Eyewear made with XFAB: DWS introduces the designers of Fabbrica 4.0

Here revealed names and  faces of the four designers who will design the glasses and sunglasses which will be 3D printed at the DWS booth during Maker Fair Rome from 14th to 16th October for the  DWS’ event “Fabbrica 4.0: business your idea”. Four young italian designers who have accepted the challenge to examine the unlimited possibilities of the stereolithography: from a liquid material, photosensitive, to a finished and saleable product, made with the latest productive technology: the 3D printing.

Alice Barki is very young, she is only 28 years old but has a remarkable resume: graduated cum laude and II level bachelor in industrial design, obtained with the highest mark. She boasts prestigious professional collaborations on architecture and fashion and, from time to time, she takes part in design contest which are, generally, won by her. Her biggest inclination is the industrial design which she enriches with her artistic talent.

Enea Vitali comes from a family of opticians and is very easily been chosen by DWS for his experience: class 1983, optometrist optician with only one passion: the CAD design for drawing his own glasses. He has already founded his own brand, the Farmakoff, to produce them, clearly in stereolithography, and to sale them in his own shops.

A bachelor in design engineering and a role of professor at Poli.Design and at the Nuova Accademia delle Belle Arti, Fabio Caresi does not need an introduction. Expert of tridimensional modelling, he collaborates with different Italian brands which are leaders on interior design and on fashion industry. He is able to interprets the market needs, bestowing to his design a strong personality but elegant.

The FabLab Milano has been created by him, Salvatore Saldano, a mind that is a mix of creativity and pragmatism which encourages him to produce any common object with the 3D printing. Graduated at the Accademia delle Belle Arti of Brera, he has been working as industrial designer, but he prefers to be named a maker.

The production of the glasses in Maker Faire Special Edition, designed by these four talents will be realized with the printer that all the makers are dreaming of: XFAB of DWSLAB. It has a big variety of materials that can produce almost everything. XFAB is the printer that can transform the makers’ typical DIY philosophy  in a new model of business.

Come to try the glasses on and to meet the four Designers at Maker Faire Rome, the biggest European exhibition: we wait you in Fiera di Roma from 14th to 16th of October!

A 3D printed reproduction of Amatrice, the town devastated by the earthquake.

During the last Maker Faire Rome, a detailed reproduction of the city of Amatrice has been presented. The little Italian town has been devastated by the earthquake on 24th August 2016 and, with the purpose of supporting the evacuated citizens, DWS together with Alessandro Ranellucci and the designer Michele Calvano have joined to realize the three-dimensional map of the ancient historical centre.

The artwork is a CAD drawing elaborated on the imagines captured before the earthquake and 3D printed, with dimensions of 2 x 4 meters. DWS has printed the blocks with houses and buildings with XFAB, the stereolitoghraphy 3D printer which solidifies liquid material through a laser source. It is a wish for a prompt reconstruction, in order to maintain the identity and the original aspect of the town.



DWS main sponsor at Maker Faire Rome 2016

DWS Systems, italian additive manufacturing leader in the 3D printers production, for the 2016 edition reconfirms itself as Main Sponsor of Maker Faire Rome Europe edition, that will take place in Fiera di Roma from 14th to 16th October.

In its 120 sq.m booth, DWS will present “Fabbrica 4.0: business your idea”. It won’t be a traditional stand: Fabbrica 4.0 is tought to open the doors of the rapid prototyping, economically affordable, to prosumers, final professional consumers, with the aim to show the new potentialities of business, the functionality and the quality of the 3D printing. Fabbrica 4.0 is dedicated to entrepreneurs, young startups, designers, makers, inventors and students who will have the chance to see a whole productive process: from the concept, to the order through e-commerce, to the real production with DWS 3D printers.

DWS chooses four designers to whom entrusts the design of as many glasses for a Maker Faire limited edition: Fabio Caresi, Enea Vitali, Alice Barki, and Salvatore Saldano will design eyeglasses and sunglasses which will be produced during the faire and shipped. From the design to the realization of a finished and ready to be shipped model: no more space and time barriers, but an immediate process that creates real and available products.

DWS Systems intends to spread the culture on new opportunities of business in a sustainable and affordable vision: just in time production with a contained investment.

The commitment is on educational as well: in support of the talent, of the creativity and to incentivize the use of the 3D printing in schools, DWS, in collaboration with Maker Faire Rome, promotes a Call for Schools. It is a real contest where schools can participate presenting a project that has the aim to improve the quality of life. The best fiftyfive projects chosen for innovation and originality will be selected by a panel of judges who will declare the winner. The proclaim of the winner will be during the exhibition: the winning school will receive a 3D printer XFAB as reward.

…ever heard about Half Toys?

Here’s HDC, our korean partner from Seul, during @SIMTOS, Kintex.

…but what’s HalfToys? An amazing project we guess you’ll soon be hearing about. Carried out by one of the artists exhibiting in the Digitalhands 3d Gallery. They are 3d-made “half” toys which show the full animal body from one side, and the skeleton from the other side… looking like they will go viral very soon!
