Happy St. Patrick’s Day: 3D Printed Shamrock

Mcor Technologies, an Ireland-based company, recently 3D printed a shamrock to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The shamrock was printed with the company’s unique Matrix 300, the only printer in the world that “uses reams of recycled 8 ½ x 11” paper and water-based adhesive to make 3D objects.”

Gary Mikola, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ business development manager, stated, “We’re thrilled that Mcor Technologies has chosen RAPID 2012 as the first venue to introduce their 3D printer to the United States.”

According to industry analysts, manufacturers like Mcor  “play an important role in creating awareness of an industry that’s expected to reach $3.1 billion by 2016 and $5.2 billion by 2020.”

Pretty cool, right? Read more here.

Oh, and Happy St. Patty’s Day!
