Yinyun is an art installation composed of 85 unique 3D printed ceramic units, located in Taipower D/S ONE exhibition hall in Taipei, Taiwan. Through generative design algorithm, the electric data was extracted and visualized on every unit, together creating a gradient effect. Ceramic 3D printing, with a mixture of recycled material, was then used to fabricate these units, at the same time, creating detailed surface relief which was indicated by this technique. None of the units is the same as others.
In the daytime, Unream is an artifact that reflects sunlight to display dynamically; at night, it uses artificial lights to create a fantasy-like atmosphere. With Unream, the designers hope to blur the line between the digital and physical world, bringing impossible materials to real-world product design. Unream is the first 3D printed object that displays dynamically by itself. With multi-material voxel printing, the designers expand binary material presence to dynamic material experience, reimagining the relationship between human, space, and objects.
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.
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 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.
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.
