Jonathan Brand is engineer, designer, artist and that’s just for starters. One can describe his projects as ‘pushing material to its limits’. A good example of this is the ’69 Mustang he built out of paper. Yes, you read it correctly, Jonathan made a car out of paper…Which is awesome! Just don’t expect it to go anywhere. ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
His next project is with our Ultimaker printers (he has two), the goal: printing a Honda CB500 motorcycle in parts. Considering Jonathan’s previous work this project seems, well, at least equally as strange. Here are some photo’s from his Ultimaker for calibration purposes.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
And if you are wondering why Jonathan has chosen this bike? Well, he doesn’t have any particular bond with it, it simply was the one with the most source material available. Also check out the first saddle print at the end.
We will be following Jonathan’s progress in the coming months. So stay tuned!
