Video: RepRap 3D Printer with Wire Embedding Capability

My teammate, Jacob, made a nice video about our Wire-Embedding 3D Printer project as a requirement for our university project course. Check it out! =D Thanks Jacob!

Also, the final report of this project is up in the ReprapWiki now:

Just a quick update. We're busy writing our final report, which is due this Tuesday. But here's the results of our best wire print so far! The spiral is 30 mm in diameter. The wire bonds in two places (the inside and outside) and is supported along the way by a plastic guide. The whole print was done robotically using G-code. We've already demonstrated that we can print wires in straight lines, and now it's clear that we can print curves too!

That's all for now!
