Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn, instructed workshops organized by Tokyo Maker and FabCafe Tokyo on February 27 to 28 and March 1 to 2. He also explained the CGI-based design interface, which is written by Python, used for the workshop. More than 15 people attended these workshops and created lamp shades for their smartphones and other LED lights using 3D printers with Dasyn's helical printing technology. More detailed information is available at Yasusi's blog in Japanese.
Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn, will give evening lectures and instruct workshops organized by Tokyo Maker and FabCafe Tokyo on February 27 to 28 and March 1 to 2. Participants will create lamp shades for their iPhone using 3D printers with Dasyn's helical printing technology.
Tokyo Maker and Dasyn.com held the 31th 3D-printer Study Meeting (or Workshop) at ICTCO. Three 3D printers were carried from Dasyn's workshop, and participants selected and created lamps using the helical scan-line 3D-printing technology (light, brilliant, and transparent 3D printing method). The participants looked enjoying the method and the process. More detailed description (in Japanese) can be found in a blog article.
Dasyn joined 44th Design Festa, which was held on Nomvember 26 to 27 at Tokyo Big Site. Dasyn exhibited and sold USB stand and pendant lamps with a brilliant-and-transparent shade and brilliant-and-transparent globes with USB- or battery-based LEDs. Illumination lights for Christmas trees were also displayed and sold.
Dasyn.com opened a booth (T-31) in the Handmade Makers' held at Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama Minato-Mirai on November 10 to 12. Dasyn exhibited and sold USB stand and pendant lamps with a brilliant-and-transparent shade and brilliant-and-transparent globes with USB- or battery-based LEDs. Illumination lights with 100 LEDs with 3D-printed shades were also sold. Globes were printed by a Kossel Mini 3D printer at the booth for demonstration.
Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn, will be the lecturer of a workshop organized by Tokyo Maker and Dasyn. The workshop title (in Japanese) is “Let's create lamp shades with a 3D printer”. In this workshop, participants will design (select a design of) a brilliant, light, and transparent lamp shade, and print it using a 3D printer. Lamp shades can be designed freely by writing a Python program, but they are selected from thousands of possible designs because time is limited in the workshop. The workshop will be held in ICTCO, which is an incubation organization of Nakano, Tokyo.
Dasyn joins the Handmade Makers', which will open on November 10 to 12 at Pacifico Yokohama. Dasyn also joins 44th Design Festa, which will open on Nomvember 26 to 27 at Tokyo Big Site. Dasyn will exhibit and sell USB stand and pendant lamps with a brilliant-and-transparent shade and brilliant-and-transparent globes with USB- or battery-based LEDs. The USB stand and pendant lamps create attractive shades.
Dasyn started to sell 3D-printing parts and LED-lighting related products and parts in the store in Yahoo! shopping. The parts for 3D-printing includes Arduino Mega second source, printer boards, stepping-moter drivers, nozzles, and so on. The LED-lighting related products includes USB hubs (for splitting USB power) and LED tubes, and the parts for LED lighting includes LED tapes and chips, USB cables, universal boards, and so on.
As the first series of products created in the new workshop (place), Dasyn.com began selling four types of USB stand and pendant lights. The shades of these lights are made by the special 3D printing techniques. They can be used as both a stand and a pendant, and they make attractive shades on tables or walls.
The red lights were specially designed for Halloween and Christmas. Other photos can be seen in the Dasyn shop in Yahoo shopping site (in Japan).
The workshop is in Nakano, Tokyo. It is a small, closed workshop, but very functional. In addition to two 3D printers, which has been used, one or two new printers and one CNC router will be introduced.
Dasyn.com opened a booth (E-228) in the Design Festa vol. 43 in Tokyo Big Site. Light, transparent, and brilliant 3D printed objects such as globes, heart-shaped dishes, "wine glasses", LED shades, and so on, are displayed and instantly sold at this booth. Globes are printed in the booth using a Rostock MAX 3D printer.More …
In addition to shops in Yahoo! shopping and Creema, Dasyn opened two new shops in Minne and Tetote. These shops sell brilliant globes and pendant lights with 3D-printed light and transparent plastic. Minne, Tetote, and Creema are Web-based market places for hand-made crafts.
Rapid Prototyping Journal accepted and is going to publish a paper titled “3D printing of generative art using the assembly and deformation of direction-specified parts” (Vol. 22, No. 4) authored by Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn.com. This paper describes a new method for designing and printing thin, transparent, and brilliant 3D-printing-based generative art.
