Whenever anyone mentions the words ‘craft’ and ‘digital craftsmanship’, I immediately think about the wood 3D printing material used for CubePro, which is a combination between wood art and 3D printing – a very, as I believe, good example for digital making things.
Wood 3D printing material, as I understand it, is using normal wood, which is a very easy to find and interesting material, along with the 3D printing technique to finally create artistic, unique and long-lasting products. As you can see in the video below, a block of wood will be put into the 3D printing machine to cut and hew into a predetermined shape.
This product is made using mainly 3D printing process. With high tech 3D printing, wood now has become an ideal material with higher complexity and detail that can be used to create lots of cool stuffs. Wood 3D printing material becomes a new level of digital craftsmanship and suitable for creating artistic decorating pieces.
Different from other 3D printing materials selling on the marketplace, wood 3D printing material has the special abilities to seal, drill, lacquer, etc. An interesting thing about this is after the printing process, the products made from it will have the look, feel and scent which are similar to the real wood piece.
