At MRRF I got in a discussion with Daniel Halvorson and @Luke_Cunningham. We decided that we would love to build an infinite Z printer. I will invite them to post here but everyone is welcome.
The basic concept is that you use the print itself to support the printer.
There are a lot of details to throw around at this point. I plan to use this thread to toss ideas around until it seems we are converging on a rough game plan.
Here are two questions to get us going. I am sure they will create many more questions.
- What is the 2D motion platform?
- How do you lift the 2D motion platform?
