3D Printing With Corn Starch

3D Printing
3D Printing McMaster University
The 3D printer uses PLA (Polylactic Acid) filament. PLA is a biodegradable polymer derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, and does not produce UFCs (Ultrafine Particles).

3D Printer Middle Tennessee State University
What materials are used? The Library’s 3D printer uses a plastic made from corn starch called Polylactic Acid or PLA for short. Because PLA is plant based, it will biodegrade over time when exposed to continuous moisture. You can view available colors on our display swatch ring.

These 3D-Printing Spider Robots Could Be The Future Of Construction (article)
These 3D-printing robots – known as SiSpis or Siemens Spiders – have been designed by Siemens researchers at their lab in Princeton, New Jersey. They’re equipped with cameras and laser scanners to understand their surroundings. They then scuttle around, printing layers of a plastic-like substance made from cornstarch and sugarcane, much like the mechanism of a conventional 3D printer but with much more precision and flexibility.

It is my opinion that both making plastics, and handling products made from 3D printers can be dangerous for the corn allergic. The fact that 3D Printers are being used in public libraries where people typically will not be aware of the danger to corn allergic is I believe particularly potentially dangerous.
