PRINTING WITH A CUBIFY ZPRINTER

image

The geckos were printed using a 3D Systems ZPrinter 650, which is a powder-based 3D print process where gypsum powder - what drywall is made of - is bonded with glue layer by layer following a 3D geometry. The geometry is loaded into the printer as a WRML file. As the material binds ink is jetted out and essentially paints the model layer by layer as it prints. ZPrinters are the only technology that offers full color 3D printing.
