Designers aim to bring children's ideas to life with an easy-to-use home 3D printer.

Designers Artur Tchoukanov & Joris Peels have come up with the concept for an easy-to-use gadget that builds 3D objects from children's designs. The Origo 3D printer is described as ‘a simple, low cost, low barrier 3D printer using reusable, eco-friendly material suitable for the needs of children.' Sketches drawn using 3D modelling program 3Dtin are brought to life and created in plastic inside the printer.
