Product & Structural Design
FORMiT is a project for designers, makers and educators. It is an open source recycling tool for creating 3D objects from recycled paper pulp.
The tool works by drawing water and pulped paper through a porous mould binding the paper fibers together, the paper is then removed from the mould to provide a 3D object.
The process is similar to the one used in industry to make egg boxes. The project has been used for prototyping, product, packaging and at educational events.
