3D printing sure has progressed a lot in little time. You can now 3D print almost anything. Recently, a 3D printer has been developed by the University of Maribor in Slovenia by the name of printGreen that allows users to print a growing garden in any desired shape.

It is a modified CNC printer and extrudes a damp and clay-like soil that is filled with small seeds that grow up into grass. 3D Printing Your Garden Is A Reality Now

The printer’s design and building was carried out by a group of students from the University’s Intermedia Arts program and is aimed at combining nature, art and technology. It might seem like a bizarre idea at first, however, in future it could find its use as means of producing food in small, efficient and environmentally friendly spaces.3D Printing Your Garden Is A Reality Now 2
