    It's Great Isn't It?

    I would so like to have the time to try it out myself....The guy has almost certainly used an old plotter driver on the software side of things...But putting the thing together is the fun part!

    Any Meccano Geniuses Out There?

    The clip's got me wondering....I have a box full of old Meccano stuff, motors wheels etc.

    Anyone got a design idea? Something along the same lines, but with faster page times...Sure would be a novelty item....Install as a network printer, and get my buddies around:)

    Amazingly awesome. I love lego... you can do SO much with it, especially nowadays... I remember when lego technics was the most "advanced" lego, and now you can literally build and program robots and electromechanical devices with it. Fun for adults, and fun and intellectually stimulating for kids as well!

    Awesome!

    Practically speaking, ink will be cheaper than that of today's inkjet printers. :)

    Duh. Even the description says that the printer was made from scratch by the YouTube poster.

    Maybe you need some coffee. ;)

    I think he's implying that there is not enough fine movement in the worker Lego. Just a guess.

    Atta boy, stick by your guns. Buck the tide. March to your own drummer.

    The Printer Was Made From Lego Using

    The parts (many) the guy had to hand.

    He did buy factory produced pens though,,,,Sheesh some people:D

    Perhaps If

    The poster construed a few verbose and interesting post's, instead of rejecting everyone else's contributions, he would perhaps be taken more seriously:eek:
