3D printing of seaweed is now possible thanks to the project of the Luma workshop and in partnership with LA FERME 3D.
The 3D Farm entrusted us with the project of developing a PLA filament with added algae from the Camargue or the region around Arles. After supplying us with Spirulina, the Corextrusion team extruded PLA virgin then additivated with different rates spirulina (dried seaweed then micronized). The aim was to promote local resources in order to create natural pigments. By playing on the amount of algae additive we get different shades of colors. Printed on Ultimaker printers, designers create antique objects that they reproduce in 3D by valuing natural resources.
