It has been a while since I have been in touch - hope you are well !
2016 was a very challenging year. It started with the very difficult decision to let my loving rottweiler KAVITA go because she had cancer. She was with me for 12 year. There was a fire in my house soon after that in April, then the death of my best friend from Hong Kong in June and the passing of my brother in Toronto in July. It ended with yet another hard decision to release my cat of 24 years of her pain towards the end of the year.
It was also a year of discovery though - during which my encounter with 3D PRINTING in 2015 has developed into a passion to bring this technology and knowledge to all those who are curious and want to explore.
The Izabel Lam Charitable Foundation was founded and the first project 'TEAM 3D - to empower all minds' was launched. Please visit our website to learn more : www.izabellamfoundation.org
PRINTED by IZABEL LAM was also launched - a collection of 3D PRINTED JEWELRY and TABLE TOP accessories made with state of the art 3D printer - with all our hallmark of flowing and organic elements.
Best wishes for a great rest of the summer and rest !

What is 3D printing and how does it work?
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D-printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Read more
History of 3D Printing.......................
The first 3D printing attempts are granted to Dr Kodama for his development of a rapid prototyping technique in 1980. He was the first to describe a layer by layer approach for manufacturing, creating an ancestor for SLA: a photosensitive resin was polymerised by an UV light.. Read More
