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.

FOC celebrates the fall of Berlin wall

FOC general  29.Oct.2009

FOC collaborates with rooms-Interior and its German distributor Now is Here, to create a special exhibition. It celebrates the 20 year unity of Germany and the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. The dates for the exhibition at rooms-Interior in Berlin are from 17 November – 2 January. For this special occasion Janne Kyttanen designed in co-operation with Stefan Schad a limited edition of custom lights in remembrance of the fall of the Berlin wall. These lights will be sold exclusively by rooms-Interior in Berlin.

A 3D printer will be installed at this event to produce FOC designs at rooms-Interior in Berlin. FOC is a true pioneer in designing with 3D printing technologies therefore this is very exciting, as it is the very first event for FOC showing the 3D print process by installing 3D printers on a retail location. Having production happening on the spot and people being able to interact and customize the products on the fly is truly innovative. We are true believers of people having 3D printers at their homes in the future and this marks the first step for FOC in this direction.

During the event Janne Kyttanen will also design products on the fly (Like Bob Ross, but now in 3D), give a workshop (November 18th 19:00-21:00) and a presentation of the work from FOC on Wednesday,  18 November. You can register for this event and get more detailed information here.

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!”

Adformatie is a Dutch weekly magazine focusing on the advertisement, marketing and media industries. Janne Kyttanen talks about the importance of what designing with 3D printing technologies can mean for the advertisement industry. They can now with relative ease, extreme speed, flexibility and low investments launch more cross media campaigns featuring real products rather than only focus on traditional media such as print, tv and web.
