 I guess this only works for small objects? I normally use a light hammer to remove objects from my print bed.
Actually it's not using the nozzle, but the fanduct to push the print of the platform. 
Here is a video where you can how a print is ejected and falls in the catch bin: https://vimeo.com/54961589
 That video is hilarious. I don't know where the robot went but it sure didn't land in any catchbin :-)
Careful when printing ninja robots.

Instructions

Laser cut the wood file in 4mm wood and one of the perspex files in 2mm perspex (depending on how high you want your catch bin to be). Use 3M hex nuts and 3M bolts of 10 mm to assemble the catch bin.
Wait, auto eject?  What did I miss?
How are the parts ejected? I can't see any mechanism in the photo.
I have seen ultimakers "eject" parts at the 3d printing event in eindhoven.
Ejecting is pushing the printed object out by hitting it with the nozzle. At first glance this seems like a bad idea for the nozzle but it works for the ulitmaker people.
