In the Details: Making a 3D-Printed Product Line That Doesn't Look Like It Was 3D-Printed

In the Details: Making a 3D-Printed Product Line That Doesn't Look Like It Was 3D-Printed | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it

While desktop 3D printers have made rapid prototyping at home as easy as the push of a button, that accessibility comes at a price—a much lower level of quality than with traditional manufacturing methods. As a result, desktop 3D printing is still not a viable option for making finished products.


At least, that's the general assumption—one that the New York-based Italian designers Barbara Busatta and Dario Buzzini hope to challenge with their Machine Series, a line of containers that are ready for use hot off the printer.


Busatta and Buzzini's collaboration was born out of a promise to do a project together each year under the studio name ICOSAEDRO, each time focusing on a specific material or craft as part of a joint effort to learn a new methodology. For their inaugural effort, Buzzini, a design director at IDEO, said that he and Busatta, a freelance art director, were drawn to the "artisanal process" of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), a 3D-printing technology that involves melting plastic filament and extruding it layer-on-layer to build a form.

I have a leap motion device at home (via kickstarter!). It remains a toy on my desk as I have yet to find meaningful applications for the device in the information worker area. 


However this video shows very well how a simple 99$ device can completely transform the design process and product innovation.

The cost ratio of materials to total part cost also depends on part size: When making parts smaller than the size of the human hand, materials cost is only about 10 to 15 percent of total part cost.

Functional 3D Printed Replica of the Malevich Teapot - 3D Printing Industry | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it

Geometric Abstraction has just launched a new reproduction model — called the Malevich Teapot 2.0 — and it is manufactured using 3D printing with ceramic materials.


This year it is exactly 90 years ago that Kazimir Malevich introduced his famous teapot in 1923 at the State Porcelain Factory in Saint-Petersburg in Russia. To celebrate this event Geometric Abstraction has just launched a new reproduction model — called the Malevich Teapot 2.0 — and it is manufactured using 3D printing with ceramic materials by Shapeways.

Will 3D Printing Push Past the Hobbyist Market?

Will 3D Printing Push Past the Hobbyist Market? | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it


3-D printing is real and creating renewed excitement these days. While not exactly a Star Trek replicator, a 3-D printer uses computer images to make, or "print," three-dimensional objects.
