First Fully 3D Printed Mobile
– March 7th 2013 –
Here’s a photo of our first test print of a fully 3D printed mobile. Not very elegant yet, but it’s working, balance and all! This probably is the first fully 3D printed mobile ever made. I’ve done an extensive online search and couldn’t find anyone else making them. Also because I’ve been making handmade mobiles for years I have daily Google and Twitter alerts set up. Nothing ever came up about a fully 3D printed mobile. I doubt someone would have been able to make one and then didn’t post it online. This is not the easiest thing to come up with and an exciting thing to show off, and anyone with the technical skills to pull this off would likely be active online too.
