Object Design for 1m3

Prototyping of functional objects on printed on 1m3.

During our residency with Core77 at A/D/O, we designed and printed functional objects on the 1m3 printer. We set out to explore a variety of form factors, both as a means to test the machine for different applications, and to generate concepts that could be developed further and produced repeatedly.

We needed to work with the physical characteristics of the plastic in mind when designing forms to print on 1m3. The way that the plastic behaves is unique when printing on this scale, both in its weight and its viscosity. This required a lot of testing, and also lead to unique design constraints.
