Analogue has found a way in this age of digital 3D printing. A Dutch designer christened Daniel de Bruin has created a unique 3D printer powered completely by a weight mechanism and gravity.

Bruin claims his contraption is the world’s first analogue 3D printer. He demonstrated the capabilities of his machine by 3D printing beautifully shaped clay vases.

The analogue 3D printer is fitted with a weight of 22 pounds that can be lifted to turn on the 3D printing machine. The shape and form of the 3D printed object are determined by the shape of an aluminium wire that defines the outline of the object.

The wire can be modified and used to 3D print various objects of different shapes and volumes. Bruin’s machine keeps the designer involved in the creation process, unlike the mechanised, digital 3D printers. He believes that an analogue 3D printer will give a greater sense of accomplishment to the artists. See more images of the 3D printer below:
