3D print and raw earth plaster

I staid a long time without posting, but not without printing ! So I will try to get back on the forum. Here is one of the experiments I made for a workshop with children:

I took the idea of the old rubber rolls for printing I found in my house, and adapted it to 3D print. And as I love raw earth buildings, I used it to make some drawings on raw earth plaster:

First step is modelling in Blender the roll, then put some drawings on it (with sculpt mode or here with procedural textures):

Then of course slice it with Cura

As you can see it's not fast to print.

Then put it on a paint roll (of course the 3D model must fit your 3D roll)

Then you can use it on a fresh mud plaster: natural, beautiful and with no harm. Of course some try and error are needed, and my long experience with earth plaster helped a lot.

Depending on the texture, you can get seamless results

Don't forget to clean the roll, but I quite loved it dirty and it gave me idea for the next topic:

And if realy you don't want environment friendly materials, you cans of course use it on concrete for anti-slippery floors for example:

    Thanks for the comments.

    The dirty roll gave me an idea by the way: to use it to set the transparancy of some transparent printed objects: I fill it with mud, then clean it but leave some clay in the holes. I realy like the way the light plays with it:

    Really great results! Love the light shining through the pattern.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
