Powder Power! Pwdr Is an Open-Source 3D Powder Printer That You Can Build
By Cassandra Khaw
3D printing is slowly becoming the next big thing. Over the last few weeks, we’ve heard of people making everything from blood vessels to kid-sized exoskeletons–the possibilities seem almost endless. But what if you’re too broke to buy yourself a 3D printer and too cool make yet another RepRep 3D printer? The answer is simple: cement your individuality and build yourself a Pwdr instead.
The current model can make use of materials like gypsum, ceramics, concrete, and sugar, to name a few. However, once the SLS process becomes fully supported, you will be able to construct things out of materials such as ABS, PP, Nylon and a variety of metals.
