About the course

The third and fourth ("Industry 4.0") industrial revolutions (including open-source code-based hardware and software, automation, non-linear decentralized upon-demand production, and AM additive manufacturing) constitute a new and sustainable approach to production and consumption forces that shifted the values and perspective we apply regarding cultural norms and the interrelations of content and its use. 

In a world of networks and connectivity where ideas can immediately be adapted to suit the changing needs, desires, and whims of anonymous end users, the boundaries have blurred. The holy trinity of designer-manufacturer-consumer is now put to the test as local and global communities alike employ digital production methods through open source codes, bypassing centralized policies and regulations, and avoiding complex logistics. This has decentralized manufacturing and distribution and has brought profound changes in political-technological dynamics of the 21st century while planet Earth and humankind face ongoing health and ecological crises, the impact and implications of which no one can predict.

Crutch set for Israeli National Soccer Team amputees

Our design uses 3-D printing for the National Israel Football team members that have lost limbs. Our goal was to change the treatment and medical approach to crutches, empower players with an added element to their crutches that help during the game, and also raise morale and team cohesion with team logo and colors. This makes the crutches an integral part of the uniform. We created a 3-iten set that includes an arm lock mechanism, support braces, and crutch carrier. The arm lock provides stability for players as they hold the crutch firmly in place when in motion, the support braces provide flexibility, bolster sprinting power and are designed with spikes for added stability and friction, and the carrier is used during travel and when players wish to use their prosthetic limbs or need room for an additional set of crutches.

Supplementary printing for archeological findings

Each era boasts its own technological achievements, but some manufacturing methods have managed to keep their relevancy. Our project offers a combination, or perhaps a struggle between old and new, focused on different jug/pitcher production methods.
Since the dawn of civilization, clay pottery jugs have been created. These are seen across the world in museums and are one of the most identifiable and familiar archeological artifacts that link us to our past as a species, and we are often amazed at the precision and effort required to make each individual jug and how they are associated with every historical period.
In today's world, we have innovative methods that enable a level of complexity and creativity unimaginable by our artisan ancestors. In fact, current technologies can even recreate the pieces of history time has erased.
When observing our object, please us yourselves whether 3-D printing can compete with traditional methods? Does it support those old approaches? Supplement them? Are these new ways better? Or worse?

Application of FDM technology in bars

In this project we want to examine the application of FDM printing in bars. Following review as mapping existing problems and opportunities in the bar setting, we designed a tiltable (standard size) cup stand. This produced a full cocktail serving performance as cups could be tilted and refilled.

Tin figurines using the dying PLA technology

After learning all of the course toolbox, we decided our project would focus on restoration. We began by researching and discovering many relevant products and narrowed the field to figures of Greek mythology, specifically a reconstruction using traditional restoration methodologies. This entailed selection of molds, printing options, PLA melting, and tin casts in a manufacturing process that enabled us to instill our message of protest into the figurines, speaking directly to viewers.

An infrastructure for building plant-based garden furniture by optimizing eco-advantages and avoiding the pollution usually associated with furniture production. We designed joints that allow users to control plant growth, directing it to the desired shape.

Cooling your fingers

We developed a cooling system for fingers using 3-D printing. This system addresses one effect of chemotherapy undergone by women suffering from breast cancer by numbing and cooling nerve endings during treatments. Our design emphasizes women's empowerment in the color choice and dimensions of user experience.

Printing organs

Our project focused on veterinary medicine and the desire to avoid the ethical dilemma posed by practical veterinary procedures on real animals during training. This is why we chose to use 3-D printing to create artificial practice organs converted from 2-D CT files.
