Mobius Nautilus by Joaquin Baldwin is a compound mobius strip created out of 36 interlocking mobius strips. They weave and interlock perfectly through the spaces left between them.

3D printed project EGG

Project EGG

Project EGG is made from 4,760 individuated pieces, which have been made by hundreds of desktop 3D-printers from all over the world. Conceived and organized by furniture designer Michiel Van Der Kley, the irregular ellipsoid form measures roughly 5 x 4 x 3 meters.

Bloom Pavilion from 3D Printed Cement

Bloom Pavilion

The California-based Emerging Objects team has created Bloom, a pavilion constructed from 840 unique blocks 3-D printed from portland cement. The 9-foot (2.7 meter) tall pavilion is cruciform in plan, morphing as it rises to become the same cruciform shape twisted by 45 degrees.

Trabeculae 3D Printed Pavilion

Trabeculae Pavilion

Trabeculae Pavilion by WASP is a lightweight architecture completely 3D printed that fuses advancements in 3D printing with bio-inspired computational design. The synergy of design, material and manufacturing technologies allowed the conceptualization of an innovative construction technique.

Bow 3D Printed Chair

Bow

Bow is the result of Zaha Hadid architects’ extensive research with 3D printing and material experimentation. It’s biodegradable, and machine-optimized, printed with a pellet-extruder (meaning, they employ plastic particles rather than filament), and colored in such an adaptive way.

3D Printed Bloom Lamp

3D Printed Bloom Lamp

French designer Patrick Jouin’s Bloom Table Lamp opens up right in front of your eyes. The lamp 3D printed as a single piece, including hinges, and it allows the user to control the amount of light. When closed, the lamp emits a soft glow perfect for accent lighting.

DoubleMesh 3d modeling app for 3d printing

DoubleMesh

DoubleMesh by deskriptiv is an application prototype that encapsulates a generative system which enables the easy creation of interwoven structures. The digitally woven structure does not require much build material. This makes such objects ideal for 3D printing, since big objects can be produced at low cost.

3D Printed Jewelry

3D Printed Jewelry

Dutch designer elleke van gorsel, founder of studio-eposh designed 3D printed delft blue jewelry collection. Each design is printed and hand-dyed and finished by the designer. Like other studio-eposh products, ‘delft blue’ is 100% sourced and locally made in the Netherlands.

BIOSTAGOG Interactive Sculpture

BIOSTAGOG

Designed by Platige Image and Bridge, BIOSTAGOG is an interactive sculpture that combines algorithmic design, 3D printing, mapping and interaction. BIOSTAGOG was created to be a living organism in the lobby of Platige that takes an active part in the company’s everyday life.

Parametric Shoes

Parametric Shoes

The process of design had on the one hand, the contribution of the creative shoe-designer Alessio Spinelli, on the other hand, the technical know-how of the team of architects Maurizio Arturo Degni and Arturo Tedeschi. The aim was to introduce the technology in the creative method.

Poroso wooden block aggregation

Poroso

Poroso by Emerging Objects is an experiment in block aggregation using a specially formulated wood material. The wood has a higher accuracy and finer finish. It is also stronger and more easily able to be excavated from the print bed.

3D Printed Glove
