New approach to automatically printing multiple copies on your 3d printer

Simple, yet effective.

We’ve all seen the Makerbot Thing-O-Matic with the automatic conveyor belt system.  We tried it, it didn’t work too well.  Well don’t let that stop Sanjay, he’s been working on (what appears to be) a much better system for doing automatic prints.

The system basically uses the print head as a shovel to push the print off so it can print another one.  He’s been at this awhile, as seen here, here, and here.   It looks like he’s really on to something with this method.
