  • PrintStool by Thorsten Franck for Wilkhahn

    Thorsten Franck recently presented his Stool Design for Wilkhahn Germany. Initially presented at NeoCon Chicago 2016 PrintStool was introduced to the European public at Orgatec Cologne 2016 and is essentially nothing more complicated than a classic biconical, egg-timer, shaped stool. A classic egg-timer shaped stool available with a selection of geometric patterns and which thanks to the form of the base gently rocks with the user. With PrintStool One, Wilkahn joined forces with designer Thorsten Franck to develop a dynamic...

  • Rob|Arch 2016 Sydney - spatially extruded structures

        Our current project together with ETH went to the annual Rob|Arch conference in Sydney and held a workshop called "Spatially Extruded Structures". The Material we provided was developed & optimized for robotic spatial extrusion.   Description: This workshop explored the generation of spatial frame structures extruded in midair.  Building upon the Mesh Mould research project developed at the ETH Zurich in close collaboration with Sika Technology AG  (Patent Publication No. WO/2015/034438) they explored the constraints and opportunities that come...

  • Graded Structures, ETH Zürich, 2015

      In order to be able to provide high quality filament, we constantly strive to further improve our products using state of the art technologies and manufacturing processes. We are currently supporting Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zürich with new 3D printing materials optimized for robotic spatial extrusion.   "During this semester, the students will explore the architectural potentials of robotic extrusion of spatial mesh structures. Typically, structures are assembled from discrete elements, such as, for example, concrete beams or timber...

  • 3ders.org & 3druck.com reporting about GreenTec

      Our new range of bio compounds (BDP) just has been featured by 3ders.org and 3druck.com. As the 3D printing community consumes vast amounts of plastics (and how many of those prints fail?), it’s always good to use 3D printer filaments that are biodegradable or that can be recycled. PLA is a great start, but is only completely biodegradable in bioreactors and specific laboratory conditions. Grinding units are another option: machines through which failed prints can be recycled into new...

    Unser PETG im Test - 3D-Druck Solingen

    Zitat: Bei unseren Recherchen zu 3D-Druck Materialien wurden wir anlässlich der diesjährigen EUROMOLD auf den Filamenthersteller Extrudr/FD3D GMBH und sein Material PETG aufmerksam. PETG würde, wie uns das Standpersonal versicherte,  positive Eigenschaften von PLA und ABS auf sich vereinigen. Für uns ein Grund, eine Rolle Filament käuflich zu erwerben.  Inzwischen sind wir auch dazu gekommen, es einmal auszuprobieren. Bei PETG handelst es sich um das Material PET  (Polyethylenterephthalat), das mit Glykol modifiziert wird.  Nach Angaben des Herstellers sorgen die niederviskosen Eigenschaften des Materials für ein...

  • Wieso PETG? Why PETG?

    -german- Wieso PETG?  PETG ist ein PET welches mit Glykol modifiziert wurde. Bei dieser Modifikation wird das PET  im aufgeschmolzenen Zustand flüssiger und kann somit im Spritzguss und zum 3D Drucken verwendet werden. Diese niederviskosen Eigenschaften ergeben ein gutes optisches Druckergebnis sowie eine fantastisch hohe Layerhaftung. Probleme mit dem Lösen von der Druckplatte minimieren sich, da das Material nur ca 0.5 % beim Abkühlen schrumpft und sich somit kaum verspannen und lösen kann Das Material verleiht den gedruckten Produkten eine:...
