Growing mushrooms in 3d-printed mold – results


Result is very light material, and relatively stiff, specially in parts where there was good overgrowing. There are some parts that mycelium has not overgrown enough, and they are not stiff and It’ too much air. I think this would be fixed if we would use more refined substrate material, maybe much more milled stem.

There was just a little shrinkage and the mushroom object has quite accurate shape, defined by 3d-printed mold.

It was dried in dehydrator.
