Ceramic 3D Printer
Artist Jonathan Keep has put together a 3D printer to produce digital objects out of clay, and has put together a document to build one:
Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.
Looking at Jonathan’s website (in particular the ‘Digital Pots' section), you will see various series based on various ideas. There is the Random Growth of generative forms, Sound Surface based on musical audio data, and other computational methods.

The Midnight Planétarium by Van Cleef & Arpels
The movement of each planet is true to its genuine length of orbit: it will take Saturn over 29 years to make a complete circuit of the dial, Jupiter will take almost 12 years, Mars 687 days, Earth 365 days, Venus 224 days and Mercury 88 days.
Maxwell Ingham is a 20 year old Graphic Designer based in Canberra, Australia who posts his work under the name midgraph. A while ago, he began to feel unsatisfied with 2D print design so he began looking for a new and fulfilling artistic release. After seeing the works of Patakk and MrDiv, he fell in love with the experimentation possible in 3D animation that print design just doesn’t allow. Experimentation is the key to his art and the most fulfilling part of it. To him, the process is just as important as the final result.
