  1. This is SO Cool! This would be fun to show at my club I do at school!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. OK, very impressive in a ballpoint but I’m assuming everyone else is thinking inkjet too?

  3. Looks like the Reprap just got a new head!
    Materials engineering represent.

  4. Nice! The lab equipment puts it out of reach for the rapidly proliferating makerus onabudgeta, which is known more commonly as a Frugal Maker.

  5. @ransomhall: Agreed, but if someone took on the makerus penlabus mantle, I’d expect to see a proliferation of makerus buyacouplea.

  6. I’m throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening…
