paper printables Paper Based 3D Printing Process

skillbuilder paper 158x158 Paper Based 3D Printing ProcessPhil mentioned Ireland’s Mcor Technologies when they premiered on Gizmodo back in 2008. Their monochrome Matrix 300+ printer, shown off in the above video, builds models by laminating regular copy/printer paper using controlled application of adhesive and 2D-mechanical cutting on each layer. A complete description is available in US Patent Application 2011/0094441.

Now, Mcor is at work on Iris, a prototype design that implements a full-color version of their process, presumably adding a color printing step, of some sort, on each sheet of paper. Check the video below to see some early results.
