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.
