Earlier today I dropped into Bits from Bytes HQ in Clevedon and met up with someone I’ve been “talking” with on the BfB forum for well over a year. And what a fantastic meeting it turned out to be. Dries Verbruggen (known to many as “Unfold”) has come over from Belgium to spend a couple of days with the guys from BfB working on a design for a new RapMan extruder. Only this time it is for ceramics, potato and chocolate… or any other “paste” material. And it looks to me like they have hit upon a really interesting design…. The chocolate looked yummy too!
Dries is a really talented guy… not certain whether to call him an artist, designer or ??? and you can check out some of his work on his website http://www.unfold.be/pages/projects .
I can’t wait to get my hands on the new extruder when it goes into production… already I’m thinking of projects that we could do in schools.
You can see the RapMan printing clay and potato on YouTube
