Professor Edward Valstar will be joining the MakerLunch tomorrow. He is professor at Delft University of Technology as well as Leiden University, where he is professor of Orthopaedic Implants and head of the Biomechanics and Imaging Group.
On two consecutive Makerlunches, four Honour students of Industrial Design Engineering will take turns to present results of their honour track assignment related to Designing with Smart Materials. The work was conducted with the research group Emerging Materials of Prof. Kaspar Jansen, who will also be joining the MakerLunch.
They will give a short presentation, and there will be some time to ask questions as well.
- Smart Textiles
- Printing of Light
- Self healing materials
- Shape morphing materials
Ferkan Metin studies Industrial Design Engineering in Delft and has just finished his internship at 3D Hubs. He will present his experinces from his internship during the makerlunch.
I’m Giorgia Galimberti and I achieved my master degree in Design & Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 2013 with a thesis on a comparison of 3D printing technologies from a design point of view. Now I am attending a PhD in Design in collaboration with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Research group: SITEC Laboratorio per le Applicazioni Laser http://sitec.mecc.polimi.it/EN_index.html.
Join us next Wednesday for a chat with our regular MakerLunch visitor: Bas van Deursen from Ultimaker. Bas is a alumni from Industrial Design Engineering and currently works as a design engineer at Ultimaker working on next generation 3D printers 😉
He will share with us some interesting insights on late stage product development. What happens when you travel to China, to inspect the first batch of components for a new product.
So join us to get insights into the gap between a ‘design-on-paper’, and the reality of actually producing a product.
See you Wednesday!
Today at lunchtime, Mark Mulligan from Harvard University, Graduate School of Design will join us for the maker lunch. Mark Mulligan is Associate Professor in Practice of Architecture.
Mulligan’s research explores the relationship between constructive detail and meaning in architecture; he has taught a variety of studios and courses at Harvard, including a course on modern Japanese architecture, introductory and advanced courses on construction technology, architecture studios, and urban design studios. Since 2010, he has led a teams of students in producing digital reconstructions and CG animations of major landmarks of 20th century Japanese architecture, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel in Tokyo (built 1923, demolished 1967), Kenzo Tange’s 1964 National Olympic Stadium at Yoyogi, and (currently in progress) Junzo Sakakura’s Japan Pavilion for the 1937 Paris World Expo. In winter 2014, he collaborated with FAS Professor Yukio Lippit to organize the exhibition “The Thinking Hand: Tools and Traditions of the Japanese Carpenter” at Harvard University’s Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, as part of the RIJS’s 40th Anniversary celebration.
Wednesday 9 December 12:30 @Makerlunch, Foundational Lab, IDE, TU Delft
Next week Wednesday Massoud Hassani will join us during the MakerLunch. His work focuses on creating a fully automated process to clear mines.
The original Mine Kafon is a wind-powered device that is heavy enough to detonate landmines as it rolls across the ground. Massoud drew inspiration for the project from his childhood growing up on the outskirts of Kabul, where he would play amongst the minefields with homemade, wind-powered toys.
Currently, Massoud is Kickstarting a new project, in which a drone will be used to clear mines in a more structured way. More information about Mine Kafon can be found here.
Please join us during the MakerLunch, to hear more about Massoud and his work. The MakerLunch takes place in the foundational lab @ IDE, TU Delft. The lunch has an informal setting: be prepared for a lot of interaction, room for questions and discussion (and don’t forget to bring your own lunch)
Wednesday 25 November 12:30 @Makerlunch, Foundational Lab, IDE, TU Delft
Next wednesday Troy Nachtigall will join us during the MakerLunch. Troy is a lecturer at SLEM, an international innovation and education institute for footwear. He also PhD researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, on wearable senses.
Please join us during the MakerLunch, to hear more about Troy and his work. The MakerLunch takes place in the foundational lab @ IDE, TU Delft. The lunch has an informal setting: be prepared for a lot of interaction, room for questions and discussion (and don’t forget to bring your own lunch)
See that you Make it to the MakerLunch!
