CAD production and Nylon SLS 3D printing by D2W.Decoration by Mandy Smith.

The brand interactions agency, Matter of Form approached us with a view to producing a 1960’s science fiction jetpack which was to be part of an ad campaign for PA Consulting.

The CAD design was complicated by the fact that the model was to be displayed within the vitrine of a bus shelter as part of the ad campaign.  The design of the jetpack then had to be squeezed in order to fit.  Once the CAD model of the jetpack had been produced using photographs and then adapted to fit inside the display volume, it was then cut down in to component parts in order to simplify the decoration process and to reduce the price of the Nylon SLS printing by reducing the overall size of the print.
