3D Printing With Cremated Ashes

Aug 14, 2017 at 4:10 PM ET

New innovations in the cremation industry are helping families create unique ways to remember their deceased loved ones.

Spanish company called Narbon has developed a “3D Memories” service that allows customers to create ceramic objects that are 3D-printed using the ashes of the deceased.

Clients choose a design and color for their selected item and ship the ashes in an urn to Narbon’s facilities. The ashes are then mixed with porcelain and other materials which can then be 3D-printed into a stand alone object or a piece of jewelry.

Instead of wearing grandma’s antique ring, you can just wear grandma!
