This is intended to demonstrate the feasibility of 3D printing sustainable dwellings, and has in part been funded by the development and sale of far more ‘traditional’ desktop 3D printers that extrude thermoplastics. It is therefore hardly surprising that additive manufacturing enthusiasts have for some years been experimenting with the 3D printing of food. For example, in Spain a research group called Robots in Gastronomy have developed a 3D printer called FoodForm that can extrude edible build materials onto any surface, including a hot grill or frying pan, or a chilled anti-griddle.
This results in strong binding of the metal with virtually the same metallurgy as traditionally-made metal parts. [After printout] the metal part needs to undergo an easy sintering process, with [any] supports removed simply and with almost no manual intervention. XJet claim that their NJP technology will 3D print very high resolution metal parts far faster and at a lower cost than any other direct metal 3D printing technique. The first build material is stainless steel, with ‘other major metals’ planned.
Indeed, as I shall discuss in chapter 7, it is theoretically possible that future domestic fabricators will cultivate their own bioplastic filaments. WOOD & METAL COMPOSITE FILAMENTS At the consumer and prosumer end of the material extrusion marketplace, one of the most notable developments over the past few years has been the arrival of specialist composite filaments. These combine a thermoplastic with another material, and increasingly offer amazing new low-cost 3D printing possibilities. As the name suggests, Laywood is a composite of wood (effectively sawdust) and a thermoplastic, and can be 3D printed to make objects that actually feel and smell like wood.
