3D Printed Alphabet ProjectFor each of the letters ‘A’ through ‘Z’, the designers selected a typeface beginning with that character, which is used in the sculptural work. Each piece encapsulates a bit of the history of the typeface: the ‘J’ adopts the form of a metro system map, because its fontface ‘johnston’ was originally designed for the london underground; the ‘C’ is composed of ‘courier’ typewriter keys, used in 1950s typewriters. For the project we used two of our in house printers to complete the project which include a dimensions Uprint and a ZCorp 450. Both machines have similar build volumes with the UPrint creating the parts in ABS and the ZCorp in their powder-based material.” -Alex
