Milan Design Week opens with the most beautiful 3D printed house yet

Milan Design Week 2018, or Salone Del Mobile Milano, is in full swing in the global taste-making capital of Northern Italy. This week, in an exhibit made for 3D printing enthusiasts with an eye for architecture, UK design firm Arup and Italy’s CLS Architetti put the finishing touches on the 3D HOUSING 05 project – a 100 square […]

What an academic study into 3D remix culture shows us about creativity

Back in January 2017, Prof. Sascha Friesike, of the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) gave keynote speech at the Chaos Communication Congress (33C3) in Hamburg, Germany. In his talk entitled “What we can learn about creativity from 3D printing”, he observed just “how important remixing is for the creative process we […]

Study Outlines New Tool For 3D Printing Complex Interlocking Furniture Parts

It’s only a matter of time before researchers work out all the design kinks of 3D printed furniture. One of the main concerns with FDM printing furniture is that most manufacturers have to print parts separately due to the limitations of build spaces. For this reason, users and developers assemble the furniture from these disparate […]

Designers at UCL 3D Print Voxel Chair From Single Strand of Plastic

Researchers at University College London’s Bartlett School of Architecture recently revealed a new manufacturing method. This new design implementation process shows how structures can originate from single continuous, strands of plastic. The method has less to do with hardware than with the researcher’s software. Whereas most software use a layer by layer deposition method, this […]

From drum and bass to tables and chairs

A former DJ in Dundee has swapped the decks for art and design with his own line of furniture that will take pride of place at the University of Dundee Art, Design and Architecture Degree Show. Jon Christie has adopted 3D printing as part of his design process in a bid to reduce the overall cost of expensive parts that take a large amount of intricate woodworking. More than 100 industry professionals have kept a close eye on this final year university project, which is almost unheard of in the design industry. “I didn’t know anything about 3D printing,” he said. “But through a lot of trial, error, sweat and tears I like to think I’ve become something of an expert and have now mastered the substitution of tricky woodworked parts with 3D printed joints. “This means fewer complicated wooden components will be needed for the construction process in both large and small-scale manufacturing.” DJ goes to Denmark Christie was a well-known face on the Dundee club scene and he also owned Pressure Records, a popular shop in the city. Then a trip to his new wife’s home country of Denmark had a profound impact on his life. 20 years ago, furniture in Great Britain really wasn’t the style statement it is today. Christie was inspired by the elegant furniture he encountered in people’s homes in Denmark. He was also […]

Massivit’s Huge 3D Printer Lands in the US with PriscoDigital Deal

By Davide Sher

Ever since I first learned about the Massivit 1800 3D printer, it seemed clear that this large format machine, capable of creating parts that are nearly 6’ x 5’ x 4’ in size, in record short times and at very low materials costs, could represent a revolution in wide -ormat 3D printing. Judging by the photogallery on Massivit’s website, that is exactly what is happening.

The first adopters of this technology are large format digital (2D) printing services, as well as communication providers.…

Take a Seat on the Robotically 3D Printed Percy Stool

By Tyler Koslow

While studying Industrial Design at the Melbourne, Australia-based RMIT University, soon-to-be-graduated student Ryan Pennings invested his time performing research projects that were aimed at combining algorithmic design with 3D printing technology. Pennings found a way to amalgamate the two processes for his final project in the RMIT design program, a series of 3D printed stools named the Percy Stools.

RMIT University’s Industrial Design program has a heavy focus on industrial, furniture, and product design, featuring a honors component for which Pennings undertook the Percy Stool project (with supervision from RMIT Architecture and Design Professor Scott Mayson).…
