Format is an Architecture and Materials Research Studio utilizing
spatial design and product-making to explore emergent concepts across
culturally-isolated disciplines. Format's work occurs in diverse teams
whose multi-faceted interests produce results greater than a simple sum of
its individual members' labor, and represents a new model for design intelligence.
Current projects include development of a fabrication process utilizing
traditional hot glass techniques with an online 3-d modeling user-interface
for crowd sourcing tumbler designs, research of quorum-sensing for its
potential architectural applications and collaboration with experts in the
field of driverless vehicles for increasing personal mobility while reducing
dependence on the single-user automobile.
Any idea how many of these can be produced using a 5lbs spool of ABS? I’m trying to use this montitization thing to entice my wife into letting me get a makerbot (ignoring initial investment of course).
