Something we’re surprised that we don’t see more of in the 3D printing space is printed sheets that can be folded into 3D objects. While bed size limitation is certainly a factor, Australia-based industrial designer Mart Cherednik’s Stealth Bag, which is printed in one piece and has embedded hinges and snaps, should give you a good idea of the possibilities:
“It features special Swarovski stone settings that do not require any tools or glue,” Cherednik writes. “The crystals just ‘click in’ to the setting.”
We could see this technique being used for custom-fit electronics cases, tool holsters, knife holders, et cetera.
