Amazing 3-D Printer

This will blow your mind.

They’ve invented a 3-Dimensional Printer that scans a 3-dimensional object, such as a wrench, and then “prints” — reproduces — a replica of the object from some white powder.

In this video, you’ll see the 3-D Printer reproduce a wrench — that actually is a wrench!


H/t my dear friend Bill O.

This is what Wikipedia says about 3-D Printing:

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material…. Advanced 3D printing technologies yield models that can serve as product prototypes.

A 3D printer works by taking a 3D computer file and constructing from it a series of cross-sectional slices. Each slice is then printed one on top of the other to create the 3D object.

Since 2003 there has been large growth in the sale of 3D printers. Additionally, the cost of 3D printers has declined.The technology also finds use in the jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, among others.


p style=”padding-left:30px;”>One method of 3D printing consists of an inkjet printing system. The printer creates the model one layer at a time by spreading a layer of powder (plaster, or resins) and inkjet printing a binder in the cross-section of the part. The process is repeated until every layer is printed. This technology is the only one that allows for the printing of full colour prototypes…. It is also recognized as the fastest method.

Hmm, if the 3D printer reproduces a wrench, why not a credit card? The cynic in me can’t help but think of criminals salivating over this new technology….

  1. Nice, now I can finally print me a Corvette instead of buying one!

  2. maybe obama and the rest of our woeful leaders could each print a picture of a brain then they could actually say they have one.

  3. Increase of Knowledge Daniel 12:4

  4. Thomas Morato

    Wonder if it can print a validated original long form?

  5. That is freaking AMAZING!!!

  6. whoa!

  7. i remember as a child watching the “adventures of tennessee tuxedo” and one of the characters a Mr. Whoopie had a 3d bb a 3dimensional blackboard.
