I was thinking about this idea of a platform like the wheel-head of a potter’s wheel, attached to a screw-head threading a bolt, that would increase or decrease the z-axis position of an extruder. This idea is very similar to the way this artist is modifying the position of the extruder laying the bead in this video. I was thinking about some sort of gantry that would span the wheel head and allow the extruder to move its position in and out along the radius to offer even more control. At any rate, this is a beautiful machine and it’s exciting to see people kicking around ideas that provide alternative means of accomplishing additive manufacturing.
