DefeXtiles

DefeXtiles is a rapid and low-cost technique to produce realistic high-fidelity textiles on 3D printers. The work demonstrates that under-extrusion defects can be finely controlled to quickly print thin flexible textiles into complex 3D shapes. This approach enables a myriad of applications including printing full sized garments, deformable tangible interfaces, and ultra-tough shuttlecocks.

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.

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.

Aitable

Standard designs for a table this heavy would require a thick section under the tabletop. Artificial intelligence presents a powerful tool to search for structurally more efficient design strategies to deliver radically new aesthetics, producing zero wastage in the fabrication. Using precise 3DPrinted sand molds, the three unique legs are cast in bronze and manually polished, creating sophisticated effects of nuanced reflections under changing light conditions. AI Table showcases how digital design can foster creativity and pragmatism.

Anycubic Kobra

The design is a powerful and portable 3D printer, inspired by the modular design concept of military weapons such as firearms and fighter jets. The black as the main color with dark blue and Chinese red, which is simple but high-tech. Different from most printers on the market, it has the innovative auto-leveling function that enables the platform to be placed in a horizontal position without manual setting. With PEI coating, spring steels and the soft magnetic, which is absorbed instantly while putting it down.

Sprout

Through the topology optimization of the bicycle frame deployment, and then according to the corresponding optimization results, the optimization of the corresponding frame prototype is completed, and then the bicycle is produced by 3D printing. The topology-optimized bicycle frame not only reasonably plans the material structure distribution , but also reduces the energy consumption rate and the emission of harmful substances in production.
