#1148: 3D-Prototaping

Today’s invention is a way to create computer-generated printed shapes on a roll of transparent tape.

These shapes are printed accurately so that when the roll is manufactured, translucent images of 3-D objects appear within the body of the tape (each made up of printing on successive ‘slices’ of tape).

This could be used to draw attention to an otherwise unattractive product, for marketing purposes.

  1. I’ve just come across this artwork
    I’m sure a stack of clear CDs in a jukebox, eg, could be similarly embellished.
