3D printed glow-in-dark turkey

Posted Nov 26, 2016

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Thanksgiving is one of the largest holidays in the U.S., and the tradition is to eat turkey. I did the same, but my turkey was a free-range, organic variety. We hosted Thanksgiving together with our neighbor, and he was responsible for purchasing the turkey. I was apparently so particular about the turkey that he said he even checked its resume and interviewed its friends to make sure it had a happy life before it ended up on our table. 😉

Despite that Thanksgiving was yesterday, if you live in the United States, you are probably eating turkey today as well. And you will eat turkey tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow. And perhaps even have turkey left for Monday’s lunch box. Turkeys are simply huge! Anyway, if you haven’t had enough for turkey, here is a time-lapse video of a glow-in-dark 3D printed plastic turkey. My very first 3D printing time-lapse video and it was produced a year ago. Enjoy!

P.S. This particular turkey was printed in ABS, which is a filament that is not bio-based. When I did it, I hadn’t yet discovered glow-in-dark PLA filaments, which are made from corn.
