The name of the event and projects comes from the 3Discover.it’s initiative to organize an event mixing design, software and hardware through 3D printing revolution. We thought that Synthesis’ name fits because it refers to a combination of some entities that together form something new.
We considered to find the best geometric shape that represented the synergies of the event, and we thought in the soap bubbles, where assembling several bubbles results in a foam, and the soap bubbles usually last for only a few seconds before bursting, in some way as this temporary creative event.
All our custom projects for the event was focused around bubbles concept.
Design / Process
Our new works for the event were created using Autodesk’s Apps such as Meshmixer and the XFAB, a new Stereolithography 3D printer produced by DWS.
