for our professional and personal growth. A party of our staff held a seminar together with other speakers at the order of Chieti engineers focused on scenarios that 3D printing has opened for the professional in question, and another party attended the presentation at La Feltrinelli of Pescara catalogue the “Back Side of the Blind Spot” by the artist Luciano Sozio.

The workshop which was held in Lanciano had a technique imprint, concentrated in the first part on the teaching of the additive manufacturing process, the basics and innovative concepts in the sphere of mechanical engineering, “forced” to migrate to 3D to remain pace with new technologies, new languages ​​and production processes. With great interest, believing strongly in the training we have embraced the project of the order of Chieti engineers want to share our technical know-how with the audience to give an idea as widely as possible of additive manufacturing world. Our technical manager explained to about 130 professionals design characteristics and practical application examples of the most popular rapid prototyping technologies additive comparing with the oldest subtractive rapid prototyping (CNC machining) to let out the pros and cons of each, then concluding that there is the best rapid prototyping technology at all, but there is the best rapid prototyping technology to the client’s specific needs.


The “Back Side of the Blind Spot” is an art project by Luciano Sozio, curious artist and a “man of the world” as he calls Serena Ribaudo in his preface, driven by the desire to make discoveries. Probably the meaning of the title of his exhibition at the Pandone Castle in Venafro is really to investigate the existence of blind corner, what each of us is to live but on which no one really dwells on. A further special feature of the exhibition, that involved us in person, was the creation of a path in the dark designed specifically to allow everyone, blind and sighted people to approach art and touch it. Seven three-dimensional works made with Stereolithography were tactile surveyed visitors who have not discovered the simple reproductions of the artist, but works specially designed to be understood by anyone with the view in the dark. Testimonies of visitors are intense and devoted words of awe and emotional involvement to this “3D” experience, but in the dark.


Again we are far from the world of 3D mechanical design which generally surrounds us, but we immediately supported the project by Luciano Sozio because we truly believe that additive manufacturing will find, in the “simple” or “perfect” future, space in all fields of knowledge
