Yes it works, yes you can do it yourself by cutting the material.

The only thing I find really interesting is the piece of software behind it, that apparently calculates and designs a wipe tower so you can have actual dual color in a print in the same layer.

Still a waste of filament though

and there's also a smaller version of the builder, saw it at Makerpoint (local store in Arnhem NL, if I remember I think the print quality was nice and I liked the transition of colors ... but the printhead is big and heavy so I would think not a machine for high speeds.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
