Inspired by PeLi Design’s Machine’s Perception door handles i.materialise made a kit and manual for you so you can make your very own door handles. The stainless steel 3D printed door handles come complete and one set costs $299 (199 Euro) including shipping. A designer can download the design kit for Sketchup, 3DS Max, Rhino and OBJ. Together with the manual a proficient designer, 3D modeler or CAD engineer will have the information they need to make their very own.
i.materialise hopes people will use this to make their homes more to their liking. At the same time i.materialise expects some designers to enter into the world of fixtures and compete directly with established manufacturers by offering their door handles for sale.
Are you not a designer? No problem. Use i.materialise’s Sketch to 3D 3D modelling service to turn a drawing of your own door handles into a design. A set would then cost you around $379.
