Three Cubes Colliding – 3D Printed Kite

It almost looks unreal – like a camera tracking test or something to superimpose 3D geometry into a real shot. I like that sort of ethereal effect in design. There is a very small list of things that exist that you look at and wonder how the shapes arrived at that particular configuration. I don’t know too much about kites, so I’d be really interested how they figured out the triangle pattern they used.

In any event, it’s a really cool triumph of 3D printing being used in a practical, real world application instead of flimsy models that would later be cast in something stronger. If you can eliminate that 2nd step of the process and cut straight to strong, easily made materials it would have a really good impact on how we make everything in society.

Awesome work, Queen and Crawford
