dc.description.abstractThis study investigated the relationship between engineering and the creative arts through 3-D printing. 3-D printing was chosen, as it builds a fundamental bridge between engineering and the arts—often perceived as two separate entities. To investigate the disciplines’ compatibility, the 3D-modeling software Rhinoceros5 was used to render a painting of an imagined object into a 3-dimensional form. The object’s dimensions were appropriated for 3D printing. After realization of the object, further research was done to find possible applications. Comparing the creative and scientific processes showed that practical objects can trigger an inert curiosity. The development of the object showed that engineering sciences and art are crucial entities to improve present technologies with social responsibility.en_US
