Abstract 3D digital scanning and printing has the potential to transform design practice, bringing elements of craft into the production process. While increasingly common in the design departments of universities, 3D scanning and printing are seemingly treated as neutral and magical tools. This misses the great potential they have for enabling new forms of creativity in design practice as a new design medium. To do so, however, requires an understanding of their potentials and propensities. Within the context of producing moulds for slip-casting, the authors set about coming to understand the technologies through a set of controlled experiments.
