Pocket Gutenberg, a 3D-Printed Press


Chris Fenton (you may recall his 3D-printed mechanical computer) designed this cool Pocket Gutenberg that takes an inked, 3D-printed text plate and presses it into paper using a customized text plate. Simply customize the plate in MakerBot Customizer, print it out and add it to the press!

    Wow. I’m just thinking if a whole press could be mad, rollers and all, like a small KELSEY VINTAGE LETTERPRESS PRINTING PRESS the tabletop kind. this is awesome for a business card type thing too, where you just make the card right there. Hmmmmmm
