3D Photocopying!

You may or may not have heard of 3D photocopying. That's right, copying things in 3D.

The machine uses a type of 'high tech glue gun' that is connected to a computer. The printer then melts the roll of glue at around 260 degrees and builds up the object layer by layer.

In the video you will see a object being created that is used to keep your earphones tidy (wrapped around it).

The printer even build objects with movable parts!
