Top 5 Videos of the Week: Iconic architectural designs thanks to 3D printing…
This week we found the top 5 videos about 3D printing and the way additive manufacturing is shaping our society. The technology has infiltrated many sectors, from medical to automotive! Check out our selection of the week to keep up with the innovations! This week we touch on creating iconic architectural designs using 3D printing, the WASP Hub and much more! If you enjoy these, you can view even more 3D printing videos on our Youtube channel. Hope you’ll enjoy and have a great Sunday!
Top 1: The WASP Hub
WASP is a concrete 3D printer manufacturer that created the WASP Hub Network, one of the world’s largest 3D printing networks. Because all WASP 3D printers are in each WASP Hub, it is possible to just send a file to create in any place of the world. In the following video, you will see how the project Conifera was able to come to life thanks to WASP Hub. Discover the entire 3D printing workflow behind this innovative and impressive project!
Top 2: Additive manufacturing for eyewear
The industry analysis firm, SmarTech Analysis published a new report that focused on the adoption of additive manufacturing in the eyewear industry. Titled “Markets for 3D-Printed Eyewear 2019-2028”, it forecasts the revenues the eyewear industry will make through adoption of AM over the next ten years. In fact, AM in the eyewear industry is expected to total $3.4 billion in 2028. The company Materialise can help companies adopt 3D printing for eyewear thanks to experts in 3D design, fabrication and optimisation!
Top 3: Lattice Design in 3D Printing
The design of a piece for 3D printing is crucial in order to create a functional and efficient object. In the following video, you will learn how design can improve function. For example in the case of the Adidas 3D printed sole, the lattice structure gives the shoe a new level of comfort and performance. Also, it enables the creation of tailor-made solutions, something much harder and costly to achieve with traditional methods.
Top 4: The BOD building
In 2013, COBOD 3D printed the BOD building, the first 3D printed building in Europe. This time around, they are 3D printing the BOD a second time. This is a testament to how much COBOD’s technology has improved – the first time it took them 2 months to create the BOD building, this time it only took 3 days to print. Find out more below!
Top 5: Designing the museum of the future
Killa Design uses 3D printing to create iconic designs that are fast becoming landmarks – including one of the most complex structures ever built. In order to create the museum of the future, they are using Ultimaker’s 3D printing solution. Check out the process behind the creation of this architectural piece!
