3 Ways To 3D Print Your Own Furniture!
Have you ever wanted to produce your own 3D printed furniture, but then dismissed the idea as impractical? After all, such projects are often expensive, slow, and require large industrial 3D printers to produce. Or at least they did, until now.
Recent innovations have made 3D printing furniture more accessible than ever. Whether you want a dramatic centerpiece for your palace’s dining room, or just a custom kitchen sink, one of these three techniques will work for you.
Using a large 3D printer, multiple prints on a desktop 3D printer, or the relatively new technique of “Hangprinting” represent the most viable ways of 3D printing furniture. In this article we will explore these options, the opportunities and challenges they present, and the most interesting projects that have used them.
Option 1: Producing furniture with the Hangprinter
Designed by Torbjørn Ludvigsen, the Hangprinter is intended to make printing large objects as cheap as possible. Rather than being housed in a case, The Hangprinter mounts on your room’s ceiling, rather than standard Cartesian or delta 3D printers which print within their enclosure. This making your maximum print volume as big as your room allows.An assembled Hangprinter model
Hoping to inspire others to try frameless 3D printing, Torbjørn made the files open-source, making them free for anyone to replicate, improve upon, and even sell. Most of the Hangprinter’s parts can be 3D printed themselves, and its construction is estimated to only cost $250.
Is Furniture 3D Printing Really That Easy?
As a relatively new technique, only making its debut in mid-2017, few examples of Hangprinted projects exist, however, furniture projects are among them. Specifically, a lampshade printed in its first promotional video, and Chris Riley’s Hangprinted stool.
Despite proving that this technique can indeed print furniture, these videos also exposed significant shortcomings.
Constructing and operating the Hangprinter requires a familiarity with 3D printers, as well as an understanding of mechanics, electronics, and debugging. Despite this, there are detailed instructions for new users, as well as a small but growing community of other Hangprinter users that can be turned to for help. The impact of this skill requirement will ultimately be dependent on how much trial and error you are willing to endure.
Additionally, Chris Riley’s stool printed with both layer shifts and layer adhesion defects. Perhaps most significantly however, the print ended up taking 14 days to complete, mainly because the Hangprinter was so loud that it couldn’t be run 24/7 in his home.
For furniture printers willing to put up with these shortcomings, Hangprinting remains the cheapest and most accessible way of producing entirely 3D printed furniture. Even if it isn’t quite as easy to use as the more professional options we’re about to discuss.
Option 2: 3D printing furniture with a large 3D printer
Household furniture tends to be much bigger than a desktop 3D printer’s maximum build volume, so our second technique is perhaps also the simplest approach: using a much bigger printer.3D printed street furniture by the “Print Your City” project… Probably not going to fit into your desktop printer.
Although straightforward, this technique is inaccessible for most individuals. Large 3D printers not only take up a lot of space –sometimes entire rooms — but are also incredibly expensive. Although prices have fallen recently, large industrial 3D printers can still cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
As a result, very few furniture projects are produced by individuals. Instead, 3D printed furniture has tended to be either the ventures of large companies, or artisan pieces, with Wilkhahn’s stool being an example of both.
Wilkhahn Printstool One
Designed by Thorsten Franck and produced by Wilkhahn, this 3D printed stool was produced on an industrial 3D printer and is available as a part of Wilkhahn’s range of premium office furniture.Wilkhahn’s “Printstool One” in various colours.
Wilkhahn, a furniture manufacturer based in Germany, sees themselves as set apart from the rest of the industry. “Unlike virtually any other manufacturer in the office furniture industry, Wilkhahn stands worldwide for designs made in Germany. It offers high-quality office and dynamic conference furniture which are benchmarks for the entire industry.”
The Printstool One represents one of the few commercially available pieces of 3D printed furniture available today. It can be completed in a few hours, including assembly of the non-3D printed base and seat. The main body is 3D printed with lignin, an organic biopolymer which makes the stool completely biodegradable.
Despite being commercially available, the Printstool One isn’t easy to obtain. It is not part of Wilkhahn’s main catalogue, only produced in a limited edition 500-piece run.
The price for each unit is undisclosed and likely varies with customization options. Using Wilkhahn’s main catalogue as a guide, their conventional stools cost between $266 and $660; assuming that the Printstool One matches these prices makes it a very expensive plastic stool.A non-3D printed Wilkhahn Stool, the Sitz 2-201, costing over $600.
