Uformia SymVol: Volume Modeling Extension to Rhino

Symvol™ for Rhino, a plugin to the Rhinoceros® 3D modeling system, is a volume-based modeling extension for the creation of both organic and mechanical objects that are always watertight and ideal for 3D printing.

With Symvol, it more like working with a malleable material, such as clay or metal, as opposed to existing modeling systems which seem more like working with a collection of paper sheets glued together.
Whatever is done during modeling in Symvol, the volume created is always a valid solid object – never any cracks and other surface issues.

Woven carbon-fibre chair

In this movie filmed in Amsterdam, Moooi co-founder Marcel Wanders discusses the woven carbon-fibre chair he designed with Bertjan Pot, which the Dutch brand relaunched this year as a bar stool.

Moooi’s Carbon Chair – based on a prototype by Pot that Wanders helped develop into an industrially produced piece of furniture – is woven from a series of carbon fibres impregnated with epoxy resin to create a strong and light structure.

The seat is produced by hand-weaving black strands of epoxy-soaked carbon fibre around a mould, which set to form a rigid structure that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

“It allows a super light structure to be super strong,” Wanders says in the movie, which Dezeen filmed for Moooi in Amsterdam.

“It was important for us to make a transparent seat, so we weaved it in a classical way with wires impregnated with epoxy.”

Noverturn

Ziel des Projekts „Noverturn“ ist die Erforschung des Zusammenspiels von Entwurf, Tragwerk und Fabrikation am Beispiel von Beton. Hierzu diente die Entwicklung einer Sitzbank als skulpturaler Stahlbetonkörper mit einer über 3m auskragenden Sitzfläche als Versuchsfeld. Um die extreme Auskragung zu ermöglichen, fand ein adaptiertes Spannsystem Verwendung. Alle hierfür notwendigen Fabrikationsprozesse wie Schalungs-, Bewehrungs-, Beton- und Vorspannarbeiten wurden ausschliesslich ETH-intern ausgeführt.

London Designer 3D Prints Intricate ‘Cellular Coffee Table’

We have seen numerous furniture pieces fabricated via large-scale 3D printers. We’ve seen lounge chairs, coffee tables, desks, and all sorts of other decorations for the home. One piece which really opened our eyes to the intricacies and architecture that’s made possible by 3D printing is one by industrial designer Onur Ozkaya.

Ozkaya, who has an extensive background in furniture design, is a lecturer at London Metropolitan University (The CASS) and Cambridge School of Arts. Based in London, Ozkaya decided to use his skill set and understanding of complex geometric patterns and manufacturing techniques to 3D print a coffee table that he calls the ‘Cellular Coffee Table‘.

Cellular Coffee Table has been developed using three different layers of cellular structural body to provide both lightweight and strong furniture type,” explained Ozkaya to 3DPrint.com. “Each layer has a different thickness ratio in order to save material waste and finally aiming to create a much more exciting spatial environment by providing different shadow qualities at different times of the day.

THESE CERAMICS WERE 3D PRINTED USING MUSIC AND SOUND WAVES

Designer Olivier van Herpt and Studio Van Broekhoven have manipulated clay in a most unique fashion. Utilizing sound vibrations while 3D printing in lieu of spinning, each of the pieces of the Solid Vibration collection of ceramics takes on a uniquely ornate pattern exhibiting the characteristics of a woven fabric.

HAS BENJAMIN HUBERT DESIGNED THE WORLD’S LIGHTEST DINING TABLE?

UK-based designer Benjamin Hubert has designed perhaps the world’s lightest wooden table as part of an internal studio research project into lightweight construction. His Ripple table is a little over 8 feet long and about 3.2 feet wide, weighing in at just about 20 pounds (9 kilograms).

Made using 70-80% less material than a standard timber table, Ripple can be assembled and moved around fairly easily by just one person. The lightweight design is due to using a process that corrugates plywood just like cardboard through pressure lamination. Hubert developed this technique with Canadian manufacturer Corelam.
