“A big thing about 3D printing is not what it does, but what it enables”
- Sylvain Preumont, founder of iMakr
Explore the changing design environment and find out how the ways we design, produce and consume are becoming increasingly altered, fuelled by a wave of new digital technologies.
Using a 3D Printed Jewellery Vending Machine, see how students from the Design Centre, Enmore, are leading the way for jewellery consumers to become jewellery creators.
With a 3D printer in every home, consumers will be able to design and think for their own needs. Production or manufacturing won’t be replaced, instead consumerism will develop into a culture of customisation.
Creating a 3D Printed Jewellery Vending Machine taps into this idea about design futures – people want a product that they can pick up and take with them, as well as the ability to generate, purchase or customise the design.
Join the Jewellery and Object Design (JOD) students as they present their ideaWould you? – a theme based on questions including Would you wear 3D printed design?
