The University of Texas at El Paso is at the forefront of emerging 3D printing technologies. Several UTEP students and faculty involved in this work recently collaborated with a pair of architects who were featured in The New York Times.
The article, written by Patricia Leigh Brown, describes Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello’s unconventional 3D printing methods, which include using items such as mud, dirt, nutshells and coffee grounds.
The architects teamed up with UTEP students to print sculptures made with locally harvested and processed clay. The artwork is currently on display at the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts.
