It seems as though 3D printing surfaced out of thin air, just as its creations appear to be, and now it is taking over the material world. Just check out the Goncalo Campos Camion collection. It features jewelry that I would be proud to wear, but I can't believe that it was, well, printed.
With pieces made out of steel, the Goncalo Campos Camion collection seems dainty due to its faceted, cut-out designs. Yet, there's a reason Superman is compared to the strength of steel. Embracing the marks on the surface of the jewelry made by the printing process (see close-up image), Core77 predicts that this roughness will become more prevalent as 3D printing does as well.
