This string-based 3D printer is a distant cousin to the Maslow CNC: Marionette 3D Printer Replaces Linear Rails With String | Hackaday
A moment after I had this thought, I realized that the folks at Hackaday actually mentioned the Maslow in their article!
I saw that too! It was a really nice shout out! I’m not 100% sure that they know that there is a new version of Maslow I was going to reach out to them as part of the Kickstarter, but then we hit the goal so fast that I didn’t end up contacting any press.
