Quite interesting way to make a 3D printer. They claimed 10x faster than usual FFF 3D printer.

What do you think?

@kamil1 I think what's impressive, is they have identified limitations and designed them out with some clever thinking.

Using a laser to boost the temperature, melt the filament is pretty damn neat. Yep, rigid printer supports faster moves, and the reactions from more powerful filament feeds. Lessons for everyone here. :)

Great to see, and anybody could apply this to a new machine build. 8)
