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...

Today we spotlight a group within the Digital Assemblies class within the Design of University of Utah, both to showcase their work and better contextualize and explain the thinking behind the experimental material(s) they created using the Filabot EX2, and the design of the lamp shades printed using the Massive Dimension Pellet Head Extruder.  Drawing upon two distinct but complementary design prompts – for-loops and aleatory methods – this group brainstormed ways to utilize their experimental material in creating a simple lamp. “Thinking about for-loops, [we] thought of how they work in code. Given some parameter that is true, the code will keep...

  We had previously mentioned our collaboration between binaryslc, Filabot and Massive Dimension in sponsoring the fall 2020 Digital Assemblies course, instructed by Milad H. Mozari, in the Multi-Disciplinary Design Program at the University of Utah.  The last several weeks have involved exploration and experimentation with materials and creating filament using the Filabot EX2  You can read about the collaboration up to now on the Filabot website by clicking the link below: Click here to see all Filabot posts related to the University of Utah/ Binary collaboration. For several weeks, students in the Digital Assemblies class had been patiently awaiting the chance to realize their designs at full scale using...
