Had no idea the application of 3D printing had come so far.

I got a kick out of a guy sitting in front of a laptop controlling a Goliath of a x/y gantry.

I know a guy who made some large scale motor drivers for 2 3D printed home projects so for me it’s good to see it “finally” picking up steam. The projects resulted in a castle being built in a backyard and another was making homes in a South American jungle. All along I was figuring it was not happening here because of massive lobbying by the lumber industry and/or miles of red tape in permitting processes.

It figures it takes a group like Habitat for Humanity to kick things into gear here. But I’m still surprised it’s not a cable based setup as opposed to a standard Cartesian configuration.
