I’ve been covering the 3D printing space for quite some time now, so my fascination with watching a 3D printer in action has somewhat worn off. However, whenever I come across one of Mcor Technologies’ paper based 3D printers, such as the IRIS HD or Matrix 300+ at trade shows, I still can’t resist the temptation of watching one of these machines in action. Usually it’s Mcor Director of Marketing, Julie Reece, who is on hand to show me some of their latest and greatest 3D printed objects, and I always walk away saying, “Wow!”.
Recently, however, one artist named Joanne Hayek, and her company, VANINA took things to an entirely new level with the creation of 3D printed jewelry. VANINA is known for the creation all kinds of unique jewelry, much of which is made out of paper, specifically the devalued Lebanese Lira. Recently, Hayek and her partner Tatiana Fayad decided to begin utilizing 3D printing in their creation of jewelry, and the printer that they chose was none other than an Mcor machine.
