The 3D-print: NOW! exhibition shows what can be achieved with this innovative technique, from the production of everyday practical objects and extravagant fashion accessories, to food and even complete buildings. As the developments in 3D-printing are occurring at an exceedingly fast rate, it will also take a look at the future.
The dimensions of the hollow print strands are not only designed to carry weight, but also to save weight. An additional advantage of the robot arm is that it operates at higher speeds and at a higher level of energy-efficiency than standard 3D-printers. The Not only hollow chair is the name of the first prototypes that were produced using the hollow 3D-print. The chair is available in a limited edition. Van der Kooij developed this 3D-print technique himself and employs it to combine the production of series with the unique qualities of handcrafted products.
