Turn Your Facebook Profile Into a 3D Printable Sculpture

by The Creators Project

February 5, 2013

SOFTlab is a studio that has its roots in architecture, which is apparent in their structured design aesthetic, which is often modular and uses parametric design, a code-based process, to come up with unusual shapes and forms. In Crystallized, SOFTlab have created a geode rock crystal that’s made up of your social relationships. Each point on the geode represents a friend and its shape is determined by the strength of your relationship. The more friends you add, the more interesting the form will be. When you first launch the app, you’ll see a geode made up of the people whose social graphs are most similar to yours. Crack it open to explore your friends’ interests and likes and customize the colors before snapping a photo to share with friends or 3D printing the sculpture on Shapeways.
