In this parametric design video find out how we are using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print large scale furniture in one piece. Our 3D Designer Beatrice Müller is using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print Large Furniture, almost in one piece, only adding the padding afterwards. Firms across industries use BigRep's large-format industrial 3D printer technology to reduce costs, develop better products and get to market quicker.

Imagine being able to design your optimal solution without using a single CAD operation. Now imagine being able to evaluate hundreds of viable options rather than a single design. That's the power of generative design.

In this parametric design video designer Rick Tegelaar explains how the Meshmatics Chandelier he developed at university became a Moooi product in this movie in our Design Dreams series for the Dutch brand. Launched by Moooi at Milan design week in 2017, Tegelaar's Meshmatics Chandelier is made from three concentric, inverted wire-mesh domes of different diameters and heights.

In this parametric  design video see how 3D Systems' Janne Kyttanen utilizes the complex, optimized structures found only in nature with his latest creation: a 3D printed lattice structure lounger chair. Created in a single print on the ProX 950, this lounger represents the perfect marriage of form and function.

This parametric design video is about TOP 10 3D Printed Creations; Walking Gyroscope, CNC Multi-Tool Machine, Cortex Cast, Dodecahedron Speaker, Forms In Nature Light, Toyota Replica Model, Local Motors Car, Jet Engine, Protohouse Scaled Model & Jin Hai Resort and Apartment Building

In this parametric design video you can watch: Sisyphus kinetic sculpture within 2 foot diameter x 22" tall, tempered glass-topped metal table (exact size may vary). Stepper motor driven Sisbot mechanism. Metal furniture with wood veneer options for top and sides – birch/maple, cherry, walnut, black. Some assembly required. 

In this parametric design video you can see: British sculpture artist Ivan Black is an artist with almost two decades of experience in constructing kinetic objects. He has a deep-rooted passion for kinetics and a talent for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. This gift is perfectly illustrated in Nebula Hive, a 1m high x 0.75m wide luminous vortex of kinetic energy that slowly transforms into countless celestial forms,

This parametric design video is about Poetic Kinetics; a studio that specializes in larger than life sculptures, many of which bring new life into public spaces around the world. Their most recent installation in St. Petersburg, Russia resembles a firebird, whose tail and wings span over 32,500 square feet.
