News

In the winter semester 2019/2020, students from the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences, in cooperation with the Logistics Laboratory of the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences, researchers from the InnoSÜD university network at the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences and the Ulm School of Design Archive (HfG Archiv Ulm) / Museum Ulm developed proposals for solutions to produce copies of sensitive originals from the museum collection, with the help of a 3D printer. Here is a little video.

The challenge for the three teams (with a total of 13 students) was to first understand the complex object shapes in order to reproduce them. For this purpose, 3D scans were created first. The 3D prints were then created on the basis of this data. After deburring and grinding, these could be compared with the originals. Especially in the case of the Non-Orientable Surface, which Ulrich Burandt developed during the foundation course with Tomás Maldonado, it is now possible to take the complex form into one’s hand and to understand it better by touching and feeling.
These three models had to be implemented: the Non-Orientable Surface from Ulm School of Design student Ulrich Burandt, 1956/57; a plaster model for the milk jug of the TC 100 crockery, designed by Hans (Nick) Roericht in 1958/59, and elements of grid-oriented shell surfaces, after Walter Zeischegg, ca. 1963-65.

Prof. Dr. Oliver Kunze from the HNU led the students, Jasmin Al-Kuwaiti from the HfG Archiv was responsible for the task and the smooth exchange. In the practical implementation the students were guided by Dr. Galiya Klinkova, Fabian Frommer and Vitalij Fehr. The cooperation was also supported by the university association InnoSÜD, which is dedicated to knowledge and technology transfer. The logistics laboratory wants to make this transfer possible as a so-called “Open Lab” by opening its doors to students, companies and institutions from the region.

The students experimented with various 3D printing technologies: The so-called Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Stereolithography (SLA) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This resulted in several reprints for each object.
