Lego is a toy. So the machine MUST be slow. If you speed it up, you will find that the material cannot cope with the reaction forces. It will literally break apart. Clunky... Try building something which is NOT clunky with rectangular blocks...

It might be, he copied it from a bok or whatever. Still, it's the first one I saw and it is impressive. The biggest thing I ever made was a conveyor belt that selected yellow and blue bricks from a, stream. This printer project is much more fun and educative.

It's not just bricks, it also has pins and beams that can hold things together.

I like that Lego printer - very clever. The same guy produced the Lego rave video which I found very funny - although not inventively clever like the printer. I too was brought up on Lego and remember it well.
