Cool and inventive concept, and nice achievement, especially for a student job. It must have been a mathematical nightmare, with all those 3D-rotations.

But I still don't see how this concept is going to work for an upside-down U-shape, a table, or similar bridges, where you would need a 90° upwards rotation. Or for small models, where the head would have problems reaching into the details, while the table is rotating.

    I would add that once a part gets beyond a certain size, you would run into adhesion problems as well, torque, etc.

    But, I am a fan of out of the ordinary thinking. Bold concepts can be modified towards better practicality.
