Phoenix-based metal art sculptor Kevin Caron first discovered 3D printing a few years ago when he was sent an “image” of his brother-in-law’s arm and hand. “I saw the detail,” Caron says, “and it was, ‘Whoa!’” He immediately envisioned prototypes for his metal art customers. Now 3D art is a key part of his repertoire, with commissioned pieces, jewelry designs and gallery showings.
“It’s a wine-consuming effort,” Caron jokes. “But it allows me to create art without always having to go to the studio.” Caron walks us through his 3D process at his home studio. kevincaron.com
