Glass vases, metal vases, vases made of wood, vases made of bone, vases fashioned out of the screams of the undead… even though you hoard all these types of vases, there’s probably one you don’t have yet. A 3D printed vase created from the generative form of liquid entering an empty vessel. Sounds poetic doesn’t it. WELL IT IS.

What’s even more awesome is that you can make your very own vase: customize, preview, print… Supabold? Supa cool.

You can make your own fluid vase at the Supabold site. The interface and preview are ingenious. Just adjust the simple settings and then watch a preview of the liquid pour into the empty vase. You can choose to stop the pour anywhere along the process and then print the fluid form.

The 3D print is white polyamide using the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) printing process. Each Fluid vase is different (splashy loose bits not included) and the size will be up to 3.75″ (9.5cm) by 3.75″ (9.5cm) by 8.25″ (21cm). The painful part… the price. The Fluid Vase costs $560 (399 Euro), but hey, it’s one more vase you can add to your collection.
