3Drafter Minecraft X 3D Printer 4 months project
Time is of the essence.
Despite of the speed how quickly a 3D printer produces a print, users of a 3D printer request faster production speed.
Qualities from different printing profile
Qualities of a print widely rely on the profiles the prints start with. Different result of a same model could vary widely based on the oreientation on the print bed.
The first layer matters
The success rate of a print heavily relies on the first layer of the print. The print is 90% certain of a sucessful print if the first couple layers are well printed.
The majority of desktop 3D printer users print prototypes on the printer in despite of how well the printer is capable of highly finished prints.
• Intuitive 3D modeling method is as simple as picking and placing. • Gameplay is encouraging for all levels of users to start 3D modeling. • Blocky graphic style is ideal for prototype models. • Entertainment is combined with creativity.

Air suction tube
Air suction rack
The air suction tube performs “pick and place” mechanisms by utilizing a air suction motor built in the 3D printer. Then, the air suction rack heats up the plastic block material and assemble the blocks when they become adhesive.

One Stool Designed for 6 weeks project
±0 is a brand of the “just right” symbol. As the brand name suggests, their design is just right as if nothing can be taken away or added to the design.
The concept of One Stool is to design a stool that will create a visual illusion that the seating piece is floating in the air.
One Stool 12” x 12” x 18”
The design of One Stool concentrates on the harmonous hints of a stool. Details such as the double layers suggest the users to pick up the stool from the gaps.
The opening holes on the second layer of the seat piece hint the impressions of a floating layer disconnected from the first piece. However, the tiny supports inside the opening make the second layer a support piece preventing the legs from tipping.
Besides sitting, what is the other major action done to a stool? The answer is relocating the stool.
