Additive-mass-fabrication at Museum für Gestaltung Zurich
I developed a simple 3D-Printer Setup to fabricate thousands of my “Brio Flex Railtracks” during the “Building Worlds” Exhibition at Museum für Gestaltung from 15.07.2016 – 08.01.2017.

The “BrioFlex” Parts were printed on a piece of flexible spring-steel. By using the Z-movement of the printer to bend the spring-steel, the finished part got ejected and the process could start over.
With an optimized “BrioFlex” File, special PLA-hi (from Creamelt), a 0.8mm Nozzle and fast printing, it was possible to have a new, rigid “Brioflex” part very 10 Minutes!

An estimated 5000 parts were produced by an “Ultimaker 2+”.
