3D print and raw earth plaster

Recommended Posts

Posted · 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:

That's really neat!

You need to make one with mini crop circles and then roll them around in unsuspecting and odd places. :p

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:

I finaly took some time to make a complete lamp out of the same technic. Just reusing an old broken lamp, printing the lamp in one part and plastering with white natural clay:

And here is a video that let better see the shape of the lamp, with some images of the whole process:

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