From DIY 3d printing history 1 - Silicone 3d printer from 2003 with rotating cylindrical surface






3D printer that deposits silicone layers based on Illustrator drawings to produce printed shapes. It has cylindrical rotating surface as build platform which allows it to print shapes impossible to print on flat surface. It is hard to find further technical information on this machine, so if anybody knows more, let me know.
