Cilllia

Inspired by the hair structures occur in nature at different scales with multiple functionalities, Cilllia looks at new ways of 3D printing dense hair on flat and curved surfaces. It allows users to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair, such as mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuation and touch sensing on a 3D printed artifact. The project envisions a future where physical materials’ properties and functions, whether eletrical or mechanical can be encoded in the material fabrication process directly by users.

Mr Beam II

The design with its outstanding corner flaps states that this is a tool you can use in your workshop but also on your office desk. The flaps allow to store it upright without scratching the housing. It is portable and also easy to access and control with any Wi-Fi enabled device running a web-browser. We attached a camera to the safety lid. It provides an accurate preview of the working area including the object you have placed there. Dragging a design into the desired position is now super easy. A full metal safety housing closed with safety glass lid assures secure operation.

Formon Core

Formon Core is designed for the end user, as a plug-and-play device. The whole approach in the design process was to remove the perceptual barriers from the user’s sight, such as cables, motors and other technical elements. By removing these items, Formon Core is psychologically perceived as simple and easy to use and consequentially understood on how it works. The box like appearance resembles a magic box which opens upwards and reveals the printed object. As opposed to the competitors in the market, Formon Core doesn’t look like a factory machine that is not home or office friendly.

Torque

Torque is a 3D printed decorative accessory that captures the spirit of legendary 1970 Charger from film Fast&Furious with material options in resin,brass,silver and other metal alloys.It has two overlaying layers of Voronoi grids that offer a strong alternation to Cartesian grids with its structural loads remain evenly distributed.The changing shape of grids reflects the Doppler effect, here, a car with an accelerating velocity.The digital modeling process involves constant awareness of 3D Printing parameters and constrains, which bring design and manufacture an integrated process.

Perpetual

Perpetual is a 3D printed kinetic pendant with material available in resin, brass, silver and other metals. A new 3D printing method that enables interlocking structure was applied to allow the three layers of cubes spin in which the axis of rotation is free to assume any orientation by itself. Each layer of cubic lattice breaks the notion of containment-the inner layers break though the cubic volume of its sequel container. The digital modeling process involves constant awareness of 3D Printing parameters and constrains, which bring design and manufacture an integrated process.

Polycom Trio

The Polycom RealPresence Trio is the most versatile conference speakerphone in the world. A decade of research on user behavior, needs, and productivity informed the development and design of this multi-purpose conference solution, which revolutionizes the way teams share ideas by evolving the traditional three-legged conference room speaker system into a fully integrated smart hub with the ability to support the way people meet today.
