Sid Lee NY Creates World's First 3-B Printer

/ Comments (2)

We love puns. But in all seriousness, here's a "3-B Printing Project" by Sid Lee and The Ebeling Group for Dewar's Highlander Honey.

They created a hive in the shape of a Dewar's bottle and the 80,000 honey bees did the hard work. Check out the trailer for the process below.

The inverted beehive is molded in such a way that it guides the bees to craft their honeycomb hive around the framework provided. As the industrious workers cover their home with beautiful, golden honeycomb, they are creating striking, multi-dimensional masterpieces in custom-shaped molds inspired by the new blend of Dewar’s Highlander Honey. Already, the bees have “printed” a complete 3D wax object in the shape of the whisky bottle, as well as the bust of the Dewar’s Drinking Man, the mascot of true Drinking Men everywhere.
