GUM

I started to use my mouth as a 3d printer chewing bubblegum

Then I scanned the chewed pieces of bubblegum with a 3d scanner

We ordered some pink filament to print the bubblegum shapes this week

Moss – Printing

Moss Printing

Small update on the moss printing project.

Tests with the clay and powdered moss, where positive in the sense that we were able to print it.  Though the print itself needs refinement.
The moss powder (just extensively mixing moss) isn’t really visible, so if it will grow is the biggest question.

Of the three testprints, one has been fed with water and the two others with skimmed milk.
I’ve put it on a shadow rich place in the atelier, in the hope it starts to grow.

giving the moss a nutrient to feed it (I actually only needs moist to grow, but I read milk ('karne' preferably) helps the process.

Sound Printing

Still didn’t find a way to find the most analog way in converting sound in printing.

Support Printing

I’m also looking in how to export and stl from Cura for example to get the support structure in an stl file.

Moss – Printing

Moss Printing

First attempt with moss and Agar Agar, failed. To much moist, as a result only the water came out of the nozzle.

Next step is printing with clay (playdoh-plasticine) in combination with some sour milk and the moss.
Vague pictures of the agar and moss formula. More (better) pictures will follow from the clay mixture.

Mixed moss with water for the agar agar cooking process. The moss needs to be powdery like to be able to go in the heyrel printer.

Sound converted printing 

I’m also still interested to see what the result would be if we record live sound and convert this to a continuous print (printer on wheels?) of the sound of it’s surroundings.
