3D Print of the Week

3D print of the week: elevator shaft as recreation space, for architecture design studio project

This week’s featured print is a graduate student’s final physical model for ARCH70, “Design Studio V,” at Penn Design.   It features the concept of the elevator shaft of the residential tower being extended into the foundation of the building and turned into a recreation space.  The project components were printed in three different materials, using three different 3D printers.

The model was picked up for the exhibition ‘ON MODELS‘ held at the Philomathean Art Gallery at the end of January, 2019.  The exhibition addressed questions such as, “what is the role of the model in architecture?” and “how does color, form and texture emerge from content to influence architecture?”

printed in ABS plastic on the Stratasys uPrint SE Plus, clear resin on the Formlabs, and PLA on the Ultimaker 3 Extended
