If one your principles is "No to wasting paper materials", then you'll surely love this 3D printer. Mcor Technologies, one of the well known developers when it comes to three dimensional printer equipment, has unveiled a new model of 3D printer called the "Iris". Back in 2008, the Matrix 3D printer which was also developed by Mcor Technologies, created a buzz in the printing industry by creating 3D models made from a stack of regular old copier paper.

By unveiling a new model, new innovation comes along, with Iris, colors and variations are now brought into your creations. The mechanism from the original Matrix still remains, this new model slices and glues layer after layer of paper together to exquisitely build up a three dimensional model of an object. But like I've said, color is now introduce with the new model, through an additional process the final model will have a visible design and color.

What concerns me more is it's capability of using paper materials instead of plastic polymers in order to create three dimensional models. You see, paper waste is still a problem we should be concern of, the amount of paper materials we used is somewhat double the size of the paper products being produced. Not to mention that a huge percentage of these old and used papers are improperly disposed. Printed papers as an example are one of the great contributors of paper wastes, those newspapers, magazines, books, and all other sorts of paper material that are not being reused.

Paper recycling is a great activity, that helps reduce the amount of paper materials that end up in the landfills and incinerators. Also when practicing green printing, it's a good habit or rather a nice way to avoid printing copies of unnecessary files that you can still save as a soft copy. And don't forget to use eco-friendly toner cartridges and ink cartridges for your printer, not only to save money but also to help save the environment.
