Sprout

Through the topology optimization of the bicycle frame deployment, and then according to the corresponding optimization results, the optimization of the corresponding frame prototype is completed, and then the bicycle is produced by 3D printing. The topology-optimized bicycle frame not only reasonably plans the material structure distribution , but also reduces the energy consumption rate and the emission of harmful substances in production.

DefeXtiles

DefeXtiles is a rapid and low-cost technique to produce realistic high-fidelity textiles on 3D printers. The work demonstrates that under-extrusion defects can be finely controlled to quickly print thin flexible textiles into complex 3D shapes. This approach enables a myriad of applications including printing full sized garments, deformable tangible interfaces, and ultra-tough shuttlecocks.

CHESS DRAMA

The pieces of xiangqi are always kept in a 2-dimensional feature with a round object engraved with Chinese characters and never changed before. Because of this monotonous shape, more and more youngsters tend to regard xiangqi as a board game for the elderly. So this design is to meet rising aesthetic needs of people, arousing interests of the young in this ancient puzzle game in a result of increasing the market share of the game. That means this unique Chinese culture is no longer confined to the group of middle and old aged people, but can also become a trend in the younger generation.

Shadowbrook

Shadowbrook is part of the first-ever collection of 3D printed metal residential faucets, created via additive manufacturing. A celebration of the natural experience of water, the Shadowbrook presents an unforgettable experience not achievable using traditional manufacturing methods. Water flows from the multi-faceted Shadowbrook faucet spout, recreating the poetic flow of water bouncing on rocks in a riverbed. It enchants the user by reinventing the experience of receiving water from a tap.

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.
