This evening, in London, there is going to be a "Human vs 3D printer" event at London's Victoria and Albert Museum, featuring the Maxit 3D printer from A1 Technologies Ltd. This event is the Re-Match of Wilcox vs 3D Printer, following his success at Milan design week.

British designer Dominic Wilcox, graduate of the RCA Design Product course, creates unique, often humourous objects inspired by human behaviour. Wilcox takes on the rapid prototyping machine for a re-match, making a model by hand as the printer produces the same form from a computer file.
