How it's made:
3D printing is a process for forming physical objects from a computer generated model. This method of additive manufacturing is done by successively adding material layer by layer.
The material we use is PLA or polylactic acid. PLA is a biodegradable and bioactive polyester that derives from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, or sugarcane.
There are numerous possibilities for 3D printing, including prosthetics, machinery, medical models. At R+D we like to make designs with an eye towards fun kitsch.
