Awesome. Now, that's what I'm talkin' about. :-)

To previous poster: This is an experiment, not a commercial product. Probably $250k for the generic robot arm and other equipment, and it doesn't use STL (polygon) models.

Lego makes a fine robot arm.

The material must have a very fast curing time. It's very impressive and innovative idea.

It helps that the videos are time-lapse, as indicated by the twitchy reflections off the metallic extruder parts.

Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to
take a look. I'm definitely enjoying the information. I'm book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
Exceptional blog and excellent design.

'The method that we call Anti-gravity Object Modeling has a patent-pending status.'

So, fishermen making their nets will be asked to cease and desist?

Will they ban crystal growing?

Isn't (if they're willing to stretch the definition of 'anti-gravity') any current 3D printing system that can raise the printing platform also 'anti-gravity'?
