+ Smart Vase

Witteveen+Bos developed a design tool, called “Smart Vase”. This tool allows you to generate a beautiful 3D-printable vase for yourself, but also takes in consideration geometric analysis, structural calculation, material properties, and robotic fabrication.

The design tool for the Smart Vase will bring you step-by-step, from form finding to a final design. During designing your of your own vase, you will be informed multiple times. Based on the feedback you can adjust your design accordingly. With this tool, you will be able to push your design limits within the feasible range to create a beautiful and printable vase.
