Zaha - Hadid - Architects - Studio - Hat
Zaha Hadid Architects, a London-based architectural studio, has designed and 3D printed a hat after the famous High Line building in New York. Dubbed as the 3D printed H-Line hat, designers used an asymmetrical V-shaped pattern which raises up above the wearer’s face then falls into the back to mimic the different levels of the skyscraper.

“THAT WAS THE STRONGEST 3D PIONEERS CHALLENGE SINCE THEIR LAUNCH,” SAID 3DPC ORGANIZERS SIMONE AND CHRISTOPH VÖLCKER.
“So many world-class projects – from architecture, design, and fashion to materials, sustainability and software. We are clearly feeling the opportunities that additive manufacturing processes will offer us in the future and what big steps development will take year after year.”
Experts - BMW - Group - Additive - Manufacturing
Experts from the multinational automotive BMW Group Additive Manufacturing Center and BMW Motorrad have created individualized radiator covers using additive manufacturing for the motorcycles participating in the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy Central Asia 2018.
Using a generative design algorithm, the rider’s names and start numbers were placed unto the existing CAD data of the radiator covers, then printed using the SLM process.
