HKU’s pavilion of 1000 3D printed clay structures goes on display

Designers from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) combined traditional Chinese clay craft with 3D printed architecture to create the CeramicINformation pavilion, a 3m² structure made up of 1000 interconnected clay structures. The CeramicInformation project, led by Christian J. Lange and Donn Holohan from the HKU Faculty of Architecture, examines the role of digital design and fabrication in emerging economies. The pavilion […]

Northwestern’s 3D printer auto generates designs for future Wi-Fi

How can 3D printing give you faster internet? Form-fitting health trackers for sneakers? Or even an invisibility cloak? Scientists in photonics (the study of light) have been working on projects touching these ideas for some time. At the base level, such products rely on the manipulation of light, through waveguides designed to channel/block specific wavelengths. […]

Budmen Industries exhibition mixes 3D printing with art

3D printed design is slowly starting to enter the homes of those outside the 3D printing community with a range from Ikea and the much hyped Carbon x adidas futurecraft 4D shoe. Budmen Industries is a design house that brings together creativity, technology, and industry. Founded in Philadelphia by artists Isaac Budmen and Stephanie Keefe, Budmen […]

Interview with Framlab creatives behind 3D printed Homed shelters for NYC

3D printing has become a buzzword within construction for its potential to automate what is, traditionally, a labor-intensive process. Moreover, additive manufacturing provides architects with new possibilities in materials and design, encouraging structures built with little environmental impact, and low material cost. Recently, Homed, a project seeking to provide shelter for New York’s growing homeless population, […]

Wang & Söderström verwenden Algroithmus für bunte 3D-gedruckte Vasen

Das dänische Design Studio, Wang &  Söderström, hat eine Kollektion mit 3D-gedruckten Vasen entwickelt. Mit Hilfe einiger Tricks haben die Designer es so geschafft, dass die 3D-gedruckten Vasen gar nicht mehr 3D-gedruckt aussehen. Die „Excavition“ Kollektion wurde vom Wang & Söderström entwickelt und in Zusammenarbeit mit Unique Board gefertigt. Damit die 3D-gedruckten Vasen nicht mehr […]

3D-gedruckter „Altersanzug“ lässt junge Menschen kurz alt sein

Ein modernes Designstudio in Polen hat einen 3D-gedruckten Altersanzug entwickelt. Dieser soll es jungen Menschen ermöglichen sich für einige Augenblicke deutlich älter zu fühlen. So soll das Verständnis für ältere Generationen verbessert werden. Die Bevölkerung wird immer älter. Daraus resultiert eine immer größere Anzahl an älteren Menschen. Möbelstücke und Einrichtungen werden aber hauptsächlich von jungen […]

3D Printing Industry speaks to Burning Man temple architect Arthur Mamou-Mani

Every year, the Burning Man gathering (its organizers insist it is not a festival) takes place at Black Rock City, a temporary tent metropolis in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Among its attractions are a central temple, which is ritually burnt like the eponymous “Man” at the end of the festival. 2018 will see […]

Rapid Liquid Printing creates lamps and bags on demand at Design Miami

The first public demonstration of MIT’s rapid liquid 3D printing process took place at the Design Miami event. Rapid liquid printing (RLP) was developed by furniture and interior design company Steelcase and the Self Assembly lab at MIT, a cross-disciplinary research facility co-directed by Skylar Tibbits and Jared Laucks. Liquid Printed Bag from Self-Assembly Lab, […]
