It’s time for a new episode of the 3D Printing Society Podcast. This week, I interview Joshua Harker, artist extraordinaire who has been one of the first to use 3D printing for bringing sculptures to the world.
He is a designer and an artist, has been featured in many publications and still holds the record for most-funded sculpture on Kickstarter. His work with 3D printing emphasizes complex and kinetic shapes.