Paying a premium for high-quality furniture is nothing new however, with Wilkhahn itself being a good example of that. This pricing however still makes the Printstool One too expensive for most individuals just trying kit out their home office.
However, over the last few years, concerted efforts by some 3D printer companies may have reached a turning point in making large-format 3D printing far more accessible.
Making Large-Format 3D Printing cheaper
Printing on large 3D printers will always be expensive, however recent years have seen some companies produce models specifically to be as affordable as possible.
These printers still cost tens of thousands of dollars, making them unsuitable for most individuals looking to try out furniture printing; but they have allowed more designers and smaller manufacturers to experiment with furniture 3D printing.
RH Engineering & ManoFigura Home Furnishings
With a promotional push in mid-2020, this pair of German designers hope to disrupt the luxury furniture and furnishings industry with their signature “Manoveneer” finishing technique, and large-scale 3D printing.The “Magna Patero Ortus “, RH Engineering & Manofigura’s luxury 3D printed sink.
Their printer of choice is a BigRep One. The printer is big enough for furniture printing, with a 1005mm³ build volume, but comes with a $39,000 price tag, depending on specifications.
Their process begins by 3D printing artisan furniture based on a client’s design. The piece is then coated with their signature “ManoVeneer.” What Manoveneer is made from isn’t revealed, but we know the coating is waterproof, and can add a range of surface textures to granite, slate, and sandstone, while weighing far less.
The duo has seen much success since their launch, launching their webstore in late 2020. Pretty impressive for a pair of designers in the mountains of Schwarzenberg.
Option 3: Producing furniture with a small 3D printer
Large 3D printers will always represent a barrier to furniture 3D printing due to their size and expense, prompting designers to look for ways to work around using them.
Instead, designers are turning to small 3D printers, and printing multiple smaller parts before assembling them, combining 3D printing and conventional furniture making. The former being used to construct the Supermod.
“Supermod” 3D Printed Wall
Designed by the founders of Simplus Designs, the Supermod is made up of individually printed storage modules joined together to make a modular storage “wall.”The “Supermod” 3D printed wall.
Intended to be a home furnishing, the Supermod’s patterns and opacities are designed to allow sunlight into each module’s contents during the day, as well as produce a glimmering effect around the wall’s room.
As a modular system, the Supermod also sidesteps the need to use large-scale 3D printers. Despite the wall being taller than most people, each module can be printed on an affordable 3D printer.
The later method, incorporating 3D printed parts into conventional furnishings, is perhaps the most accessible technique provided that the end-user has some knowledge of furniture construction. This technique can also be scaled up or down for use in amateur projects or designer pieces such as the “Saul” series.
Jon Christie’s “Saul” Dining Table & Chairs
Jon Christie, a bespoke furniture producer, spent 20 years trading modernist furniture before returning to university at the age of 40.Dining table from the “Saul” series
“During my student years, I became interested in 3D printing and how I might integrate it with traditional furniture making. The projects I worked on explored how 3D printed parts could be used to assist the furniture maker and manufacturer.”
He is most famous for his “Saul Dining Table & Chairs,” the 3D printed table is an artisan piece made from wood with 3D printed joints. He has theorized that his 3D printed joint system would allow for “greater customization, quicker production times and reduce waste” when applied to existing pieces of furniture. His set was displayed at the Royal Academy of Art Edinburgh in 2016.
Despite being artisan pieces, this technique has also been used by individuals in amateur furniture making, with many of these creators, much like our next project, uploading their creations to video sharing platforms such as YouTube.
Alexandre Chappel’s Side Table
Designer and Youtuber Alexandre Chappel documented the construction process of his own wooden side table with 3D printed joints. Like Jon Christie’s project the only 3D printed parts in this table were the joints, with the rest of the table being constructed out of wood with conventional hand tools.Another Alexandre Chappel creation, he has also 3D printed chairs and more.
He has made the STL files and instructions available on his personal website for only $5. With the rest of the table’s material costs easily being under $100, this is perhaps the most accessible way to 3D print your own furniture.
Despite their successes, the fact that both Jon and Alexandre’s projects are mainly made of wood does raise significant questions: is using a minimal amount of 3D printing the only way to accessibly 3D print furniture? Is a table mostly made of wood actually a 3D printed table?
