Columbia, SC (WLTX) - On Friday, Hammond Lower School students were able to see their two-dimensional artwork transformed into the third dimension, thanks to 3D printing technology.
Students painted pictures of the Hammond School mascot, Henry the Hawk, and then a company called DoodleSculpt was able to use 3D technology to make those paintings come to life by way of a sculpture.
This technology is already used for practical reasons byt the military, NASA and Boeing; however, John Carrington, Co-founder and CEO of DoodleSculpt, says the company is the first business to consumer 3D Print company in South Carolina.
"Right now we are at the very front edge of 3-D printing technology the same way the internet was in the early 90's," said Carrington. "I think you're going to see incredible advancement of this technology over the next five to ten years. It's truly a category unto itself... the same was the internet was."
DoodleSculpt will soon be expanding its presence throughout Columbia, Charleston and Charlotte.
