3D Printed Flowers – It was only a matter of time…


3D printers are making everything from food to houses, it was only a matter of time until flowers were created. This project, nicknamed Blossom, explores the concept of 3D Printing using dual materials.

“The flower came about as the idea of trying to create this organic form out of this totally non-organic process and material. Basically it’s a curved hollow chamber with flexible rubber. As you inflate it, it creates a gap of air which pushes against the other layer. It then forces itself outward and almost looks like a petal.”

Check it out in the video below.
