3D Printed Ice Cubes – Literally the Coolest Thing You’ll See This Week



/ 4 years ago

3D printing is awesome, it has created so many cool and innovative products and solutions to many manufacturing problems, as well as putting most of that power into the hands of consumers. However, it’s also been used to make some things that are simply just awesome, even if they’re not really essential or practical.

This custom 3D Ice Cube maker is full of win and in all honestly, you may never want to enjoy your favourite drink without it again! While not the most practical thing ever, I can see any self-respecting event that wants to impress guests having one of these at their disposal in the near future.

TBWA/Hakuhodo of Tokyo created the “3D on the rocks” to advertise Suntory Whisky. Just like a 3D printer, the device pulls images from Autodesk 123D, but uses a CNC system to carve the ice cubes into the custom shapes with incredible detail. The downside? The cubes took up to six hours each to create, but now that they’ve set the bar for innovation, there’s now the chance for someone else to step in and create something quicker and cheaper to do the same job.

Enjoy the gallery below and let us know which design you would love to see in your next drink!
