Another question from Maker Faire from a family was – “What materials can you build using a MakerBot?” I told them there was no limit to what they could create with a MakerBot. While the most obvious use was with plastic, a MakerBot can help you create nearly anything you want out of nearly any kind of material.
Want gold, silver, copper, bronze, or any other metal? Use the lost-wax casting technique for an amazing result. How about frosting, chocolate, jell-o, wax, or ice? Need an ink stamp, wax stamp, embossing stamp, cookie cutter, or stencil?
What’s that? You just have to MakerBot a vegetable? Yeah, you can even do that too.
This is what it’s like to live in the future.
