Ultimaker produces desktop Fused Deposit Modelling (FDM) 3D printers. One downfall of the FDM technology is that it is relatively slow in producing solid parts, compared to other rapid prototyping techniques. Larger volumes increase the printing time exponentially. This project started off with a unique idea to replace the internal volume with a...
