Neuroscience meets design: 3D printing food-safe drinking bottles
03 August 2022
Munich-based company air up has kicked off a new healthy drink trend by selling bottles that flavour water using a principle called ‘retronasal smell’.
3D printing has played a key role in air up’s development process, both for directly printing prototypes and for producing rapid tooling for silicone casting to create food-safe prototypes. This has saved the young scale-up time and money, empowering it to enter the market faster.
In this interview, Tim Jäger – one of the five founders and current CTO of the company – talks about coming up with the idea, the technology, and how air up used its Form 3 and Form 3L stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers to create detailed functional prototypes to perfect the design.
