Hot Pop Factory created a collection of pieces that imitate patterns and textures found in nature, using a Makerbot Replicator to print every piece. After each piece is printed, it is put together by hand, making every single piece totally unique.
This paper by HAO ZHENG, BARRAK DARWEESH, HEEWON LEE and LI YANG presents a framework that makes full use of three degrees of freedom of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines through the generation of Gcode in the Rhino and Grasshopper environment.
This paper presents the main challenges and outcomes achieved during the process of design and production of a vault cover system. Based on the discretization of a vault in hexagonal blocks, this system intends to control solar incidence by its adaptive inner structure.
Nature and its structures are always a central theme in Lilian van Daal ’s work. In this 3D printed material exploration the sequence of Fibonacci was applied. Lilian is exploring whether this sequence can be used for the application and improvement of interior design products.
This article presents a digital design and manufacturing approach for soft lattices structures subject to large deformations and instabilities, for which applications in soft robotics, healthcare, personal protection, energy absorption, fashion and design are rapidly emerging.
Designed by 3D print service Digits2Widgets as a means to demonstrate the possibilities of 3D printing, the “fabric” is quite flexible. So flexible it’s almost comfortable against your skin. It’s like cloth, as it droops when lifted.
Iris van Herpen designed a ready-to-wear collection for Fall/Winter 2015 in Paris, where she worked with other designers to create an edgy, 3D printed collection that explores terraforming.
Inspirational Printer Artists who use sophisticated computer software to create designs so complex that they can only be made by 3D printing.
These large-scale pavilions form an immersive entry environment to the 2016 Design Miami Exhibition. After SHoP Architects was awarded the 2016 Design Miami Visionary Award with an invitation to design the entry, the firm quickly reached out to Branch Technology
Additive Formwork by Brian Peters, explores the potential and advantages of 3D printed, flexible formwork for precast concrete architectural applications.
Droid by ytsebastian is a 3D printing related Grasshopper Plug-in Library add-on, with control over model Slicing, Custom paths and Gcode generation. Designed to be used from small desktop 3d Printers, up to large scale Robotic Fabricators.
‘Triple S’ –developed in 2017– is based on traditional Thai craftsmanship to generate Surface, Structure, and Shelter in a single process; its specific artisanal form creating beautiful framework for structural purposes, easily building living spaces.
This paper by Paulo J.S. CRUZ et al. presents the main challenges and outcomes of an ongoing research project aiming to explore the integration of digital additive manufacturing techniques in the architectural design.
Silkworm by Karl Adam, Arthur and Andrei – The Silkworm Team, is a plugin that translates Grasshopper and Rhino geometry into GCode for 3d printing.
Arachne by Archi-Solution Workshop is a digital architectural endeavor to redefine an ordinary building with 3D printed components. It’s installed by the spatially intertwined lattices that hung on the building in the curtain wall mechanism.
Whorl Lamps by Andrew Kudless, Matsys design studio are composed of three interconnected layers of 3D-printed nylon. The thinness of the material allows light to transmit through it while the curved geometry adds stiffness.
This paper by Yota Adilenidou et al. presents a 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) experiment at the full scale of virtual architectural bodies developed through a computational technique based on the use of Cellular Automata (CA).
