In November 2017, together with thirty companies and research institutes, we presented our Family of the Future at the Prototyping and Formnext 3D-printing trade fairs. The goal of this unprecedented collaboration was to promote 3D-printing and inspire companies in a creative way: by demonstrating 3D-printing technologies in a recognizable setting. Despite all the hype surrounding it, 3D-printing is still relatively unknown for many businesses, and they’re missing out on opportunities because of this.
“Family of the Future” is a demonstration concept – a 3D-printed replica of three humans. These replicas include more than 90 3D-printed parts, representing different body components, produced using 15 different 3D-printing methods: from printed electronics to metal and ceramic parts. Using an accompanying website and information brochure, the technology and possible use cases are further explained.
The project was eagerly picked up by the international 3D printing press, and the demonstration concept will continue to travel to various technology events, fairs and schools with the aim of spreading knowledge about 3D-printing.
