    Using 3D printing to Make an Embossed Leather Book Cover

    Have you ever considered how books are put together, or how those beautiful--and often ornamental--covers on hardback books are created? If you are a fan of design, 3D printing, and old-fashioned books, this may be a project you would enjoy greatly, putting together and old and new technologies--ancient ones, in fact,--to make an embossed book cover. Luc Volders of the Netherlands, an accountant by day and technogeek in his free time, leads you through his latest, and quite easy, project which involves picking out a design, 3D printing it, and pressing it for the final product.

    Ah now i do have use for embossing leather, will read with interest :-)

    Not terribly useful and I only have real leather :-)

    But a nice looking result regardless.

    Hi, I never thought about it, but it is really interesting to know how it works!

    I'm a lover of these designs and old-fashioned books, so I'm interested in your project that combines new and old technologies. I think you worked on such a cover for a long time before you got such a result. Recently I was preparing a research paper on new and old technologies and your work is a good example of how they count. here's a review of the service that helped me. In my opinion, it turned out to be very interesting work.
