Perpetual

Perpetual is a 3D printed kinetic pendant with material available in resin, brass, silver and other metals. A new 3D printing method that enables interlocking structure was applied to allow the three layers of cubes spin in which the axis of rotation is free to assume any orientation by itself. Each layer of cubic lattice breaks the notion of containment-the inner layers break though the cubic volume of its sequel container. The digital modeling process involves constant awareness of 3D Printing parameters and constrains, which bring design and manufacture an integrated process.

Voxel

Voxel is a 3D printed decorative accessory with minimalist appearance that captures the timeless quality of American muscle car 1970 Charger from film Fast&Furious. Materials are available in resin, brass, silver and other metals. The car’s volume was parametrically generated into voxel grids and interconnected lattice structure, which is not possible to produce without 3D printing. The digital modeling process involves constant awareness of 3D Printing parameters and constrains, which bring design and manufacture an integrated process.

Print to Build

The collection provides the opportunity for the users to build furniture, installations, partitions as well. It depends on the creativity. The joints are able to be printed with any kind of three dimensional printers included fuse deposition modelling machines. It is allowed to connect 8 millimeters wide plywood sheets to each other in different angles. It contains 90, 45 and 120 degree elements. One feature of the product is that the users do not have to screw or glue the parts.

CHESS DRAMA

The pieces of xiangqi are always kept in a 2-dimensional feature with a round object engraved with Chinese characters and never changed before. Because of this monotonous shape, more and more youngsters tend to regard xiangqi as a board game for the elderly. So this design is to meet rising aesthetic needs of people, arousing interests of the young in this ancient puzzle game in a result of increasing the market share of the game. That means this unique Chinese culture is no longer confined to the group of middle and old aged people, but can also become a trend in the younger generation.

Bloom at night

The Jasmine flower being a key ingredient in the Alexander McQueen Eau de Parfum product launch, of which blooms only in the night time, is the distinctive and essential inspiration. The need for creating very delicate ornamental flowers, on a large scale, whilst keeping the manufacture relevant to the brand and their ethos. SLS 3D printing was a very unusual method of production and pushing boundaries in technology within the industry. Using the nylon printing techniques keep the fine details and velveteen texture, replicating the beauty of the Jasmine flower perfectly.

Structuretonics

Automation and robots will revolutionise the architecture and construction industries. The work is an investigation into surface geometries and new possibilities to print the building facade using additive manufacturing, carbon reinforced concrete or recyclable 3D printed moulds. The Research Team designed more than hundred facade typologies, forms and structures for the building facade based on simulated environmental performance. The results are layers of unseen form, complex structures and modular prototypes of modular elements that allow a faster production and construction process.
