Filament for 3D printing from funeral ashes

funeral ashes

Lately we are used to seeing how many companies try to take advantage of all kinds of waste to manufacture filaments for 3D printing, what we could not imagine, at least I, was that someone could come up with the idea of use funeral ashes to precisely create a filament with which to create any type of object that our minds can haunt.

This is precisely the idea behind the creation of narbon, a Spanish company that defines itself as a company specialized in communication and innovation services in the funeral sector. Perhaps due to this definition, and above all to their great interest in the use of new technologies, their leaders have had no choice but to set your sights on 3D printing and all the possibilities that it offers.

Narbon, a Spanish company capable of manufacturing objects by 3D printing using funeral ashes

One of the ideas they have had in Narbon responds to the launch of 3D Memories, a kind of service in which anyone can print in 3D, using the ashes of a deceased person, a memory of the same. Apparently the company has already patented the technology that makes this possible and that allows funeral ashes to be mixed with the base material from which the 3D printer would work.

In case you are interested in what this company offers us, just tell you that it takes care of the entire process. The only thing we would have to do is contact them, from there the funeral home would be in charge of sending the proportional part of the ashes they need, the amount will depend on the object to be manufactured and 100% of them will never be used, and in a week we will receive the object at home.
