How to design a 3D painting with 3D glasses
Posted May 05, 2018 04:24:56 It’s time to finally have a 3-D portrait, right?
It’s almost a rite of passage for artists, and with 3-d printing becoming a major tool for the art market, it might be the only way to get a great look at an object in person.
3D artist Tony Cunha decided to take it a step further by creating an art installation with a camera and a 3d printer.
“A lot of people are really interested in 3D printing and 3D rendering,” Cunas creator tells Fast Company.
“It’s really cool to see that there’s a lot of enthusiasm and interest in the technology.”
Cunhas first 3D printout was done in 2016.
“I really had a lot in mind for this painting.
I knew that it needed to have a sense of color and depth,” Cundas said.
“And the 3D printed glasses I chose are very different from the ones I normally use, which is a hard thing to do.
They are not necessarily a better or worse quality than the regular glasses, but they are definitely a much more comfortable experience.”
3D Printing glasses will come in a variety of sizes, including the large glasses, the small glasses, and even a very small size called a “titanium-plated” glass.
The glasses are currently available in different shapes and colors, but Cunases design was to create something completely unique, so he went with a “tall, skinny, and very skinny” version of the glasses.
“That makes it easier to design for different eyes, and you can see the colors differently,” Cunnas explained.
“You can really have a very specific vision for the final look.”

That’s why I wanted to have this big-ass glass on my head.
That gave me a little bit of leeway in how I could design it.”

3,000 3D prints are currently being printed on a daily basis in the U.S. for the purpose of 3-dimensional printing, which allows anyone to print out anything from a tiny drawing to a full-size painting or sculpture.
“The glasses are really easy to design, because they are a normal glass,” Cuncas explained to Fast Company about his glasses design.
“But the trick is designing something that’s not just a normal 3D object, but one that’s something that looks like the real thing, and I’ve been able to do that.”

Cunasa told Fast Co that his design has been used in several different projects.
For instance, the glasses will be made to match the shape of a human’s head to the shape in the background of a picture.
“This way, when you see the picture, you can just look up and you’re like, ‘Wow, it looks like this,'” Cunnascas said of his design.
CUNAs Glass Art glass is a very unique and very interesting idea.
It has a very different look and feel than typical Glass Glasses, which are usually rectangular or square.
“My Glass Glass is really, really cool,” Cunnyas said when asked about the idea of designing glasses that match his design for his art installation, but he added that it’s not something he’s worried about making it look like an expensive piece of art.
“People who have glasses like this can actually create something like a real piece of work with it,” Cuntas said about his Glass Glass Art.
“Like, I’m not trying to make it look expensive.”

3 D Printing, Glass, and 3-Ds is not the only 3-dimensions technology that 3D artists have been using to create works of art, but it is a technology that has really caught on with the art community.
