Create 3D Printed Objects In Air #3dthursday

Create 3D Printed Objects In Air:

The traditional 3D printers used the regular horizontal surfaces to print objects on. But how cool would it be to have a 3D printer that can take away the surface dependency? Basically that means you can virtually print 3D objects anywhere in the air!

This is what the new 3D robotic printer called “Mataerial” can achieve. It’s unique characteristic is to allow users to print 3D objects in the air extending from any surface. It uses the principles of Anti-gravity object modeling and does not require any supporting structures to print objects in air.

This unique method enables users to print natural objects by using 3D curves in free motion.

The material that comes out of the nozzle is already solidified due to a chemical reaction between two source components.

Users can play around with different sizes and shapes giving them good flexibility to print such objects without using any particular surface.

This is a collaborative effort of Petr Novikov, Sasa Jokic and Joris Laarman studio.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    this work is based in the very extensive research project FABBOTS lead by 3d-printing specialist and architect Marta Malé-Alemany, which includes more than 20 academic projects that explore the application of additive manufacturing techniques to architecture in really creative ways. A pity (shame) she is not present in the credit list at the end of the film as she has been the true ispirator for this project!
