We can move into our castle just as soon as we print it out

Thursday, 4 December, 2014

If the idea of 3D printing is something you’ve still not quite managed to grasp, then this clip of Andrey Rudenko “printing out” a castle he recently… built, might bring you up to speed.

It seems to me printing any given object is one thing, but the real work appears to lie in creating the “printing” device. Surely a mechanism that, say, prints out shag pile carpets would differ greatly from one that will produce cars.

So how do we bring such printers into existence, or there is like a master printer that prints out the sort of 3D printer that we need?
