Top 1: A 3D printed robot to automate deliveries
Bastian Solutions has designed a robotic arm that can pick up orders and deliver them independently. In this way, it hopes to speed up the whole process. The project teams worked with the 3D Fast Radius printing service, which 3D printed 45% of the robot. Thanks to HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology, 3D printed parts could be quickly produced while maintaining high complexity and strength.
Top 2: Impressive 3D printed art structure, Conifera
During the Furniture Fair currently being held in Milan, the French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani and the COS studio designed an impressive 3D printed structure. It is made up of various blocks of three different colours: the translucent sections are made from PLA in its purest form, while the white parts contain a pigment and the brown ones are made from wood pulp. The inspiration comes from trees and conifers, explains the artist:
Top 3: Unsmashable guitar designed by Sandvik
We told you about it a few days ago: Sandvik created an unbreakable guitar! By mixing subtractive manufacturing processes and 3D printing, the company has created a very designer instrument that is impossible to break regardless of the force used by the artist. Discover the whole history of the project in the video below:
Top 4: Artist Silvia Weidenbach is the first V&A Gilbert Collection resident
