3D Printing on the Beach

3D Printing on the Beach

For many of us the dream of owning a 3D printer is just that at present. With the cost of purchasing and running one of the beasts I don’t think I (or any of my colleagues here) will be able to justify the investment for some time. However on my printer related internet adventures I came across a lovely, simply gadget that lets you not only 3D print on a budget, but on the beach as well.

Enter the “Baudino Spilling Funnel” by HABA. Sand and water are mixed within the spilling funnel and slowly trickle the building material out of the spout. You can then build sandcastles with the mixture layer by layer in the very same way that a 3D printer operates. The whole process seems a lot less hands on than traditional sandcastles building and if the promotional photos are to be believed then the results are also a lot less pretty.

It does however look like a genuinely fun product and is an interesting spin on 3D printing for a guy like me who lives for fun little gadgets. I could not find anyone selling them in the UK at present but is certainly something I would be interested in once my son is big enough to enjoy it.

What are your thoughts on the Baudino Spilling Funnel? Is it something you would ever consider or do you prefer to do things the traditional way?
