Project PrintGreen has an objective; it wishes to create syngery between nature, art and technology. They have transformed 3D printers into on-demand gardners after designing a "green" 3D printer in the year 2013. Now you can produce living designs with the creative aid of technology, the printer produces living prints, printing customized objects in a variety of shapes, sizes and purposes. The printer doesn't use ink, it uses a special mix of soil, water and grass seeds. With proper care, your creation soon sprouts grass from the organic material. The printer was created by students Maja Petek, Tina Zidanšek, Urška Skaza, Danica Rženičnik and Simon Tržan for the Intermedia Arts Course at University of Malibor under the mentorship of Professor Dušan Zidar.
