Experiments, Massive Dimension, MDPH2, Pellet Head Extruder, University of Utah binary Collab -

IMPORTANT NOTE: Going forward the posts related to our collaboration with binary and the University of Utah will be posted only on the Filabot website as Filabot products will be featured/used. Next week, the students transition to a second class project that combines filament extrusion on the Filabot EX2 with subtractive fabrication methods. To follow the story please go to the Filabot website and join the email list and/or follow our social media accounts. ------------------- Our fourth and final spotlight for the the Design of University of Utah Digital Assemblies class showcases their aleatory-inspired final product, as well as the magnetic experimental materials and large-format prints...

Experiments, Massive Dimension, MDPH2, Pellet Head Extruder, University of Utah binary Collab -

Today the spotlight shines on another group within the Design of University of Utah Digital Assemblies class to showcase their final product as well as design efforts behind the experimental materials  and large-format prints created using the Filabot EX2 and the Massive Dimension Pellet Head Extruder. Choosing the design prompt of “Tactile Communication”, this group designed their experimental material using turmeric as their additive to the post-industrial recycled PETG. “We arrived on the additive material of turmeric because it would be malleable enough to snap into place, translucent enough to allow light to penetrate, and a soft enough color that it won’t disrupt...

Today the spotlight shines on a second group within the Design of University of Utah Digital Assemblies class to showcase their final product as well as design efforts behind the experimental material(s) they created using the Filabot EX2, and the lamp shades printed using the Massive Dimension Pellet Head Extruder. Using the design prompt of Tactile Communication, this group designed their experimental material using an additive (Chromazone Black-Pink by Atlanta Chemical) that changes color in response to thermal changes to the material. Quickly moving through hand-sketched ideas (image 2) and simple paper models (image 3), the group finally landed on a...
