By this time, you all know what a 3D printer is and how handy they can be for tasks like fast prototyping. But almost all printers work in a fairly similar fashion with similar materials, with most smaller printers using some form of thermoplastics. That’s where the printers from Mcor stand out. They do high resolution 3D modeling with ordinary printer paper.
We were very impressed by the creative thinking that went into building a 3D printer that uses standard printer paper (like you’d run through your inkjet to make hard copy documents) as its main printing material. The Mcor printer lays down a layer of paper, a layer of glue, another layer of paper, another layer of glue, on and on, adding color as it goes. The result is a very high resolution model that can come out of the printer in fully-finished color.
