Printing in Paper.. its here at Freedom Of Creation

FOC FOR   5.Nov.2009

Freedom Of Creation has been exploring the field of 3D printing for nearly a decade. We have been pioneering the future of rapid manufacturing design goods and bringing customization to the masses. One of the promising technologies that will bring lots of new opportunities to 3D printing, is printing in paper.

MCOR has been exploring this technology for several years and with the presentation of the matrix 300 printer it’s becoming reality. Freedom Of Creation is one of the first to print a FreshFiber iPhone cover in colored layers of paper. For the first time the layering effect of 3D printing is actually adding value to the finish and look and feel of a product.

Julian Sing designs scale model of Concert Hall

FOC FOR   23.Oct.2009

FOC’s Imagineering department collaborated with Aldo Vos and Gabri Klarenbeek from Broekbakema architects, to translate their 2D ideas into the design of a 3D scale model.
We started by converting their 2D CAD files into a digital 3D model of a Concert Hall in Windschoten. After that the environment of the building was brought to life by adding nature and people to it. The model was split in two so it could more easily illustrate the layout and concept to the viewer.
The model was completely laser sintered including fine details like people at a 1:200 scale

“For us it was a new method. We were surprised by the result, specially the level of detail. It  is very impressive!”
