Luftverk - Injection Machined Innovative Plastic
During the Covid shut down, he spent so much time at home with not much else to do. It was then he started 3D printing various projects. Inspired by the titanium Triple Zero from the year prior, he printed this exact yoyo - using the Fluid Print Dynamics spacer kit he expected it to be no good. But that was far from the truth. It was incredible - It felt so floaty and fun. It encouraged a bouncy fast play style. It kind of captured what that Yoyojam Kickside felt like, but felt more modern. That was actually the exact moment this whole plastic Injection Machining idea started from. Without this viby 3D printed yoyo, he isn't sure any of the Luftverk plastics would even exist!
So with that Luftverk proudly is the Plastic Triple Zero, an “Injection Machined” yoyo which is a technique that achieves that classic YoYoJam over molded bearing seat feel but with the quality of a premium machined aluminum yoyo. It is first injection molded into a large plastic blank then the profile is completely CNC machined. This particular version is based on the original titanium Triple Zero released in 2018.
The organic shape of the Triple Zero creates the ultimate floaty yoyo experience - aimed at being fast and fun like its titanium counterpart. Capturing the feel of how the original Titanium version moves on string was very important with this project. A clean and minimalistic design language is carried throughout the yoyo and box.
