The machine actually don't print new things. All thing are transported back trough time from the future when they are no longer used and recycled in this sustainable matter.

And, yeah it also works around that issue with linear guides.


Put on your goggles and crank out some steam & grease

I see that this is currently just a concept, but I feel like with a little extra thought, a very similar mechanism COULD make a working 3-dimensionally movable contraption, which can then be fitted with an extruder. Mind if I take a crack at it?

Oh please do have a crack.

Still would make a great 3d printed art piece. have u fully printed one out ?

No sorry just these concept illustrations.

I have no way to open a .skp file. Do you have this thing in a .stl that can be used to print with?

Files are provided as posted. The design obviously never been targeted for, or is in any way suitable for print.

I don't see any motors, does it run on aether from a transponder?

I am confused. Is this real? Does it work?

Neat. There are three dimensional carvers. They work with a three dimensional pantograph run over the original item as a rotary tool grinds away the wood.
