Rapid Tooling – 3D Printed Manufacture

Material Narration

The idea of the open source 3D printing is very young – also the technology! Theoretically you can print your own cup at the exact moment you need one. But the material variety for the printer is very small and who wants to drink their espresso from a plastic cup?

The Idea

Rapid Tooling

With the link between rapid prototyping, rapid tooling and common household objects you can create your own, individual cups and plates, easily. Make them out of ceramic, clay or even concrete – this is yours now!


The project was produced in cooperation with Maja Dika
