PLABS, the 3D printed stool. Not just a prototype

PLABS è uno sgabello realizzato con la stampa 3D, utilizzando diverse stampanti 3D professionali


PLABS is a fully 3D printed stool which shows a new application for 3D printing in design field: the technology allows to realize the prototype but you can also realize a functional model dedicated to the market and completely customizable.


PLABS is an idea of Lorenzo Ronzoni, one the new Sharebot 3D Projects division designer and it was realized with three professional 3D printers (Sharebot XXL, Sharebot 42 and Sharebot Q) and different filaments (ABS-HF and PLA-S). The project shows the application of 3D printing for interior design and arose from the designer passion to realize modular parts with different materials.


The concept behind PLABS is very interesting: it shows how 3D printing could help designer to revolutionize their workflows, giving them professional tools dedicated to shape their ideas in just few hours. The technology allows to print an object, correct any error and print the final project, saving time and costs. Even the design process changes: designers can design even the strangest shapes, because 3D printing will realize them.
