1. First, can you say a few words about yourself and your work?
Hi, we are UAU project, a small multidisciplinary design studio based in Warsaw, Poland. Currently our main interest is designing great quality useful products strictly for 3D printing as we believe it’s the future of home production. We are exited that finally there is a tool that can bring projects to life almost instantly & someone on the other side of the world can have our product in front of him/her within few hours (printing time). How cool is that?
2. Where do you get your inspiration to create these fabulous designs?
It’s really hard to say. We are inspired by many fabulous designers out there ,the icons and the young generation. We get inspiration from nature, music, friends, books, textures. We surround ourselves with good design and that also inspires us.
4. What 3D printer have you got and what are your regular printing settings?
We started off with Makerbot Replicator 2 which of course we had to tweak and hack a bit to make it fit our needs. Recently we got Zortrax M200 and also tweaked it with Z-Temp as we print only with eco-friendly materials. Our usual settings that we use for testing and final production are 0.2mm layer height, 2-3 shells, 15% infill - works perfectly for almost everything.
5. Finally, among all your great work, what is your favorite creation?
We think the best and most accomplished is GROWW a simple greenhouse that can fit in every flat. But we think the idea behind SMF (Self Made Furniture) is also great. We want to design furniture that can be easily accessibly to everyone in the world and easy to put together with our printed set, instructions & additional stuff that you can find locally. So far we have a lamp and a table in that collection. But this is a long term project that we want to evolve with new items. Soon we will release additional parts to the table which will let you make much more.
