People are 3D printing everything right now. They’re working on food, jewelry, architecture, cars, clothing, and even guns (yikes). But who cares about that stuff when you can 3D print your own cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures?
Interaction Design Professor at Hof University Michael Zöllner has created his own 3D Printed Joy Division cover, but the best part is that he’s posted the file for download in MakerBot’s Thingiverse so that you can make your very own copy, too.
The iconic cover art was created in 1979 by Graphic designer Peter Saville. It is the visual depiction of the first pulsar signal ever recorded. Watch a great video with Peter where he talks about the explosion of the image as a part of pop culture history. “It’s the endless interpretations of this diagram that make it so powerful.”
