Inflated Vases - 3D Printed Vessels That Mimic the Look of Soft Materials
Captivated by how 3D software can simulate cloth in a very realistic manner, designer Dominik Raskin (Dora) explored ways to materialise these simulations. Starting from various geometric shapes and applying different inflation setting such as pressure, cloth properties, gravity, etc. a collection of 3d printed vases were made.

These 3D printed vases came to life by using dynamic cloth simulation within 3D modeling software Maya. By inflating a geometric shape and adding constraints along certain seams or buttons, different types of cloth are simulated. The look of a puffer jacket or Chesterfield sofa was attained by this process.This imitation makes the vases look soft although they are made from rigid PLA 3D printing filament.
