About this Product

As an architectural student, our time to work on a design was often limited. For the final presentation we always needed to make a scaled model. Time to work on the model was scarce, so was the design’s complexity. As a result, the architectural creations we made, were often quite simple in form. The moment I discovered Shapeways, a new world opened. Designing complex structures became more appealing than ever. From that moment 3d printed models became part of the design process. But sometimes after seeing the printed models, new ideas for changes reached the surface. With the high-resolution Form 1 printer, designing and printing could become a synchronous process. Physical scale models could be studied, improved and adapted. That’s how I could use this high-resolution Form 1 printer in my work as a designer and architect. Shapeways could then, afterwards, provide the final full-scale model. At this time I’m studying an additional master in engineering. Next year I’m doing a thesis about the usability of additive manufacturing in the civil engineering industry and the connection with finite element analysis (FEA) software. With the high-resolution Form 1 printer my research in this matter would be much more efficient and vigorous! And the tests would become real and alive resulting in faster and more inspiring solutions!! Many thanks, Gieljan
