Today there are virtually endless flavours of e-liquid that smokers can purchase with various level of nicotine. This allows for variety as well as a means for smokers to gradually reduce nicotine levels and completely quit smoking altogether. While vaping has really been catching on, Meredith Agens, a co-founder of Rex Vapor, saw a small problem with the current state of affairs within the industry.
“It’s easy to promote vaping as a harm reduction method from a health standpoint, an oddly frequent objection was that vaporizers were ugly, clunky, or looked more like a medical device than a fashion statement. I’d gotten into ‘hobby’ 3D printing by then, and I realized that I could combine my interests to eliminate this objection and help make vaping the only rational choice for nicotine delivery…”
Currently Rex Vapor is 3D printing three separate models: the Feng, Quartz, and Victoria. It takes approximately one hour to 3D print four of the Victoria or Quartz vaporizers, or three of the Feng devices. They are 3D printed in a high tensile polyamide powder, and Agens says that they are 100% safe to use. Read full article
