Das Londoner Typostudio A2-Type und die Druckerei New North Press haben den ersten 3D-gedruckten Font in Hochdruck-Lettern ausgegeben und damit ein paar schicke Typo-Poster hergestellt. Nice!

In researching the font's design, Kubel and partner Scott Williams studied décor active wood type, including eighteenth-century examples of shaded, chiseled and chromatic fonts, as well as early attempts at rendering depth and three dimensions, before working on a more contemporary design. […]

The final font was printed using 'polyjet' printing, which is similar to inkjet, but instead uses a liquid photopolymer. The machine drops a layer [of the photopolymer], then the bed drops, then another layer is laid on top, and so on, while a UV light cures it at each stage. "In the film, we've done a time-lapse so it looks really fast, but there's about 400 layers in a 3mm plate, and it was mesmerising to sit there and watch," adds Ardagh. "A bed of eight characters took roughly two hours and 15 minutes to 3D print," he adds.
