Try this on a Cartesian printer... :-P

While we were at the 3D Printer World Expo in Seattle, we had the pleasure of meeting Stefanie Mueller, a PhD student from Berlin, Germany.  She showed us a video on her cell phone that completely blew us away.

Now that the video is public (and the paper is submitted), we are excited to share this with you:

WirePrint is a low-fi fabrication technique that prints 3D models as wireframe previews. By extruding filament directly into 3D space instead of printing layer-wise, we achieve a speed-up of up to 10x compared to traditional 3D printing.

It's taken over two years of hard work, with lots of ups and downs, to build our company, recover from our manufacturing issues, move production overseas to a competent supplier, and finally ready the OpenBeam Kossel Pro for launch.  But seeing cool projects like this, and knowing that you've played a small part in building something very cool, makes it all worth while.
