Artist Statement:


3D printed Pen and Wave Ring are derived from the technology of applied generative design. In these works, the simple geometric algorithm systems for generating variations served as a point of departure. I then explored both automatic input methods and manual inputs, using surface analysis and random parameters. In the many variations of Wave Ring, the resulting forms represent creative works that challenge the conventional design formats of commercially produced jewelry. The entire process of input and evaluation changed my own approach to inventing form.

In making these prototypes, I used most of the available 3D printing technology, including SLS, SLA, and Titanium. I collaborated with the Additive Manufacturing Center of ITRI in Taiwan and am currently exploring the possibility of applying advanced 3D printing technology to creative design production.

Many ideas came out in this project, including the possibility of customization and the collection of big data from customers. These works combine generative design and 3D printing, and represent the potential of new access to creative design for the general public.

3D列印的筆與波浪指環是應用衍生性設計技術的產物。在這些作品中,基本的幾何演算系統是產生各種造型的起點。作者分別探索了自動的表面分析參數輸入,與人為的隨機參數輸入。各種造型變化的波浪指環,是用來質疑傳統大量生產模式的珠寶設計,所做的的創作品。這套設計流程也改變了作者在造型過程中的輸入與評估方式。

在這些原型中,作者使用了手邊可得的數種3D列印技術,包含SLS、SLA與鈦金屬,並與台灣工研院積層製造中心(Additive Manufacturing Center)合作,實驗在創造性設計製造中應用先進的3D列印技術。

在這計劃中形成許多想法,包含客製化的可能性,以及從客戶搜集資料。結合衍生性設計與3D列印的作品,所呈現的是為大眾設計創造的可能方向。
