This project was my final project during my internship at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle, Germany.
The handles, printed on a 3D printer, are adapted specifically for the saw blades produced by Pilana. This is one of the largest sawmill manufacturers in Europe. They have a very sophisticated production of saw blades, but they import the handles from China. I decided to investigate how people work with saw blades and what shape is natural for them. I used air-drying clay to imprint the hand in different positions. I scanned it and edited it in 3D software. Because people are different, I prepared three sizes of each shape with right and left versions. The files are ready for 3D printing, and a CNC mill can be used for some of them.
