3D Printer Uses Kinetic Energy

Dutch designer Daniel de Bruin is behind the innovative design of this kinetic 3D-printer. It’s supremely satisfying and entertaining to watch in action.

The machine relies on the kinetic energy generated by a weight and a series of pulleys and gears. It doesn’t use software; instead the machine receives instructions via wire shapes. Thus far, it can make round shapes only, which translates into some pretty cool high-low tech pottery.
