» 九十四種3D列印卡榫任你下載!還在等什麼?

在Thingiverse上由日本設計師Kenji Kanasaki,製作整合了多達94種的3D列印卡榫,免費的的提供大家下載研究使用,這套Japanese Wood Joint在Thingiverse已經被下載了一萬多次,看來真的很受大家喜愛,對於卡榫應用有研究的的朋友,絕對不要錯過這套下載。 這讓小編想起之前,也有個越南工程師也將多達1700種機械機構與大家分享,小編在此對兩位神人至上最高敬意! 全部印完可真不得了。 Thingiverse上已經被下載一萬多次了。 (點我連結) 博也田中實驗室 – 慶應大學 ▲所有影音圖像內容版權歸該單位所有。 PACKAGING & DIELINES: The Designer's Book of Packaging Dielines by Design Packaging Inc.

Gallery: Using design to build a community

Raised in Burkina Faso, though he’s now based in Berlin, Kéré is always keen to include community-oriented spaces that invite people to sit down and engage in thoughtful conversation. The central nature of community is a concept he has borrowed from Burkinabe tradition, and it’s one that plays a fundamental role in his design thinking. His architecture is pragmatic yet quietly playful, driven by a desire to make the most of (sometimes minimal) local resources.

So what does he think makes a great community space? One where there’s something for everyone to do what they like, whether that’s sit down, lie back or just be. A school for the people, by the people. 507 Mechanical Movements. Prusa i3 Improved for laser cut by twelvepro. We found latest Prusa i3 printer design, the one Josef Prusa showed at Makerfaire this year in New York, for its elegant simplicity, but hinge like connection between Y axis assembly and frame needed improvement, in our opinion.

Prusa i3 Improved for laser cut by twelvepro

Using CAD software we reworked Prusa i3 design: Laser cut frame was stiffen by adding two angle members connected to the rear side of Y axis assembly. Original, printed Z Axis mounting parts proven to be easy to break, which is why we replaced them with stronger laser cut parts. Ball-Nogues Studio. From the Museum of Modern Art Press Release: The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center present an installation in P.S.1's outdoor courtyard by Los Angeles-based firm Ball-Nogues, led by Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues, winner of the eighth annual MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program.

Ball-Nogues Studio

The competition invites emerging architects to propose an installation for the courtyard of P.S.1 in Long Island City, Queens. The objective of the Young Architects Program is to identify and provide an outlet for emerging young talent in architecture, an ongoing mission of both MoMA and P.S.1. Lifeobject. LifeObject is a material exploration of the relationships between the artificial and the natural in the future built environment.


Its starting point is nature’s iconic model of a home - the bird’s nest; an assembly of weak and light found materials with no additional joints or glue, out of which emerges a free-form complex structure that is extremely light, robust and highly resilient. Through an experimental process of scientific analysis, coding, material research and design, LifeObject transposes the resilient properties of a bird’s nest into an architectural form. From this material system, a new matter-structure emerges - a volumetric porous material that is lighter than feathers, a free-form structure that is stable yet flexible. 1400 rods, ranging from 1 cm to 5 cm in diameter, covering approx. 27.13 cubic meters.

Adaptive Folding Structure – Thomas Diewald. Adaptive Soft Structure. Techtextil the 12th Student Competition “Textile Structures for New Building 2013”/ 2nd Prize in the Macro Architecture Category Design for an adaptive soft facade system took as its inspiration the nodes of grass stems.

Adaptive Soft Structure

These were taken as the starting point to explore how variations in geometry might be achieved through small variations in pressure in single or multiple inflated chambers attached to initially planar elastic surfaces stiffened by flexible splines. Through design and experiment it was shown how, depending on the number and position of pneumatic cells, both anticlastic and synclastic configurations might be obtained. With a mounting system and additional infilling of flexible tensioned membranes, a prototype adaptable façade was designed and investigated with digital and physical models.

The combination of an advanced structural material with a common building wrap creates new opportunities for a “soft structure.” Structural systems are traditionally designed to be “hard” enough to counteract dynamic weather forces.

As a centrepiece of the V&A’s Engineering Season it demonstrates how architectural design can unfold from a synergy of structural engineering, environmental engineering and production engineering, resulting in unique spatial and aesthetic qualities.
