The company we are collaborating with manufactures furniture and other household items by large scale 3D-printing. At that scale, there are visible edges for each printed layer. Our product eliminates those edges by rolling each side, just behind the nozzle – the material comes out flattened on the sides, and eliminates the appearance of layers. “Eftersläpet” uses motors to move 360 degrees around the nozzle to ensure even distribution of force. This increases the structural integrity of the created item on top of being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
All the pieces was drawn in inventor and was able to be manufactured in our labs at BTH.
