3D print and raw earth plaster

Recommended Posts

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:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
