I´m happy to announce a collaboration with the Institute for Future Artefacts (IFA).
The IFA is an international organization that searches and examines relicts from tomorrow.
IFA scientists have found a way to materialize Artefacts that don’t even exist yet. Basically they are archeologists that operate in the future.
They asked me if I could help to 3D-print some of their findings and I gladly said YES!
In exchange I was allowed to market and sell smaller replicas of these beautyful artefacts.
Future Artefact No.005
Future Artefact No.005 was found in the year 6278 on a moon of the 4th Planet of the Karlaban solar system in a side arm of the Andromeda Galaxy.
It is assumed, that it was made by the Ardianians, an old and very highly developed race, that has lived in this part of the galaxy for ages.
Then, a few millennia before, they miraculously disappeared and left only a few of these organically shaped artefacts…
The 3D printed pendant is a replica of the artefact.
After many changes my 3D printed candleholder LUX DRACONIS 006 is finally ready and for sale.
3 dragons entangled and intertwined in each other and in a bowl of fire..
The candle is hold by a rune-ornamented ring that is held in place by the wings oft the beasts.
The ring has an inner diameter of 20 mm which is pretty narrow and lets the candle „float“ in midair ( unless you force it all the way down). This was incidental, but I like it that way. So you might be able to watch a floating flame burn amidst the runering. And who knows what crazy kind of magic that will cause…
Since this is a relatively small candleholder, the print lines and the „grain“ of the steel is pretty noticeable, even in the polished version. Call it archaic….
Now onto something new…
new 3D printed candleholder: LUX DRACONIS 001
After a lot of work I´m happy to release my new 3D printed candleholder: LUX DRACONIS 001!
This candleholder is so big that it can´t even be printed in one part.
It has to be 3D printed in for parts, which we then weld together.
This little 3D printed dragon candleholder can hold a tea light as well as a normal candle.
The aggresive looking beast carries a decorated bowl, that holds your personal dragonfire.
Neck and wings of the dragon cut through the bowl and form a „triple grip“ into which a normal candle is clamped. Note that those these wings and the neck have sharp edges to cut into the candle and hold it that way.
I would suggest using rather smaller candles (app.20 cm) than those really tall table-candles, since they fit and look better in this relatively small ( 7,5 cm ) candleholder.

This is my new work :
LUX DRACONIS 003 – a 3D printed candleholder
The first of an upcoming series of dragon-themed 3D printed candleholders.
The beauty of this little tea light holder not only lies in the design of the dragon, but also ( and maybe even more) in the wonderful shadows that are painted on the wall, once a candle is lit.
This nylon dragon can hold a standard Tea light of 39 mm (1 ½“) diameter.
It has a small hole in the back, on which it easily can be hung on a nail or a small screw.
It´s available here:
I just got the news that there is an article about my 3D printed candle holders at 3Dprint.com, one of the leading 3D printing News portals.
This is my new 3D printed candleholder „Striding man“.
And as a flame has to be carried with grace and elecance, this guy takes it´s job seriously. Maybe even bordering on the comical…. ?
It´s 3D printed in steel and is standing approx. 20 cm in height of course is available at my shapeways shop.
This doorhandle can turn every door into a magic portal. The dragon sits on the spindle, as if he is a guardian of something.
His wings are decorated with some organic, ornamental lines, as are his legs and head. The shaft shows some linear ornaments. Maybe these are some ancient runes…
This pictures and the video show the dragondoorhandle 009 in polished grey steel.
Other available finishes are: steel, matte black steel, matte gold steel, polished gold steel, polished nickel steel.
This doorhandle is designed for the 8×8 mm square spindles that are used in most european countries.
This doorhandle is available at my shapeways shop.
The dragon is fixed to this rods in the old-fashioned way: with a steel pin, that runs through the square rod and locks the doorhandle to the rod. ( see video)
I had the pleasure to join the „ExtremeFlyers“, makers of the Micro Drone, at their booth at 3D printshow London to show some 3D printed cases for the Micro Drone. As you can see in the video, everybody had lots of fun…
The 3D printed wasp is available at shapeways ( see below).
3D printed wasp case for Micro Drone 2.0 and 3.0
I have the great opportunity to collaborate with „Extreme Flyers“, makers of the Micro Drone 2.0 and the upcoming 3.0 on drone cases.
The indiegogo campaign for the Micro Drone 3.0 will launch soon…
This wasp-case is one of the measures to create more attention and increase the appeal of the Campaign.
