Well, this is quite something!!

On Twitter I found this interesting experiment that someone has done in the Coda Apeldoorn. In the cultural center in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, there is this so called FabLab, where you can experiment with technology. Obviously last summer someone created a new rubber gasket for an Ericofon with a 3D printer. Cool!!

Three notes on the picture: the picture was taken from Twitter, the person in the picture is not me (!!) and the color of the gaskets is terrible 🙂

The gasket was printed in 3D with the use of PLA (PolyLactic Acid). This is not actually a plastic as you would suspect but a substance made of wheat, corn and sugarbeets. It is much more sustainable than ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) which is actually made out of oil. A very nice experiment!

    Heb je toevallig een 3D-stl van de onderring van CODA Apeldoorn? Ik heb er eentje gevonden op Thingiverse, maar ik ben er niet ondersteboven van.

      Nee, helaas heb ik daar geen bestand van. Ik heb zelf ook geen 3D printer trouwens. Vraag me ook af of het print materiaal flexibel genoeg is.
