We created this functioning 3d printed prototype for the Zelda Pump that was used for live testing. Created as a full scale prototype, it was tested pumping gallons of water in seconds without the use of hydro! Watch the video to see it in action.
We recently displayed our 3d printed lego tractor at a trade show that was a big hit! We made this Lego K'nex tractor with 720 individual 3d printed pieces using our SLS technology, nylon and our own developed post colouring process for the Toronto Design and Manufacturing Show.
