Here at Creative Graffix we unfotunately haven't gotten enough requests for 3D printing to invest in the equipment. But who knows what the future might hold? Well, the internet does. Here are 6 absolutely incredible, barely-believable examples of 3D Printing!
This fully working acoustic guitar is entirely made up of 3D parts, combinign 3D printed metals and plastics. If we could just print our own musical instruments that'd be music to our ears! It doesn't match up to the classic wooden design, but it's only a matter of time before the 3D printed design catches up.
US-based company Doodlescuplt make their living allowing children to make their drawings into real, 3D toys (all for a rather lean $100). The toys can look surreal, but it's a lovely idea, and the pencil lines look perfect on the 3D printed toy every time. Take a look at more examples of Doodlescuplt's work here.
Ever really wanted your food in exact, precise and custom shapes? No? Well now you can! As 3D printers are becoming more developed people are starting to experiment more and more with materials that can be used. These pcitured snacks are actually made from ground-up meal worms. Hungry yet?
3D printing can even enter the realm of medicine. A 3D printed jaw-replacement has now be produced, ready to be fitted for people with severe jaw injuries. It can be made from incredibly durable materials - basically whatever fits into the 3D printer. So long as you don't accidently make it out of ground-up meal worms.
3D printers are already able to render their prints in such detail that they can print fabric for use in clothing. Why tailor your clothes or cut fabrics using those old-fassioned scissor-y things? Design it in 3D and press print.
Okay, so we've already said food, but this is a little different. We bet the guy who tried to print with ground-up meal worms feels silly now. It's all a matter of what can be processed through the printing device itself, and chocolate is luckily one of those materials. We've got our fingers crossed we'll be getting a chocolate-compatible model into the office some day.
Don't be surprised if you stumble across another Creative Graffix 3D printing article in a matter of months. The industry moves and such an incredible speed that developments over the next few months will dwarf the oddness of the above examples. We can only wait and see. Until next time...
