That is nice. I could imagina this used for making emergency chalets, containers, caravans and other mobile homes. Lots of great application possibilities.

 

How is water-tightness? (Important for boats and houses) I would like to see the boat in the water in real use.

 

And how layer-bonding and strength, especially impactstrength? And resistance to sagging/deformation when the model is placed on uneven grounds?

 

And how is the "filament" melted? Or do you use pellets, or liquids?

 

I think a system with fast-curing composites with integrated mixing tip might also work: then the heat-problem would be solved, since it cures chemically. Similar to the dental mixing tips below (this is silicone, but they also exist for epoxies in other fields).
