I think it is the volume of items, but something about this looks different than anything I have seen before printed from video games.
3D printing is full of math based designs. Many look pretty much the same. This one seems to work more than most.

Construction sites often look better then their intended end result.
This vase symbolises, and at the same time, questions the fabrication process which was used to make it.
Modern day rapid prototyping allows for almost instant satisfaction of the wildest 3 dimensional dreams.
With the beauty of the construction site intentionally integrated in this design, it supports both an aesthetic and a functional purpose.
This eggshell thin vase simply would not be able to exist and function without it’s voronoi skeleton.
When you imagine all the development hours that went into the creation of the internet and then apply all those hours to digital manufacturing, it is possible to imagine a future where 3d printed things are standard items.
So the 3D printed pen project is still in progress. The second iteration came back cleaned today (full of printing errors, but none that a razor couldn’t fix), and I was able to fully assemble it without the O-Ring. That’s a good sign of progress, but the further this goes the more things pop up as problems. Gripe list after the jump.
This is a bit of news about 3d printing in the arab world, but the print is what I would like to note. It is a pretty interesting piece of architectural 3d printing.

Every day there is a new 3d printed head. This is one of the best I have seen. I think it is because of the slight tilt of the head, making it easier to print.
