3D Printer That Prints Soil And Grass

Students of University of Maribor, Make A 3D Printer That Prints Soil And Grass.It’s a CNC machine (which means it’s entirely computer controlled) that prints using a mixture of grass seeds, soil and water. The images will sprout grass later on, making for some crazy green designs.

The project Print Green has been designed for the Intermedia Arts course at University of Maribor, under the mentorship of prof. Dušan Zidar as the subject holder. PRINT GREEN encompasses Students of the Faculty of Education Maribor, Department of Fine Arts, group consists of Maja Petek, Tina Zidanšek, Urška Skaza, Danica Rženičnik and Simon Tržan, who created the printer.

The specialy adapted CNC machine was designed as a “green” printer: instead of an ink it uses a mixture of soil, water and grass seeds, thus enabling the motives being printed out to grow green in time with proper care.
