A 3D printed igloo made of salt

<p> The US <strong>3D printing company</strong> <a href="http://www.emergingobjects.com/">Emerging Objects is</a> focusing its research on the development of innovative materials for <strong>large format 3D printing</strong> . Its two founders, Ronald Rael and San Fratello, are particularly interested in building and furnishing components that can be considered sustainable, inexpensive, solid and recyclable. Their latest full-size <strong>3D creation</strong> was made from salt harvested in San Francisco Bay. This is an igloo printed in 3D. <a href="http://www.emergingobjects.com/projects/saltygloo/">Saltygloo</a> is therefore entirely composed of salt bricks printed in 3D glued together by glue, also based on salt. For both designers, this material is solid, lightweight, inexpensive and translucent, so it is perfect for the realization of this type of structure. </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-1-1.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-1-1.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-3.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-3.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-2.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-2.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-4.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-4.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-5.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-5.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-6.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-6.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-7.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/saltroom-emerging-objects-printed-3D-impression-3D-sel-cults3D-cults-fichier-saltygloo-7.jpg" alt="saltroom emerging objects printed 3D 3D printing salt cults3D cults file saltygloo igloo 3D printed"></a> </p><p> source: <a href="http://www.3ders.org/articles/20131212-emerging-objects-3d-printed-a-pavilion-entirely-out-of-salt.html">3ders</a> </p>
