ENTANGLEMENT

“Entanglement” soars above the BTCIS Atrium in the new Billie Tisch Center for Integrated Sciences at Skidmore College (NY). The 340kg sculpture turns and twists impossibly in midair, like a giant open knot or a mobius strip that leads the eye in endless movement around its sinewy curves. As a viewer moves beneath the sculpture, its painted steel shimmers and its colours transform from gold to green to blue.

THE WHALE PASS

“The Whale Pass”, is a set of three large-scale pieces of artwork, designed by Paolo Albertelli and Mariagrazia Abbaldo (Studio C&C).

The three parts have been printed using MX3D’s largest printing cell in portions as tall as three meters, assembled into one of the biggest artworks fabricated by WAAM. As an example, the head has an impressive height of nearly five meters. The texture resembles the texture of the skin of a real whale.

ART WORK

HAGOROMO BENCH

The “Hagoromo Benches” are designed for Takenaka Corporation based in Japan to show the potential of digital fabrication. The Hagoromo bench embodies the space with a free and creative mind, and its continuous shape matches various postures and induces diverse actions by a thin surface.

The Hagoromo bench is printed in 308L stainless steel, and the surface consists of single thin walls. This project showcases the potential of WAAM for interior design.

DRAGON BENCH

The “Dragon Bench“, designed by Joris Laarman Lab, is produced by MX3D with Robotic WAAM by applying the patented dot printing strategy.

By adding small amounts of molten metal at a time, MX3D prints double-curved lines in mid-air without the need for supporting structures.

GRADIENT SCREEN

This experimental sculptural work is part of a collection of sculptural screens in varying sizes, geometries, and materials.

The computationally generated aesthetics of the screens are pleasing to the eye and push the boundaries of 3D printing technology.

TRESSE TOWER

“MX3D has the technique, new language, and open intelligence to understand this very complex mathematical but also emotional sculpture. Robots, programmed by qualified people, close the gap between pure thought and the creation of the object with absolute respect.”- Ricardo Regazzoni

The 4-meter tall “Tresse Tower” is fully 3D printed stainless steel, and the tips are polished and gold-plated in post-production.

APPLICATION

CUCUYO BAR

Cucuyo is an outdoor bar at the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) for STARR Catering Group. The work was made in collaboration with Miami base architects BBA. The final assembled piece is 20 feet long, 12 feet wide and 9 feet high.

“It was a challenge to design a piece that was not only lightweight and easily disassembled for relocation but also fully functional,” notes Claudia Busch, Founding Principal of Berenblum Busch Architects. “That is why we decided to work with MX3D on manufacturing this project. Their unique technology allowed the construction of this site-specific piece that meets all structural requirements while seamlessly fitting into the PAMM environment.”

ARC BIKES

MX3D has printed two lightweight bikes in aluminum and stainless steel. These projects show that with the MX3D printing process, a custom bicycle can go from idea to end product incredibly fast.

The designs are produced by generative design software to tailor-fit the proportions of the rider’s body. The aluminium Arc Bike II customized frame has been printed with MetalXL within 24 hours.
