MIMAW

NOH

Tags | , , , ,

Three customised NOH masks were recently completed at the MIMAW Workshop for PNEU Architects.  These masks measured approximately 500x300x150mm each, making them the largest 3d printed items at our studio to date.  Each mask comprised of about 20 printed components with a total print time of 140+ hours in two weeks.  They were then carefully assembled, primed and finished.

Each of the mask’s components was digitally set-up to avoid secondary support structures enabling us to minimize material wastage and to speed up the print time to meet the tight deadline.

The masks gave us an opportunity to explore different finishing techniques to generate a continuous surface eliminating joint lines – an issue that has held us back in printing large scale projects in the past.  This project has given us a huge confidence and new tools and skills in tackling much larger projects with a few 3d-printing projects currently in the pipelines for SUPERSCALE.

We are currently making a small booklet to illustrate the components, settings and processes of the masks.  Also, make sure you look out for the NOH masks when you visit Woodgrove Shopping Centre in Melton!
