Protopiper: tape-gun-based 3D printer extrudes full-size furniture prototypes


[Read the post]


My goodness that would be a fun toy to build forts around the house with the kids.


correction: even without kids


I was disappointed to see a perfectly good prank foiled around 00:34 when those people sat on the couch which was NOT skilfully covered proto-pipe.


Point taken!


This would be a great way to prototype new Internet nodes, which are just a series of tubes.


It would certainly be less unpleasant than some network simulating software I’ve unfortunately been exposed to…



It would be pretty cool if you could extrude a full sized furniture prototype out of a gun, somehow, though.


If 3M is smart, they will buy this idea immediately. Can you imagine how much more tape they’d sell if this took off as a toy?
