Another Designer Con has passed on by and as always, it was a fun and amazing event! Designer Con is an annual art and design convention that focuses on designer toys, custom art and designer goods. 

This year Mold3D proudly sponsored the Designer Con event! We also hosted a booth, and produced the "Design & Technology Zone", complete with VR sculpting, 3D sculpting demos from many talented artists, 3D Printing and a 3D Printing gallery.

For the interactive zone, we teamed up with Formlabs and Oculus Medium who supported us in making this an amazing experience. 

Check out some of the highlights from the show below!


Our interactive zone had some of the coolest digital toys on display! The goal was to showcase cutting edge technology that artists can use today to create amazing products of their own.

Oculus showcased their cutting edge VR sculpting app, "Meduim". A powerful sculpting tool in its own right, Oculus Meduim shows us the promise of VR as a legit and powerful creative tool for artists.

On display was also the latest 3D Printing technology from Formlabs. Their latest 3D printer, the Form2 was in action printing out artwork throughout the weekend.

Guests also enjoyed ZBrush sculpting demos by 3D modeling professionals. Featured artists included: Dylen Ekren, Daniel De Leon, Paulette Emerson, Brian Jeffcoat, Chad Dusenbery, Victor Latour, Tommy Keiser, Aiman Akhtar, Ara Kermankikian and Niles Smith.

3D modeler and 3D print artist Christina Douk had an impressive display of custom 3D printed and casted figurines for sale.
