Custom Rostock 3D Printer Makes Use of IKEA Components

After discovering 3D printers, Turi had to make one. This past summer he did, and it looks fantastic.

He chose the Rostock design not only because it can print big parts quickly, but also because of its mesmerizing operation. 3D printers are generally fun to watch for the first few minutes, but Rostocks tend to have an even more robotic appeal in the motion of its end effector (robotics lingo for tool head).

The cool part of this build is [Turi's] choice of enclosure. He had an IKEA cabinet collecting dust in his basement, so he decided to make use of its drawers for the main structure of the Rostock.

Salón de Madrid: Fiat Ducato Truckster

La verdad es que es difícil describir al Fiat Ducato Truckster. Este modelo conceptual está basado en la nueva furgoneta de Fiat (aunque no lo parezca) y es el fruto del trabajo realizado por el centro de diseño del fabricante italiano, Bosch, Behr GmbH, SEWS Cabind y Denso Thermal Systems. Su impresionante diseño, más propio de una nave de Star Trek que de un vehículo comercial del fabricante italiano, esconde una jaula antivuelco, asientos de competición, volante y arneses Sabelt. Cero concesiones a la comodidad, casi como un camión de carreras. Si lo llegan a pintar de verde lima y le ponen más vinilos podrían meterlo en The Fast and the Furious 4 y no desentonaría lo más mínimo.

Interior Motives shared a bottle of fizzy water with Salvatore Cacciatore, head of design research at Fiat Concept Lab and instigator of the Fiat Pixel Project…

“The best conceptual work is always that which can be related to people. Involving our designers sharing the ideas developed at the Royal College of Art is the main thing. Then the next time our designers sketch a Fiat, they too will be influenced by Pixel”.

RCA students design transport for 2015

Salvatore Cacciatore, head of design research at Fiat’s Concept Lab, said: “This project is part of Fiat’s design research system and we know that at the RCA we can ask the most challenging questions because the academic quality is high enough for students to be able to interpret and express complexity in interdisciplinary ways. With this project we’re looking at the future for design disciplines. Perhaps transport designers of the future will be better able to blur the boundaries between disciplines.”

Initially, in fact, the idea was to base the new Fiat Panda production model on the Ecobasic concept car that had been presented in late 1999 as a proposed replacement for the Seicento…

The Ecobasic was an environmentally-friendly prototype that combined research-based aerodynamic efficiency with the use of recyclable materials and a parsimonious engine. It also featured a decidedly unconventional design, in which a number of structural elements were deliberately left “unclothed” for aesthetic effect.

Fiat really doesn’t want to build one of the most exciting small car concepts to be seen for many moons?…

…designer Salvatore Cacciatore has thrown conventional shut-line wisdom into the River Po and has used a mixture of textures to disguise the slight colour variations and huge gaps in the pre-impregnated body panels.
