The 3D printers contribution to save the environment

3D printers to rebuild Corals.

Warming temperatures, acidification, and other factors can be vital for the ocean´s health. Corals reef population is declining because of environmental conditions.
Using large 3D printers for coral reef designing and rebuilding can be the key to a potential ecosystem.

The 3D printer’s contribution to saving environment rebuilding ceramic corals reefs.
According to Ezri Tarazi, an industrial design professor at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, who is collaborating with other researchers from his university, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Bar-Ilan University on the project, “As a diver, I was seeing the early signs of this five years ago. I was thinking, how can we take a reef that’s totally collapsing—which means there are no branches of corals anymore because they collapse, and fish cannot hide—and how can we reignite life in it? Because I’m an industrial designer, the idea to print corals was the first thing coming to mind.”
