FOC Explores 3D Paper Printing

FOC Explores 3D Paper Printing

We’ve written a few times about the amazing paper 3D printer from MCOR, which uses common A4 paper as it’s build material. Now we see it being used by a professional design firm: Freedom Of Creation.


They’ve been experimenting with the device and produced the iPhone cover shown above. As you can see, they slipped in a stack of rainbow-colored paper into the MCOR’s input hopper, resulting the multicoloured iPhone cover. With paper printing, the object can be colored before it’s even made!

Some comments from FOC on this technology:

What is intriguing about printing in paper is that the process itself is fairly simple, its about stacking layers of paper and removing what you don’t need.

It’s the greenest and most low-cost technology for 3D printing, therefore Freedom Of Creations’ Imagineering department is researching possible applications ranging from collection products to scale models and promotional material for clients.

It sounds like they’ll be making good use of the technology in coming months. Can we have that in green?

  1. Nice work of printer. I appreciate this kind of creative work. Recently I have searched a way to to use shredded papers in decoration. I have never used any 3D printer. I would like to buy one. recently I have bought a new Shredder from NeedA Shredder. It is doing a good job.
