Machaneu, an incredible spherical system printed in 3D
The Proxy design studio has created and put on sale on Shapeways the very first version of an incredible 3D printed object , the Machaneu v1. It is a sphere with circular gears and manual interaction. A simple action on one of the components of the object starts the whole system. As announced by its creator Toru Hasegawa , this is the first in a series of kinetic objects to explore the limits of 3D printing . He also explains that this object is based on the functioning of nature: it solves many problems by the form, in order to use the least resources possible. This is a strategy that is found repeatedly in the natural world, leading to complex geometries such as bone structures. This same logic was used on every part of the Machaneu to create a porous object that seems completely solid.
