3D printing with sand using the sun!

Andrew Plumb was raving about this in the ArtEngine listserv.

This is a crazy-awesome idea and amazing performance art to boot!

  1. I’m not sure. I think it’s pretty slow. Making things in 3d is already a slow process.

    But at least the area being sintered is pretty big. Makes for course work but very interesting.

    I think that could be put into a tumbler for smoothing and polishing. Of course it would be a solar tumbler.

  2. Very cool, lots of imagination here. How long did the sintering take? It looks like one day but there were a lot of passes, especially for that first shape.
