3D Printing is an emerging technology, but one that has yet to be fully democratised, or sustainably developed. I decided to make this low-tech 3D printer from scrap. It uses a candle to melt wax, and our hands to move the printer head. Using the wax 3D printer you can create your own objects.
I found it interesting to form casts from existing objects in wax. This can then be peeled off, to give the negative of the object, with the intricate drip texture of the wax. This is then dipped into slip ceramic or plaster to make it more permanent.
