Grafter 3D software lets you remix and 3D print working mechanical parts

The Hasso Plattner Institut (HPI), a design, digital and engineering institute at the University of Potsdam has developed the Grafter 3D software system, which allows users to remix 3D models machines and create working mechanisms that can be 3D printed. As part of a proof of concept study, researchers from HPI’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) took three parent designs from the online 3D object platform and remixed them into a working contraption. The Grafter project aims to shift attention away from object-based remixing towards mechanism based remixing. The problem with mechanical remixing Remix culture plays an important part in […]
