VOTW: This Homemade Printer Kicks Ass

There's very little information available about this printer from YouTube user horseattack, other than it's completely homemade (i.e. not from a kit) and uses felt tip pens to ink out each line.

Full YouTube description:"Lego felt tip 110" printer connected to an Apple Mac. This is not a kit you can buy and does not use mindstorms. I designed/built/coded it all from scratch including analog motor electronics, sensors and printer driver, the USB interface uses a "wiring" board."

My favorite part of this 90-second video is the little LEGO men 'operating' the printer. That or the little LEGO man on the pony, because ponies are a necessary component for any LEGO printer.

Hat tip for this one goes to my dear dad [he's awesome!--Ed.].

    Better than some of those kamikaze printers these days, not ban for a Mac boy/grill.

    Pretty cool printer. I'm more fond of the home-made 3d printers personally, such as RepRap. Cool nonetheless :)
