On the one hand, printing with reactive material is complex, especially if several parts have to be mixed. On the other hand, this mixing allows for plenty of unique compositions which give the operators control over the desired characteristics. Read more about my experiment with polyurethane.
We had so much fun at the 2014 Bay Area Maker Faire. People really seemed to be interested in what we are doing in general, but when we started printing with Nutella, that's when the crowd really started to form around our booth!
When we first tried printing black polyurethane a few months ago, we had challenges getting the right parameters for the material, and ended up with some not-so-great prints.
So when we came back to try polyurethane again, we knew a bit more about printing pastes, and we're thrilled with the results we got from our second shot at using polyurethane.
It's rubbery texture gives these objects some really interesting properties.
Here's a video of the printer in action:
What would you print with polyurethane?
Watch this space for more samples soon.
Structur3D's food engineers have been hard at work optimizing paste printing for icing sugar. We are really proud of the sweet results we are getting, so we figured what better way to celebrate Star Wars Day, May the 4th (May the force) with some themed cupcakes, yumm.
The cupcakes are chocolate coconut from the cake box, located on Victoria here in downtown Kitchener, ON.
