On the making of things: taking a risk with 3D printing
2015 (English)In: PIN-C 2015 reframing design: proceedings of the 4th participatory innovation conference 2015 / [ed] Rianne Valkenburg, Coen Dekkers and Janneke Sluijs, Hauge: The Hauge University of applied sciences , 2015, Vol. 1, 485-499 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we explore how the tradition of craft can be re-visited to assist a move beyond 3D-printed objects. While CAD, 3D modeling and 3D printing do offer precise tools for the repetitive manufacturing of small objects we argue that the closeness to "the materials at hand" is lost at the current moment. Via a practical design case we illustrate how we have experimented with ways of re-introducing craftsmanship both as an opportunity and as a necessity for moving forward. We combine this explorative/maker approach with an analytical approach, and analyze the process using the viewpoint of David Pye's (1968) notions of "workmanship of risk" and "workmanship of certainty".
