Escher, master of illusion, For Real: His drawings 3D printed

Many people are familiar with the work of M.C. Escher. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusion’s artwork presents to the layman’s eye. Many of the so-called ‘impossible’ drawings of M. C. Escher can be realized as actual physical objects, Prof. Gershon Elber of Technion’s Faculty of Computer Science has done just this.

His research team has developed a unique CAD application for designing “impossible” 3D objects, with the 3D printer in Technion’s Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning The Belvedere comes to life in a 3D model.
