Maker Faire 2015

250x250

ITA: Per il terzo anno consecutivo Design for Craft sarà presente alla Maker Faire, il più importante spettacolo dell’innovazione al mondo. Quest’anno l’evento si svolgerà dal 16 al 18 ottobre 2015 a “La Sapienza” Università di Roma che diventerà, per l’occasione, una vera e propria “città del futuro”.
Mostreremo i risultati delle nostre esperienze di innovazione nei processi e nei materiali, destinati alla digitale manufacturing e non solo. In primis Smoothbot; una macchina desktop per maker e artigiani in grado di eliminare l’effetto superficiale microrigato, tipico della stampa 3d e della manifattura additiva in generale.
Mycelia, invece, è un programma di ricerca per applicazioni produttive innovative pienamente biocompatibili grazie all’utilizzo dei miceli...

3D Print HUB 2015

Our speech at the 3D Print Hub

We’re back from the 3D Print Hub 2015 in Milan, the main event for the professional 3D printing in Italy. This edition was very full of exhibitors and interested visitors; the main focus has been on the professional applications of 3D printing.

Design for Craft has attended showing the results of two real case studies with the aim of explaining how the technological approach towards the digital manufacturing can have an effective role on how products are designed, manufactured and marketed. We have also been asked to tell the state of the art of innovative materials of 3d printing FDM in our public speech “POLYMERS FOR CUSTOM 3D PRINTING”. For those interested, we’ll be present also at the next 3D Print Hub at MECSPE in Parma on March 26 to 28, considered the main event in Italy for the w...

3D Printing the “Uomo Vitruviano”

Uomo Vitruviano

In Design for Craft we observe carefully the potential and the evolution of 3D printing. One of the scenarios where this technology can play an important role is in the cultural heritage communication in which the humanistic approach can be a valuable tool for knowledge (survey, conservation and restoration) and its disclosure thanks to digital reproduction’s technologies.
The traveling exhibition-show “Perfecto e Virtuale” offers the visitor the discovery of the Vitruvian Man in its deep and huge significance through new technological devices and innovative experiences. One of these experiences is the knowledge of the Vitruvian Man as an object in its three dimensions thanks to the techniques of digital prototyping.
Design for Craft is one of the technological partners of the exhibition; ...

On July 18, was held in Marzocca (on the Adriatic coast of Italy), the fourth edition of the “Demanio Marittimo”, a one-night of culture under the stars at the seaside in which architects, designers, creatives and enthusiasts gather to discuss until ‘dawn.
Design for Craft was a guest with Denis Santachiara and Ronen Kadushin; we entertained the audience with some interesting news of 3D printing. Our speech, in particular, has been centered on the new research scenarios that open in the contact between architecture and technologies of “cold extrusion” in 3d printing.

MAKE K-IT: a new event’s format for our 3D Hubs meetings

Jesplease

Yes, we think global and we act local. Now we introduce a new event’s format:  MAKE K-IT, “Make your personal factory”. We’ll try to spread the maker’s culture through workshops for the construction of machines and instruments useful to develop innovative ideas and projects. These events will be held with the collaboration of the main 3d printer’s producers in Italy. The first workshop will be held in Jesi, near the SAS (Studio for Arts Press, via Valle 3), the 21 th June from 10 to 18:30. The key-player of this first day will be the KIWI-3D printer, produced by SHAREBOT, a leading company in Italy for printers 3D. KIWI-3D is designed specifically for FabLabs, workshops and geeks.
