    This sort of thing blows me away. Remember 10 years ago watching something like this in a movie and thinking "no way can that ever be possible". But yet, here we are...

    I watched this a few days ago and I still wonder how they scan the inside moving parts. I don't think that scanner does it.

    I'll be really impressed when someone combines the two so we can have working chocolate wrenches.

    I am building my own and actually have for a while (because I have other things going on but basically instead of trying to build a cnc LOL or a water jet another LOL i opted to go with this for rapid prototyping)...redesigning the frame for this one to be less mobile and more heavy weight and permanent like a floor mounted machine with a feeding system.

    People also make extruder heads for it and make it build electrical circuits but it's not limited to that...just consider the machine itself a cartesian coordinate system and any tool you can mount can do anything assuming you know how to design a tooling pattern.

    I need to finish this thing...but yeah I am glad I am not the only one that thought this was awesome enough to do something about :)
