Loom

Loom is an expandable, adaptable, wearable and flexible 3D printed dress that adapts to all body types and body changes. Since we aren’t able to 3D print fabrics yet, Loom explores the possibilities of creating wearable 3D printed textiles with structures that are designed in relation to function, anatomy, movement, and utility. 3D printing in the fashion industry can be revolutionary and helpful if it is designed with functionality and the human body in mind. Loom proves that 3D printing clothing is more feasible, affordable, adaptable and possible than we think.

3D Printed Record

3D printed records push the limits of what is currently possible given the precision of digital fabrication tools available to consumers today. These records were generated algorithmically from digital audio data and printed on a UV-cured resin 3D printer to micron precision. Though the audio quality is low, the records are meant to be a demonstration of the current state of the technology and encourage discussion about the broader implications that 3D printing has for the future of personal fabrication.

Good Health Light

The sculptural design aims to preserve diminishing craftsmanship of traditional bird cage making with a contemporary improvisation. It resemble the collective memory of aged people for relieving Alzheimer's Disease. The design brings a bold propaganda of attention to the cultural heritage as well as awareness to elderly through the seamless assimilation between modern technology and traditional craftsmanship. This retrofit resin 3D printed birdcage aims to relieve Alzheimer's Disease progression via triggering social mingling and story telling by elderly in aged homes.

Pebble Garden Machine

The pebble garden machine is an additive manufacturing process developed for dry landscape design. It deploys coarse randomized aggregates, using epoxy resin as a binder and is assembled by an industrial robot into three-dimensional structures. It is perhaps the first application of 3D printing for dry landscape design and fabrication, creating counterintuitive geometric features such as tapering walls, cantilevering edges and low spanning arches. Overall artefacts have natural, man-made and machine aspects that are beautiful and breathtaking, capable to be produced at a fast rate.

Yinyun

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.

MICROSCAPE

Microscape is a new collection of architecturally-precise models of cities around the world. We’re starting with one of the greatest cities of all: New York. The first phase is a series of 200 “microscapes” (distinct tiles of different parts of the city), which can be assembled into a complete, highly accurate model of Manhattan. Start building New York City with a single microscape that includes your favorite landmark or choose a microscape with more personal significance
