How Its Made

Rapid prototyping

Life of a 3d printed object starts from making of a visual model created in 3d modelling software like Rhinoceros. The properties and characteristics of a model are then carefully checked for flaws to make sure it is suitable for the specifications of the printer. Once the printed has received the model, is applies multuple layers of nylon powder to build the object up layer by layer. Final result is a strong, light and hardwearing object which can be dyed, spray painted and assembeled into a piece of jewellery.

3D printing allows me to create large scale pieces in a controlled and presice way, while still being able to add an element of distortion without ruining the object's geometric perfection.
