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.

Georgia

Georgia is an open toe 3” block heel with a flexible 3D printed sole that feels like a sneaker and looks like a clog. The platform combines a traditional insole, midsole, outsole, and shank of a high heel into a single 3D-printed platform that embodies the performance requirements of each of these layers within a complete construction. Inset into the platform is a woven mesh of lattice that acts as a dynamic form of supportive cushion. To top it off, a soft leather upper that comes with two interchangeable strap options.

Last Stand

The last stand is a fancy, 3d printed, dynamic, ergonomic, aesthetically catching product, made by Ospina Umbreit design studio, to give dying pencils a longer life. Almost every human has used a pencil as a way to physically materialize and communicate ideas, language, concepts, etc. However, pencils are not used 100% before they get thrown away. Their ergonomics become really unsuitable to most users after being sharpened many times; they get on average 20% of their product spam thrown away, making pencils not totally optimized. Every pencil user can give their dying pencils a last stand.

The Flett

Flett Flashing is the world's first 3D printed roof flashing. 3D printing allows the flashing to perfectly match any specified roofing profile and colour and permits junctions between roofing sheets of different pitches to be installed without difficulty. This invention makes architectural cladding quicker, easier and cheaper to install and represents a step change for the roofing and cladding industry.

Polyhedron

The Polyhedron stool is a 3d printed stool that has an interaction of a closing flower. Except for one CNC processed metal component, every part is made through the 3d printer, allowing individuals to produce and reproduce themselves within small amounts (leading to numerous variations). When a flower sets, its petals gather (twirling inside). The ends go up, and the height gets changed. As grabbing its head, rotating the upper part makes pillars move and escalates the stool. The four gears inside convert circular move vertically, making the pillar's end rise.
