The goal of this project is to improve the overall healing experience for broken or fractured limbs by focusing on the patient’s comfort and healing time. Osteoid cast offers a new way of tackling these problems by introducing new technologies which enables us to make custom fitted, durable 3D printed medical casts that doesn't itch or smell. The end products are slimmer, lighter, doesn't affect from water and environmentally friendly. This cast can also be combined with, a low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) bone stimulator resulting in faster recovery.
Alice Le Biez, French young designer has realized a set of three bowls, printed in 3D ceramics. The shape of each bowls reminds traditional ceramics technique. She created with her project an illusion of a hand-made bowl by the design but also by the making process. Her 3D printing object explores the link between traditional skills and new technologies and demonstrates that designer can use the new technologies as a tool to go further in their work and discover a new field of creation.
Coral is found underwater and not many people get an opportunity to explore their beauty. These three wearable rings attempts to bring coral’s intricate form and colours, as well as its importance to the attention of the society. The design is an abstract representation of coral’s deterioration. There are three stages in this series; the first stage displays a healthy and prosperous well-being of coral reef. In the second stage, the coral begins to die and it shows half its skeleton and half its polyps. Finally, the third stage shows the inside skeleton of coral, representing its death.
Supercar System is an automotive product that has been simplified, rationalized and re-constituted, to enable configurability and assembly by customers. The cars Eureka feature enables owners to design and 3D print their very own car bodies with very little technical or design know how and achieve practical, usable results. To design and print thier own Supercar body Customers download the simplified solid model chassis file along with a free copy of Google sketch-up and get designing.
Cellular Table has been commissioned to explore new ways of producing metal in the field of furniture design. The project uses a double-layer algorithmic pattern to provide both strength and flexibility. The final form of the table is developed through multiple iterations of the algorithm to provide an optimum level of porosity and lightness. Finally, the manufacturing process offers the use of both 3d printing and electro-forming process to increase both lightweight and sculptural qualities of a typical metal furniture within in a given interior environment.
The BowTie, by Monocircus, is a bow tie made by 3D printing technology. It is a bow tie made in nylon plastic and needs no tying like the typical fabric bow ties. To put it on, simply slot it onto the button of any collared dress shirt. It is easy and comfortable to wear and stays in shape and style without the need for adjusting. The checkered mesh structure creates an interesting visual impact, yet maintains a simplicity that is suitable for different fashion styles and occasions whether formal or casual.
