Coil is a groundbreaking 3D printed pendant which is made using scrap materials from LightArt’s parent company 3FORM. The scrap plastic is ground to uniform shards and sifted using our in-house optical sorting platform. After sorting, pigment is added to the plastic, creating practically any color. The pellets are then printed into the desired form in our Seattle facility. Waste to Watts.

While not the original designer, I have participated in the manufacturing process. I am currently leading efforts to design and build a completely in-house industrial printer, with the goal of increasing output from four to five pendants, to 25+ pendants per day. This will be accomplished through the use of an automated load and unload system, 24/7 printing capabilities, decreased defect count, and proper pellet drying to increase maximum print speed.
