FabLab Faenza and me

FabLab Faenza is a open place, run by group young designers, where it’s possible to work over own designs. Especially, they are interested in 3d printers, and their headquarters is next to the Museo Carlo Zauli, where I work, So I thought, ” why not to try and make a 3d printed model?”

For the good start, I decided to find out if different proportions would be better to produce and to use my aloe cup. Printing the model was ok. Then, while creating the molds from the 3d printed models, I thought that working with plaster is easier. The lined surface had to be polish with some toxic resin and then polish by hand, so it would be smooth and easy to take the mold out. I invented to use the plasticine for that, but still, it gives not perfect results. Well, good that they working on developing a 3d printer for ceramics.
