QuadStrap low cost 3d printer with large volume and no 3d printed parts

QuadStrap is machine developed by Dr. Shauki Bagdadi, it is designed to produce other printers and therefore has no 3d printed plastic parts. It is ultra low cost with price at some 300 euro for 1 cube meter of print volume. That is very affordable!
It moves with transmission by mason cord or packing tape which further lowers the cost.
