SandBox 3D printer

Prototype Z-Corp style powder printer by SandBox.  Inkjet wetting of plaster to make parts.  

I think this approach will really take off when Memjet nozzles (video below - warning, turn your volume down) becomes readily available and repurposed for 3D printing..  

In theory, it should be possible to print ~0.1mm resolution at 0.1mm layer height, 12 layers a minute - or roughly 60 mm/hour for a bed full of parts.  (My assumption: 3 seconds to lay down a fresh layer and wet it, 2 seconds to dry.  Repeat.)
