More Than Layers (MTL), a computational design studio, and 3D Makers Zone (3DMZ), an industrial 3D printing hub, have collaborated on the production – enabled by ADAXIS – of the Model.C3, a fully 3D printed lounge piece designed to cater to CLUB3, located in Patronaat, a cultural and music venue in Haarlem, in the Netherlands.

The modular design of the Model.C3 offers diverse configurations tailored to different spaces within CLUB3. From a nightclub ambiance to an intimate DJ stage area, and even an exhibition space, the 3D printed lounge piece seamlessly adapts to various functions.

The unique shape and robustness of Model.C3 showcases the potential of industrial robotic arms to revolutionize manufacturing across different industries, creating everything from bespoke furniture to building components.

The printing of the Model.C3 was enabled by AdaOne from ADAXIS, which plays a pivotal role in controlling robotic arms for large-scale 3D printing – converting designs into machine-readable code. Its capabilities extend beyond basic functions, encompassing part optimization, path planning, process optimization, robotic simulation, program creation, and process monitoring.

“In the Club3 project, our goal was to push the boundaries of design innovation while ensuring each concept was fully realizable. Traditionally, the journey from design conception to a manufacturable product involves numerous iterations, often requiring us to revisit earlier stages due to manufacturability constraints. This is a time-consuming process and also limits our creative exploration,” said Michael John Sweers, Founder of MTL.

“AdaOne reformed our workflow, streamlining the transition from initial design to a manufacturable configuration. One of the standout features of AdaOne was its simplification of the slicing process for robotic arms. This allowed our designers to validate their concepts at an early stage, broadening the scope for creative exploration. We could explore a wider range of design options with our client without the usual back-and-forth. It effectively bridged the gap between creativity and practicality, ensuring that our designs were not just imaginative but also fully realizable. Additionally, manufacturing large, interconnected parts presents its own set of challenges. AdaOne’s capability for quick iterations was crucial, enabling us to adjust the manufacturing process on the fly and maintain high-quality output without compromising on the project’s ambitious design goals.”

Model.C3 is crafted using the newly launched Beon3D material from LyondellBasell, selected for its durability, smooth finish, aesthetic appeal, and recyclability.
