3D printing macro photography by Alan Nguyen, via Dezeen.com:

Product designer Alan Nguyen has taken a series of extreme close-up photos of 3D-printer filament waste, revealing how the machines can produce detritus of surprising beauty.

A product designer at Amsterdam 3D printing firm Freedom of Creation, Alan Nguyen created the images using blobs of filament generated when changing the cartridge of plastic on a Cube 3D Printer.

“Normally people just throw them away, but I’ve been collecting these strands of filament for over a year now and they are just so beautiful,” said Nguyen.

“It’s pure poetry,” he explained. “Being produced from a machine that is designed to create exact physical copies of predefined digital code dictating where they should be laid down by Cartesian coordinates, they are free-moving spontaneous bursts of purely saturated awesomeness.”
