is a fully 3D-printed book that explores and documents the 3D-printing process beyond its immediate use case for rapid-prototyping/object manufacturing — as a tool for graphic-making and re-examining the material properties of a ‘book’. Part of hyperpress.

Envisioned as TPU loose-leaves in a bound format, SLIC3D reimagines pages of a book as slices of a designed (printed) object and explores additive printing in place of traditional planographic processes. By manipulating the slicer software’s parameters/settings and physical interventions during the print process, graphics were created using open-source 3D models and the software’s generative support forms.
