Tiny parts for a vinyl record cutter by Kris Catteau
Printing with leftover bits of filament creates a chaotic multicolored object
A quick & dirty rigging method to animate 3D scans here
Three bio pigment samples. The rightmost one is made with a regular pigmented filament. This is a collaboration with Maria Boto from the bio-color lab. Currently on display at the "Kleureyck Van Eyck’s Colours in Design" exibition in Design Museum Ghent.
An experiment to make the robot arm collect scattered objects on the floor.

Relief sculpture by Kamiel De Waal
Footware design samples by Catherine Willems and Aisha Kuijk
Leonie Montjarret - speculative plant experiments
Resting Pad (for putting on shoes) - Maya Onzia
Hybrid object by Pepa Ivanova with human hair infused PLA
Ventrilio - Jerry Galle

3D printed textile experiment by Giovanni Franzoni.
Assembled tuning mechanism for a mandolin, by Mattias Wielfaert.
Pepa Ivanova printed a thin landscape-like membrane in UV-sensitive material. If she points a UV torch at the object, it quickly turns a bright pink. For a picture of the print in bright sunlight, check Instragram #formlab_ghent.
A collet made on a resin printer turns a vinyl cutter into a pen plotter.
A first test-print with beeswax. At 30°C the wax is a paste that extrudes cleanly, but the layers don't stick to each other. When heating the wax higher the layers stick well, but the extrusion becomes unreliable.
New work in the Fraktur series in progress. By Jonas Dehnen
A scanned wine branch by Kris Catteau.
Testing 3D printed reference target-spheres for terrestrial LiDar scanning.
Kris Catteau doesn't want do drum anymore. He's automating his set with solenoids.
