If you’re deep into your visualisation game, chances are you’ll have heard of HDR Light Studio, which has just announced its latest Tungsten update.

For those that are using Physically-Based Rendering (PBR) systems, it has become a tool of choice to help with both tweaking existing HDR environment images (which the PBR systems use to generate their lighting conditions) as well as to create new environments from scratch.

Over the years (it’s now 10 years old), the system has grown in capability as well as integration with other visualisation tools.

HP has made a raft of announcements around its 3D printing offerings, this time focussing on the industrial end of the spectrum – particularly interesting for organisations looking for a means of cost-effective additive manufacturing of polymer parts.

First, there’s a new advanced set of hardware in the form of the HP Jet Fusion 5200, which looks to bring together everything needed from the hardware side (in terms of build and post processing) along with some interesting software aspects. HP’s goal is to enable customers to ramp up their 3D production and target business growth.

It’s looking to accomplish this with high-quality parts and optimal yield of parts on an ‘industrial scale’.

Fashion, that most stubborn of 2D design industries, has relented somewhat to include digital design and fabrication methods for this year’s Met Ball - the most globally gossiped about celebrity frock fest.

Most notably taking advantage of 3D printing and scanning were dresses and accoutrements by American designer Zac Posen, who dressed British supermodel Jourdan Dunn, actresses Nina Dobrev, Katie Holmes, Julia Garner and Bollywood icon, Deepika Padukone.

The garments and accessories differed from full rose petal dresses to delicate cufflinks - with the production and materials blending with traditional fabrics and dressmaking to blend (rather than the typical ‘statement’ 3D printed piece usually consisting of a geometric shape, built of Nylon and plonked on someone’s head for the sake of it).
