New 3D Printer

I have seen this printer various places and it has been mentioned on the forum.  It is from  They are calling it the Elserbot.  It was not clear from the website or other blogs if this was an open source project, so I emailed Martijn Elserman.  He responded.

Hello Bart,

The design will be open source when we have finished the complete package hardware, electronics and software.
We will offer DIY kits.

Best regards,

It looks like an interesting design.  The two obvious thing that jump out are the large build area and the use of the Bowden Cable style extruder.  The Bowden cable idea offers some benefits like reducing the size and weight of the print head and removing vibration.   Here are other versions of the Bowden cable.’s_Bowden_Extruder

There are a few videos of it doing pen plots after the jump.
