You may know that I think 3D printing is the coolest thing since Star Trek. With applications in the fields of dentistry, medicine, automotives, art, manufacturing, aerospace, toys and more, this technology (available in many processes and materials) builds real 3D parts in a layer-by-layer fashion. Mcor Technologies of Dunleer, County Louth, Ireland, markets a system that adheres ordinary paper, of any color, one piece to the next, while cutting it to a shape guided by a computer-aided design (CAD) file.
I really like this equipment due to its simplicity and the fact that you can even use paper that’s been printed on and destined for recycling. Check out Mcor Technologies – they’re starting to market in the U.S. and will be exhibiting at the SME RAPID show in Atlanta in May.
