Imagine being able to 3D print your own garden. Students at the University of Maribor in Slovenia; Maja Petek, Tina Zidanšek, Urška Skaza, Danica Rženičnik and Simon Tržan worked together on their project Print Green, a 3D printer which ‘prints’ greenery. The ‘ink’ of the machine is a mixture of soil, seeds, and water which can be programmed to produce moulds in any customised design. After being ‘printed’ the form begins to sprout grass from the organic material. The project’s mission was to combine art, technology and nature to push the boundaries of 3D printing to produce living forms.
