DIY technique that gets results
What happens if you don’t have a 3d printer of your own, yet you find yourself suffering from a serious case of AME*?
*nb – Additive Manufacturing Envy. It’s here, and it’s real.
One enterprising student from Nagoya City University in Japan has taken matters into his own hands by simulating 3d printing.
Beginning with a 3d paper structure, he then pours layers of diluted epoxy to gradually build up a consistent solid coating. Because of the liquid’s viscosity, the resulting surface is smooth and does not need any finishing.
Experiments in this interesting 3d technique have ranged from a driftwood form (pictured above), to an elegant stationary holder and also the emerging revelation of a fetish for teddy bears.
