Encapsulated pollen is a project that brings together technology and creativity. 3D printing, jewelry and perfumes.It is a proposal that we made for a workshop on the future packaging of fragrances. One piece of jewelry entirely 3D printed, inside of it is possible to introduce fragrance capsules made from hydrogel, allowing to carry with you a smell of a perfume and prolong it throughout the day, the week or even the month. It isn’t just an accessory, it isn’t just a packing more, this prototype allows to include a forgotten public, it couples perfectly with the people who don’t tolerate the perfume in their skin as it generates allergies to them, this is a new option to the people that wish to use perfume not directly on the body but with an accessory that contains our fragrance, needs to be watered and lasts for a month.
Does it transform the error in charm? We design with the material properties of the PLA plastic to create the effect of the leaves of the flower
For development this piece is using a technique that is controlling the error of the machine. A series of extruded squares are proposed in the digital model, they have a minimal measurements that when the printing is making this really generate an error, they are so thin. what is extruded are fine threads of filaments,these form petals that are present in the piece, it generates unique pieces for each printing.
We use FDM 3D printing in order to make the leaves of the flower by extruding thin filament lines without support material. We pause the 3D print in specific height in order to introduce the hydrogel spheres and the metallic pin that stays encapsulated in the flower.
For prototype development the model is initially made in Rhinoceros this is a software FOR 3D MODELING, providing a real view of the printing, the attachments must be CAD in STL this a monochrome version.
