  • Exhibition; Tesselations and Repetitive structures in Jewellery

    by Marianne Forrest

    An exhibition of Jewellery made with 3D printing techniques and digital technologies. Wild, wonderful and sometimes vibrant responses to the brief of Tesselations and Repetitive structures. The work shown is by students from London Metropolitan University using rapid prototyping for the first time. All are involved in their own style of creative process and are keen to show off their newest creations.

    Questions answered :
    How can new technologies be used to craete new jewellery previously impossible to make by hand? How does it answer the context of exhibition and wearability?

    At 9:00am to 3:30pm, Monday 21st May

  • The future is 3D: hands on design & make

    by Martin Stevens

    We plan to have a range of our equipment for students and teachers to try, allowing them to design in 3D, scan in 3D and print in 3D. If we have the space we will also have some manual and motorised kit tools (lathes, mills, sanders, jigsaws) for the pupils/students to try for themselves. We know from experience that when people have the chance to try our equipment they are enthused and motivated, and the only problem we have is getting them off the equipment so that others can have a go!

  • Table Top: Open design - science engagement

    by Robert Phillips

    The public are engaging with the process of manufacturing their own products through digital fabrication. When people have this much freedom to create their own objects, who has the responsibility for their disposal? Open design is embracing this democratisation of innovation and enabling people to make their own products with greater ease: this maker movement will soon change the way we think about products. This approach is not a replacement for mass manufacture but an extension of what is achievable with a new toolbox, solving different problems and addressing new needs. These digital tools are enabling participants with limited skill to create objects… but are they products yet?

    Questions answered :
    Engaging with a wider audience, widening participation, the ability to bounce concepts off a wider audience and predictions of how this could work in the future.

    Smile Machine are a digital production agency based in the heart of Shoreditch. We build websites and apps and have steadily grown in size since our inception in 2010 and are proud to work with a number of agencies and direct clients in London. We know the importance of robust technical implementation to backup good design and user experience. We like to say we’re two thirds tech and one third creative - a good balance we think. We’d like to tell you a bit about us and what we do.

  • How to be pixel perfect.

    by Matt Gypps

    Pixels are the building blocks of all the visual design we do here at ustwo™, but are so often relegated to mere afterthought in the excitement of working with colours and styles. We believe in inducting all our designers into the school of pixels with our Pixel Perfect Precision™ (PPP™) guide. The aim of this showcase is to bring to everyone’s attention the PPP™ document and to give pixels the care and attention they deserve, to make sure we get the simple things right.

    Questions answered :
    How to be pixel perfect when designing?

    At 12:25pm to 12:30pm, Friday 1st June
