3D printed structure for Next Architects

FOC FOR   3.May.2010

Freedom Of Creation was approached by NEXT architects to create an exact replica of an existing roof structure for a scale model. NEXT Architects needed to include the existing building structure in their model. But how to create such a complex structure quickly and precisely?

3D printing was the answer, the parts were drawn by NEXT architects and produced in one of our Laser Sintering systems. Each of the beam sections is only 1mm in thickness. Combining the 3D printed parts with the traditional maquette built by Made by mistake, NEXT Architects created a fabulous model.


Julian designs scale model for Helen Dowling Institute

FOC FOR   14.Mar.2010

Freedom Of Creation designed a scale model for the new housing of the Helen Dowling Institute, an institute supporting people with cancer. Julian Sing came up with the idea to turn the scale model into a interactive piece, where the packaging of the model functions as a base to place it on.

The scale model serves as a giveaway for all parties involved in the realization of the project, a small series of 100 pieces has been produced with selective laser sintering technology.
