Lum Continuous Build Belt Platform 3D Printer

Andreas Bastian developed this very interesting 3d printer with continuous build belt platform. Since it is a movable belt you could, in theory, print continuous or infinitely big objects. Yes, it is a DIY project and it is in development so the builds are rough but the concept is innovative.
The name "Lum" is a version of  the word "loom" as the developer is known for his work in textile-like 3d printed structures.

Here is Lum printing its own print bed! First part of a print platform belt is made on different 3d printer and then finished on Lum.
