If you are not a fan of Origami pot that matures with your plant, you are bound to get impressed by this innovative printer, which is capable of drawing living plants.
They created their first Green 3D Printer in 2013. Recently, they have decided to start the project PrintGreen, which is building on-demand printers.
The machine or printer has the capability to create living plants through printing various shapes or letters.
The eco-friendly printer, PrintGreen was originally created by Tina Zidanšek, Simon Tržan, Danica Rženičnik, Maja Petek and Urška Skaza along with the participation of their mentor Dušan Zidar. They are currently studying at the University of Maribor in Slovenia. The goal of these students is to combine the technology, art, and nature.
The organic ink of the printer includes water, soil, and seeds, which can be printed in any shape or letter. As soon as the ink dries, the mixture not only keeps its form but also begins to sprout grass from the organic material.
Furthermore, the printer is fully capable of printing along the z-axis to create sculptural shapes. Since there are no seeds in the structure, the top layer is designed in a way that its looks similar to a potted planter (the grass layer).
As compared to old motto of printing “think before you print,” they are asking their followers to, “print, because it is green” (slogan of this unique projectt).
