The idea is to record a short voice message with Makoo’s software, which an algorithm then converts to a specific shape accordingly.
Makoo is another new DIY (Design It Yourself) 3D printing jewellery project to pop up from the old world. However, the fashion-oriented Italians behind the company haven’t exactly settled for the most conventional solutions when outlining their core processes – ensuring the user has more besides the basic changing of the material, colour and size of the ring or other piece of jewellery. The fresh approach that Makoo’s proposition is based on relies on combining some interesting code with design functions to give the user – in practice the user’s voice – the reigns to go wild. The idea is to record a short voice message with Makoo’s software, which an algorithm then converts to a specific shape accordingly.
Besides the actual words and their pronunciation, emphasis is also placed on the intensity of the aspiring designer’s voice, as it carries most of the shape forming responsibility. After the basic shape of the piece is created, the user can then also modify the thickness, height and torsion of the 3D model. Check out the short (1 min) video of the process below.
