Valentine’s Heart Disney 3D-printed LightPipes for Toys:

Disney is exploring the use of 3D printers to build new kinds of light features into objects.

The firm’s researchers are working on a range of techniques including “light pipes” and tubes of enclosed air that can be made to glow in controlled ways.

They say that 3D printers can create objects with “micron accuracy” that would otherwise be more complicated and costly to build.

It paves the way for the firm to create new kinds of toys.

However, one expert suggested it might be some time before the innovation became cheap enough to use to create mass produced items.
