Experiment 01; Mycelium Feather¶
First experimentation of the final project, Mycelium Feather.
3D Printing and Laser Cutting¶
For this experiment, i would like to try if the mycelium grow through the holes of a 3D rachis,
The model is 20 cms length and 2 cms width, here's some of the material specifications:
|Filament||Colour||Size||Temperature||File Size||Printing time||z off||Bed Temperature|
|EP||Ivony White||M 750 grs||190°C - 210°C||20 cms||1hr||1 mm||60°C|
The idea is to put this rachis in an Acrylic Petri Dish to pour some medium to let the mycelium grow on the inside of the rachis and in the outside. For the "petri dish" i made a box of 27x4,5x7 cms made out of 5mm traslucent acrylic.
For the Bio part of this experimentation, I made a Malt Medium to let the Reishii mycelium grow, here's the recipe,
MALT - AGAR Medium:
- 200 ml of Water
- 4 grs of Agar-Agar
- 4 grs of Malt Extract
Then i put some pieces of the Reishii inculate plate that we have and then seal the petri dish with parafilm.
I'm gonna let it grow for the following 3 weeks
