Demonstrating New-School Manufacture

Here are a selection of 3D prints I have worked on recently to demonstrate the processes involved in 3D printing to friends and family, both young and old.  I found an effective way to do this is to design and produce a relatively simple 3D print, such as key fobs and wall plaques, and allow people to have a play around with the software and printer.

Love Knux 3D Print

Another addition to my ‘Knux’ 3D prints.  This ‘Love Knux’ print was designed for a friend.

Printed using an Ultimaker desktop printer, with a single PLA extrusion.  I was very impressed that a print like this could be achieved without using any support structures.  Post print, I gave any rough edges a light sanding.  You can see my ‘Birthday Knux’ print here.

Dia de Los Muertos

This laser engraved piece is inspired by the Mexican holiday “Dia de Los Muertos” in which family members gather to pray for and remember family and friends who have passed away.

This piece originated from an ink drawing I worked on two years ago.  I wanted to experiment by introducing the drawing to different mediums, in this case laser engraving a piece of wood.  The engraved piece of wood is much smaller than the original and due to constraints of laser etching, a lot of detail was lost.  However, I love the way in which the wood grain compliments the fluidity and movement of the hair.

Sneak Preview – Rube Goldberg Project

Here are some pictures of a “Rube Goldberg” inspired project I am working on at university.

My project is titled “The History of Sound Recording” and will have eight knock-on features that illustrate the main technological advances in sound recording over the years.  Stay tuned for the finished project.
