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

3D Printed Glove

Engineers from Jaguar Land Rover are working on the next generation of protective workplace clothing – a lightweight 3D-printed glove which could help better protect employees from the threat of a musculoskeletal disorder.

3D Printed Geodesic Dome

Geodesic Dome

+LAB is the new 3D printing lab of Politecnico of Milan. Their team is composed by designers and engineers conducting academic research on this amazing technology! This geodesic dome is an example, designed and fabricated by them.

Orbicular 3D Printed Lamp

Orbicular Lamp

The Orbicular lamp by Nervous System is a series of table lamps based on how veins form in leaves. Each lamp is a completely one-of-a-kind design 3D-printed in nylon plastic with its own unique form and pattern of veins.

4D Printing In Action

4D Printing In Action

This is a 4D printing video by Pranavee M of 4D printing in action. 5 videos put together showing tests from MIT Self assembly laboratory demonstrating the functionality of shape transformation. Flat-printed structures that, once placed in hot water, slowly folds themselves into another structure.

3D Printed Dynamic Tensegrity

3DPrinted Dynamic Tensegrity

A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a way to use 3-D printers to create objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from space missions to biomedical devices.

3D Printing Auxetic Materials

3D Printing Auxetic Materials

This video from Two Minute Papers is about auxetic materials. Auxetic materials are materials that when stretched, thicken perpendicular to the direction we’re stretching them. In other words, instead of thinning, they get fatter when stretched.

Spider Bracket Structure

Spider Bracket Structure

Altair, Materialise and Renishaw collaborated to successfully create a lattice structured spider bracket; a functional structure which is lightweight, robust and reminds biological lifeforms. The design for the spider bracket was generated using Altair OptiStruct, prepared for printing with Materialise software Magics, 3-matic and the Build Processor, to be 3D printed on Renishaw’s AM250 metal additive manufacturing system.
