3D printer using dot matrix. Had plans back in the 80s. Surprised they used x-y plotter for them.. Want one.

I… so.. want… a 3D printer… drooling since the first articles came out.
Back in dot matrix days I drew up plans for a 3D printer.

The idea was, the dots would use a much thicker ink and the platen would back up as it passed over the same spot over and over again in increments the size of the dot.

Waited a long time for someone to actually make something – didn’t expect them to use an X-Y PLOTTER for the base design but it makes sense over a roller.

Just too lazy to build, too cheap to buy.