Although these questions don’t diminish this technique’s potential, they will need to be answered by an end-user.
Which technique should I use to 3D print furniture?
So, which of these three methods should you use for your own furniture project? Well, that depends.Or you could always go flat-packed…
If you’re a professional studio or independent designer with the necessary funds, and you have a project that needs to be printed reliably and to a high quality, then a large 3D printer could serve you well.
If an industrial 3D printer is unaffordable, then high-quality pieces can still be constructed by using 3D printing alongside conventional techniques. That is, provided you have existing furniture construction skills, as these pieces will only be as good as you are at building them.
And if you’re willing to jump onto an emerging technique, and possess both the technical skills, and patience, to endure its current shortcomings, then Hangprinting could prove perfect.
And regardless of your chosen technique, you can do so with the confidence that 3D printing furniture is no longer an innovation for the near future. It’s something you can do in your living room right now.
Furniture on a 3D printer: 3D printing
In this article we talk about making furniture using additive technologies - 3D printing - about the advantages and examples of using this approach in practice and what technique is best to use.
This article was prepared using a publication from the site 3dsourced.com, which was translated and supplemented for you by the Top 3D Group.
You may have once had the idea to use 3D printing in the manufacture of furniture for your home, but you dismissed it, considering this idea too laborious, time consuming or expensive. After all, large industrial 3D printers with a huge print area, like the Farsoon SS403P 3D printer, are usually needed to create large pieces of cabinet furniture, right?
That used to be true, but now there are ways to use 3D printing in the interior without the need for large-format industrial machines.
Read on - we'll take a look at some of these applications with real examples.
Option 1: Build furniture with the Hangprinter
Designed by Torbjørn Ludwigsen, the Hangprinter is a cable-suspended and movable print unit designed to print large objects as cheaply as possible. The Hangprinter doesn't fit in a case, its print chamber is the entire room.
Hoping to inspire others to try frameless 3D printing, Thorbjörn has made the software files for this printer open and free for everyone to copy, use and further refine. Most parts of the Hangprinter can be 3D printed, and the cost of building one yourself is estimated to be as low as $250.
Chris Riley Stool
Introduced in mid-2017, Hangprinter printing immediately began to be tested in the creation of large objects. In the video below - one of the very first examples - Chris Riley's bar stool.
Such videos showed the strengths and weaknesses of Hangprinter, for example, the ability to create really large objects for relatively very little money and the possible delamination due to the lack of a closed camera.
Chris Riley's Stool printed with offset layers and delamination, and it also took two weeks to print because the Hangprinter was so loud it couldn't be used at night and had to be printed only during the day.
Hangprinter assembly and operation requires familiarity with 3D printers, an understanding of the mechanics of how they work, skills in working with electronics and device debugging, but there are also detailed instructions for beginners, as well as a small but growing community of other Hangprinter users who can be contacted for help.
For those who are willing to put up with the shortcomings described above, or are confident that they can avoid them, Hangprinter remains the most affordable and affordable way to create fully 3D printed furniture.
Option 2: 3D printed furniture on a large 3D printer
3D printed furniture from the Print Your City project. This model may not fit in your desktop printer.
The second method is to use a stationary 3D printer with a really large print chamber
Print Your City
The “Print Your City” project, for example, uses a 3D printer to print street furniture and other small architectural forms, consisting of a robot and a fenced indoor area equipped with a special printing platform.
Last but not least, plastic for printing is made from recycled waste.
Despite the simplicity of the idea itself, this method of manufacture is beyond the reach of most people. Large 3D printers not only take up a lot of space, sometimes entire rooms, but are also incredibly expensive. Large industrial 3D printers like the Farsoon HT1001P can still cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Because of this, very few furniture projects are carried out by individuals, usually by businesses or very passionate enthusiasts, and the Wilkhahn Printstool stool shown below is an example of both.
Wilkhahn Printstool One
Designed by Thorsten Frank and manufactured by Wilkhahn, this 3D stool was produced on an industrial 3D printer and is available as part of Wilkhahn's premium office furniture range.
Wilkhahn is a German furniture manufacturer that strives to differentiate itself from its competitors.
“Unlike almost any other office furniture manufacturer, Wilkhahn stands for designs made in Germany all over the world. It offers high-quality office and dynamic conference furniture that sets the benchmark for the entire industry,” the company says.
