Created by Robb Godshaw and Max Hawkins, Smaller & Upside Down is a collection of custom designed 3D-printed lenses, each custom-designed and fabricated using a new rapid prototyping process.
Wanderers is a collaborative project between Neri Oxman + Mediated Matter Group, Christoph Bader & Dominik Kolb to create four digitally grown and 3d printed wearables.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Kepler’s Dream is an aesthetics exploration investigating analog projection in combination with computationally created object which is given a physical shape through 3D printing
Christoph Bader & Dominik Kolb (deskriptiv) are currently working on an algorithm as an application that produces procedural sculptures for 3D printing.
Music Drop is an interpretation of traditional hand cranked music box with the ability for the user to create their own custom tune.
Through generative fabrication and computational design, this project aims to reconnect digital and physical contexts through a custom designed “chronomorphologic modeling” environment.
Following the recent clashes with 3D printers over IP concerns, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez chose to disguise his latest derivative of Mickey Mouse and to explore this smoothed 3D aesthetic
Created using Processing, ModelBuilder Library by Marius Watz and a 3D printer, Amanda Ghassaei at instructables managed to print a 33rpm music record that actually doesn’t sound too bad considering the limitations of currently available 3d printing technologies. These records play on regular turntables, with regular needles, at regular speeds, just like any vinyl record. Though the audio output from these records […]
Amongst the wonderful collection of work currently on show at the Royal College of Art, in the corner on the first floor sits an installation/object by Markus Kayser called Solar Sinter. An MA Design Products student project, Solar Sinter is probably one of the most inspiring projects this year, aiming to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and […]
Fluid Vase is an object designed by simulating fluid action. The aim was to translate actions commonly associated with an object into the object itself, which in this case is the action of pouring water into a vase. A high speed camera was used to capture actual water motion in vases of different shapes at 500 […]
For L’Artisan Electronique, Unfold created -aside from the ceramic printer– a virtual pottery wheel in collaboration with Tim Knapen. This pottery wheel gives visitors a chance to ‘turn’ their own forms. Every time a visitor presses “Save” on the arcade buttons, the creation is saved to disk and displayed on the wall. At regular intervals, a selection of these designs […]
