3D Printing onto Thermochromics – It GLOWS!!!!

A little something I was experimenting with a wee while ago… I’m hoping to pick this up again soon…

Very pretty results if nothing else.. I really liked the way you could track the nozzle not only by it’s movement and noise but also the heat exchange changing the colour of the surface it was printing onto…

The picture below shows only the nozzle’s track and no polymer yet!

The picture below shows how the yellow polymer glows as the magenta thermochromic dye changes under the heat. It’s a 31 degree magenta thermochromic dye on silk that I printed the polymer onto with the Ultimaker 3D printer.

I love this guys work and his statement that the technical skills you have will eventually become outdated is in some ways true! I advocate Lo-Tec!!!!!!!

LOVE the SIMPLICITY… It’s that word again folks!
