As usual, things are busy-busy at the Factory! Machines are humming and metal is pouring! Here are few quick shots of works in progress, samples, and other goodies!
The truly fascinating aspect of this concept is the usage of software for the design process – which is driven by a bio-mimicry technique to generate this flowing intertwined form – not unlike the virtual nature-inspired algorithmic designs of Somerville, MA based Nervous System. The form is captivating, as is the color and tone of that bronze…Call us impressed.
Inspired by our founder Scott Baxter’s first entrepreneurial venture of wallpapering, we wanted to seek out wallpapers that related to our world of metal and patina. And then we happened to stumble across this lovely new wallpaper from Brooklyn, NY based Calico Wallpaper.
We think of our old gold or satin burnished brass finishes upon seeing this. So beautiful…we want it!
The lugs, bottom bracket, dropouts, and stem are all fabricated using this fascinating additive digital process.
Beautiful golden color, interesting design detail, and cutting edge fabrication technology? What’s not to love?
As discussed here, we use 3D printing here at SA Baxter to develop custom prototypes quickly for internal development, as well as for our clients’ bespoke needs. ¡Viva la 3D Printing Revolución!
