Interview: Jun Kamei RCA designer behind our 3D printed gills

In Jun Kamei’s latest project, materials science and and cutting edge design combine in a fully 3D printed mask that could help humans breathe underwater. Titled Amphibio, the 3D printed gills were created to serve as a chilling premonition of the effects of Global Warming and the Earth’s rising sea levels. In an exclusive interview for 3D […]

ETH Zurich researchers unlock new architectures with 3D printed molds

Over the space of two months, researchers on the MAS Digital Fabrication team at ETH Zurich created an experimental metal facade using 3D printed sand molds. Composed of 26 individual pieces and standing 3.5 meters high the so-called Deep Facade combines “the geometric freedom of 3D printing with the structural properties of cast metal,” to realize new possibilities in […]
