It doesn't have to be a 3D print


#1

I was hung up on materials that could be printed in 3D.

I can think of two 2D applications:

  1. Elmer’s glue for precise definition of a design that uses glitter.
  2. Woodworkers’ glue … Titebond, etc. for precise location and amount on delicate projects.

There may be many applications in 2D that can be printed on something other than our build platform. Foamcore, plywood, model railroad parts, RC models, Moderate-volume production of an assembly …

Absolutely!

After all, 2D space is still 3D space… just a subset of it.

  1. Conductive inks and paints
  2. I know there’s more, but it’s not at the top of my mind at the moment.
    (We intend to publish an article shortly about printing with conductive ink shortly)

John,

No offense intended, but I think a photo that looks less like Malvo (Fargo TV series) would be nice.

Haha, OK. Feedback appreciated!

The picture was distorted, making it look worse than it is perhaps, but it’s still a dark picture.

How’s that?

Will this print some of the metal clays that pople are using?

@triphi, I missed your question, so I’m returning to it now, sorry for that.

The Discov3ry is engineered to print clay, however, we haven’t tested with metal clays at all, partially due to their cost.
