Here Is The World’s Smallest 3D-Printed Press Created By The Open Press Project

Published 11 months ago

The Open Press Project was started by Martin Schneider and Dominik Schmitz, two designers from Cologne, Germany.  They launched the world’s first fully functional 3D-printed etching press in 2018 as they “wanted to give more people the option to use them for their art in places where printmaking wasn’t possible before.”

Now, these designers have created Open Press XS, which is the tiniest ever printing press. The fully functional press was created to “be used for any intaglio and relief technique, like drypoint, etching, engraving, or linocuts and woodcuts of up to 13 millimeter thickness.”

Although the XS version is no longer available and they do not plan on making more of them for now, you can get the regular version (slightly bigger than the XS model) here.
