Stunning chair made entirely with a 3Doodler 3D printing pen
What’s the most intricate thing you’ve ever created with a 3D printing pen? Were you ambitious enough to try out an Eiffel Tower model? Or perhaps you stuck to simple 3D boxes? Either way, Jungsub Shim has considerably raised the bar.
Shim is a Korean designer who decided to focus on “connection” for her woodworking and design project at the Hongik University in Seoul. With this concept in mind, she created a unique and beautiful chair with a 3Doodler printing pen.
With the pen, Shim was able to draw in mid-air, with the molten plastic filament solidifying shortly after extrusion. The final “Connect chair” is intricate, but it’s not just for decoration — you can also sit on it. The lattice-like frame is strong enough to take your weight.
Mimicking the automation of a machine, Shim built up the chair line by line using repetitive motions with the 3Doodler pen, a device which extrudes melted plastic filament that solidifies in mid air.
"It resembles what most modern people do at work," explained the designer. ”
Like the work done by factory workers in the industrial world, or the monks training themselves in prayer through the same movement every day.” Shim, a student at the Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea, undertook the 3D chair project as part of a woodworking and furniture design course.
