Delft blue houses made with 3D printers



While KLM has been well-known for their house-shaped bottles of genever for decades, Amsterdam company Local Makers, which sells 3D printers, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to create customised miniature houses. The campaign is more than half way there, but in a few days either these cute houses will be made or not at all.

Local Makers can create a digital 3D model of any home following using photographs and mapping software such as Google Streetview. After creating a precise 3D model of the home, they print it using Ultimaker 3D printers and bioplastic material. The houses are then sanded and prepared to be painted by hand, Delft blue style, a process that takes two days.
