2hD's Alina travels to Romania and Hungary as a trade mission delegate

Thibaut Devulder

Alina has been instrumental in the setting up of a Trade Mission to Romania and Hungary by the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce and the Enterprise Europe Network. Building on our industry and academic contacts in Timisoara, Romania, the mission will also visit Szeged in Hungary to explore new business opportunities in these two emerging markets. 

We packed Alina off with a small stack of our first printed 2hD "brochure" — a simple fold-out A4 flyer that says something about our approach and expertise. The main aim being to look too nice to throw in the bin, provide some intrigue and direct people here to the website. We hope it works...

School net

Thibaut Devulder

Working with pupils at Mannings School in Nottingham, we surveyed a classroom that will be converted into a creative learning space. A quick Sketchup model was then virtually 'unfolded' to create a printed paper net. In class the students then cut and glued to create sketch physical models, before starting to experiment with transforming the space. Next time we will use thicker card, and investigate laser cutting. Rapid prototyping might be the logical step, but then a whole stage of physical creation of the model, and understanding folding, geometry and nets would be missed, so maybe not.