Printstool One is one of the few 3D printed pieces of furniture available commercially. It takes several hours to create and assemble, including 3D printing the base and attaching the seat. The base is printed with lignin, an organic biopolymer that decomposes in nature.
Although the Printstool One is a commercial product, it is not easy to obtain. It is not part of the main Wilkhahn catalog and was released in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
The price for this stool has not been disclosed and probably depends on options, seat material, for example. But given that regular stock stools in this manufacturer's catalog range from $266 to $660, it's safe to assume that the Printstool One costs at least $500, making it quite an expensive plastic stool. However, overpayment for exclusive furniture is a quite common phenomenon.
In recent years, 3D printing has become more and more accessible. Most likely, this will also affect its large-format sector.
RH Engineering & ManoFigura - home furniture
"Magna Patero Ortus" - 3D printed sink RH Engineering & Manofigura .
In mid-2020, this pair of German designers broke into the luxury furniture and interiors segment with their signature Manoveneer finishing technology and large-scale 3D printing.
Their favorite printer is the BigRep One, large enough to print furniture, with a 1005 mm³ displacement, and costs around $39,000, depending on specifications.
The production process begins with 3D printing of craft furniture based on the client's design, then the ManoVeneer branded coating is applied to the product. What Manoveneer is made of is a company secret, it is only known that the coating is waterproof, can imitate the texture of natural stone and weighs very little.
Option 3: modular printing on a small 3D printer
Large 3D printers will always be a barrier to 3D printing furniture due to their size and cost, prompting designers to look for ways to stop using them - they are turning to small 3D printers and print smaller parts for later assembly.
Supermod 3D printed wall
3D printed Supermod wall.
Designed by the founders of Simplus Designs, the Supermod shelving wall consists of individually printed modules that fit together.
Supermod was created for decoration, visual division of the room into zones and storage of small things in cells. As a modular system, Supermod bypasses the need for large scale 3D printers. While the assembled wall may be taller than most people, each module can be printed on an affordable desktop 3D printer.
The next method involves using 3D printed parts in combination with conventional ones, such as a table top shield or wooden legs, giving the 3D printed components the role of fasteners and framing elements. This is the most accessible way for a wide range of makers to use 3D printing in the creation or repair of furniture.
Option 4: 3D printed parts as accessories
John Christie “Saul” dining table and chairs
John Christie, who has been creating custom furniture for over 20 years, returned to university at 40.
“During my studies, I became interested in 3D printing and how I could integrate it into the traditional furniture making process. In my projects, I studied how 3D printed parts can be used in the production of furniture.”
John is best known for his Saul Dining Table and Chairs. The table is a handcrafted piece of wood with 3D printed connections.
The author suggested that his connection system would provide "greater customization, reduced production time and waste" when applied to existing pieces of furniture.
This furniture set was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in Edinburgh in 2016.
This is a craft project to sell products, but similar technology has been used by amateur authors as well.
Alexandre Chappelle Furniture
Designer and YouTuber Alexandre Chappelle has documented the process of making his own wooden table with 3D printed connections. As with John Christie's project, the only 3D printed parts on this table were the articulations, while the rest of the table's parts were made from wood using conventional hand tools.
The chair is another creation of Alexandre Chappelle.
The author has posted the STL files and instructions on his personal website, where they are available for as little as $5.
This is perhaps the most affordable way to 3D print your own furniture, although the fact that John and Alexander's designs are mostly made of wood begs the question: is using 3D printed fittings 3D printed furniture?
What technique should be used to 3D print furniture?
So which of these methods can you use for your own furniture project?
If you are a professional studio or independent designer with the necessary funds, and you have a project that needs to be printed reliably and with high quality, then a large 3D printer will be the best option. 3D printing on a large printer can be ordered from a 3D studio if this is a one-time project and you are not going to purchase a printer. If you need printing all the time, contact Top 3D Shop, and our specialists will help you choose the machine that is most suitable for solving your problems.
If an industrial 3D printer is not available, then high-quality products can be created using 3D printing on a personal or professional desktop machine, using modular designs or printing connections for parts made using other technologies.
Regardless of the way you choose to use 3D printing in furniture creation, you already know that it can and should be used in this area. And this is what you can do for your own home, workshop or production today.
And 3D printers that can be purchased at the Top 3D Shop will help you with this - contact us for advice and, with the help of our employees, select the exact 3D printer that you need.
