• Project Introduction:

This structural art installation takes the morning glory as the prototype, and builds the bamboo reticulated shell structure shaped like a flower on the 3D printed column shaped like a torus. By combining traditional handicraft skills with modern construction technology, it interprets the beauty of the fusion of the two construction methods , It also expresses the respect and inheritance of traditional skills in the era of technological explosion.

  • Team Introduction:

This project is completed by teachers and students majoring in Architecture and Civil Engineering of South China University of Technology.

  • Production company:

The 3D printing part of this device was produced by IEMAI 3D, an industrial-grade 3D printing equipment manufacturer headquartered in Dongguan.

In this project, the industrial-grade 3D printing equipment manufacturer IEMAI 3D used the new granular material 3D printing equipment FAST-JET-1500 for printing production. During the process, the design team continued to iterate the design and optimize the parameters according to the actual effect. , and finally completed the project within a week.

The use of 3D printing of pellet materials for digital construction has the advantages of high efficiency and low cost. Through parametric design and advanced production methods, the presentation of the final product can be made more distinctive.

In addition,IEMAI Smart has started to try 3D printing of recyclable pellet materials, which will play a key role in sustainable development and plastic restriction.

3D printing and art design will definitely establish a profound relationship. The presentation of art design is inseparable from 3D printing. This is not the first time that IEMAI’s pellet 3D printing solution has cooperated with universities/designers, nor will it be the last time. At the current stage, it is still necessary for manufacturers to maintain close communication with the design team, to carry out design iterations for the production method of 3D printing, and to optimize parameters according to the design method and material characteristics.

We welcome more designers/teams/enterprises/academies to contact us and work together to promote digital manufacturing of art design.
