Moving into a fashionable, over a 100 years old, Art Nouveau house Matt Olczyk found that the interior design missed some important parts to match the spirit of the house. The classical white doors could greatly benefit by adding stylish door fittings around the golden knobs. Inspired by a visit to the antique market, Matt decided to hand-craft new door fittings himself using a ZMorph multitool 3D printer.
The entire design of the door fitting was based on a simple 2D leaf motif multiplied and transformed during the 3D modeling process. After importing the model into Voxelizer software and changing into G-codes, the door fitting was 3D printed on a ZMorph machine with a black ABS. Post-production capabilities of ABS determined the use of this material instead of PLA which require using a primer before the printing.
The door fittings were 3D printed in pairs, for each door in the house. Every print took about 10 hours to finish after which Matt cleaned it with acetone and painted with golden acrylic paint. The entire manufacturing process took about 3 days which is not long, especially considering the amazing and stylish final results. 3D printing on a ZMorph proved to be a good way for creating unique interior design elements.
