Ultimarker: Combines 3D Printing and Augmented Reality #3dthursday

Check out this great project from Dutch artist Sander Veenhof and designer Joris van Tubergen which combines 3D printing and augmented reality, Ultimarker:

Both 3D printing and augmented reality are seen as the two most impactful and radical innovations of our time. Thanks to these techniques, we now to live in a true DIY world. Want something? Make it! Be it not ‘for real’, then virtual.

Check the Ultimarker video to see what we mean!
