How to work from bio-materials? How 3D printing and filament composition can be linked to local identities and craft techniques? Today 3D printing from algae based bio-materials is being developed in different countries. This research will investigate how the opportunities offered by those new materials can be linked to traditional craft knowledge in Belgium. The goal is to develop hybrid manufacturing processes and contribute to a local and culturally-based approach to 3D printing.
