About Project

Imagine holding this captivating abstract flower that offers a unique tactile experience. With the advent of SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D printing technology, this imaginative creation has become a reality.

Using the versatile and flexible material known as Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), this flower embodies the perfect blend of artistry and functionality. SLS technology allows for intricate designs to be crafted, yielding hollowed structures with remarkable precision. While the raw finishing showcases the grainy texture and dark grey color of the TPU material, we dyed it into black as most clients usually require.

What sets this 3D-printed flower apart is its squeezable nature, providing a surprising tactile sensation. Gentle pressure transforms the flower, allowing it to bounce back and take on different shapes, evoking a sense of wonder and interaction. The combination of delicate aesthetics and engaging tactility makes it a truly unique art piece.

Solution

  • Step 1: Designing. The flower design was created using 3D modeling software, ensuring intricate details and hollowed structures were incorporated.
  • Step 2: Preparing the 3D Printer. The SLS 3D printer was calibrated and prepared for printing, with the TPU material loaded into the printer’s reservoir.
  • Step 3: Printing. The flower’s design was sliced into layers, and the SLS 3D printer selectively fused the TPU powder together, layer by layer, using a high-powered laser. This process repeated until the entire flower was formed.
  • Step 4: Cooling and Cleaning. Once the printing was complete, the flower was allowed to cool, ensuring its structural integrity. Excess powder was then carefully removed using appropriate cleaning techniques.
  • Step 5: Post-Processing. To achieve the desired finishing, the flower was rinsed in a black dye solution for minutes.
  • Step 6: Quality Assurance. The final product underwent rigorous quality checks to ensure accuracy, strength, and overall aesthetic appeal.
