Bringing the 3D Geometry of Nature to your Desk

Its not often that the worlds of nature and 3D Printing are unified, but for artist and author Isaac Budmen nature was indeed the perfect inspiration to teleport the outside onto the printer bed. Isaac’s collection started by studying the geometry’s of Redwood, Pine and Oak tree’s and their magical seeds. Mesmerising spiral patterns and intricate detail stirred Isaac to recreate these designs for 3D printers. After working with Cults on perfecting the designs for FDM printers the final ‘Pine Cone Collection’ was released into the wild and can be downloaded here. Check out our rundown of the prints below!

Illusionary Acorn

The Illusionary Acorn is a big favourite at HQ! After printing the stunning design on our Makerbot Replicator 5 we couldnt believe the detail! Not only is it a joy to look at you can also squirrel away precious items from your colleagues! As Cults explain ‘Let your imagination soar higher than the forest canopy.’

Sequoia Organizer

Why not let nature organise your life? The Sequoia Organizer is inspired by the seed pods of the mighty Sequoia Redwoods and is a welcome addition to any dreary desk. Its especially useful if organisation doesn’t come naturally and you like to hoard our 2D cousin, paper.

Desktop Conifer

This piece, designed from Isaac’s first pinecone studies the Desktop Conifer is the only way you can store your stationery in style. Get this on your desk and wait for the comments to roll in!

All of these designs can be downloaded exclusively at Cults.

What software did you use for the design? I used 3D CAD before but I find Kinematics more efficient in my recent projects. It’s good for my work, especially in rigid customization and complex geometric figures. One incredible work I did were jewelleries made with Taulman nylon filament-http://www.3d2print.net/shop/product/taulman-645-nylon/ in various colours. <!–td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}–>
