This was an exploration that I did as part of one of my modules at Nottingham Trent University, but it is something I wish to take further and at larger scale. The layered effect of FDM 3D Printing creates some really interesting textures that transmit light in really nice ways. Combining materials and layers is a really interesting exploration and something I want to explore more when I have time, and may take to market actual products once the exploration has been done.
