Enter Mcor Technologies and its incredibly cool 3D inkjet printer called Iris. The newly announced model will not only create models out of everyday printing paper, but it can also print details on them with color ink.
According to Gizmodo, the Iris printer slices layers of paper as they are glued together to create a 3D model. At the same time, it spays color i on the edges of each visible layer.
In the end, you get a completely biodegradable object that’s also a high-resolution 3D printout (thanks to the thinness of paper) and far more detailed than what extruded plastics could ever create.
