The Fauxbricator by Mockerbot by custom3dstuff Aug 16, 2013

Description

The theme for Burning Man this year is Cargo Cult, which is an amazing story and I suggest you check it out. Basically there were these island natives and during the war they saw military getting supply drops from airplanes, so they started building their own fake runways in hopes that plans would land there and they'd get supplies too. The wikipedia article is worth the read.

I've designed and built the MockerBot Fauxbricator at the Baltimore Node Hackerspace last night and used the laser cutter to cut it all out today at the UMBC PaD Lab. Thanks Amy!

It's not 100% complete yet. and I want to add a few things. The platform can be moved up and down, the fo'struder can move left and right and back and forth. There's even a fo'liment tube to carry the fo'liment.

You could almost make this sort of work with the 3Doodler!

First off, all wood hot-end is genius. This list of pros for this printer is impressive.

No fumes, only the pleasant hint of charred wood.
0% maintenance needed!
Run on the same roll of fo'liment indefinitely.
Uses no electricity to operate, sustainable!

Extremely scalable.

Secondly, is this in hopes Makerbot will send you a printer?
(Or more likely some kind of misguided cease and desist) :-)

I've been thinking of getting a second (quieter) printer for printing at night, and I think this one has potential!

What's the maximum XY speed it can handle? At the max speed, what's it's relative volume to a replicator 1?

Thanks!
