Nice round up of VUW student work – creating 3D printers @ Ponoko via Beyond the beyond.

Last week the 3rd year Industrial Design students at Victoria University presented the prototypes of the 3D printers they had designed. The challenge was to design and make a “green” 3D printer in 4 weeks with a limited budget. The students innovative thinking looked at ways to make use of waste material and repurpose it into new objects.
‘Stack’ used the waste paper from generated by a bank and a ‘steampunk’ sewing machine to create layered forms based on an interpretation of the banks statistical data.
