Printing Explorations

Printing Explorations

Eric Esser


In my master thesis “Quantitative Explorations” I developed various principles that lead to a significant increase in quality in the field of additive manufacturing processes, especially the FDM process. In addition, these principles allow complex structures to be printed which are not or only uneconomically producible in a conventional manner.

On the basis of these findings, both products and prototypes should be realized, which benefit from the additive manufacturing processes and demonstrate the potential of 3D printing. For the already developed prototypes, such as the textile “AuxTex”, innovative applications should be found.
