Think of all the plastic they would have saved if they didn't print it at all.....

Are we allowed to post that pic here now?
I've seen it posted lately, but I've had it deleted by mods years back.

Cool.

That is a pretty cool concept, minimizing the use of supports is often pretty annoying to deal with for complex minis.  The added complexity of this system might be equally annoying though.  Thinking of how to ensure each pin's surface will need to get heated, now you've got multiple rounds of first layer adhesion and most importantly making sure none of the filament from a job gone sideways finds itself within the platforms' under areas.

I agree with you, several things are the 3D printing bugaboo- bed leveling, bed heating, and 1st layer adhesion.

This design saves some time and material, but GREATLY complicates the 3 things that are most likely to go wrong in your print.

In addition, it makes your printer MUCH taller, more expensive, and more complex (likely to fail).

I suspect it is FAR more annoying.

Sorry, bed-leveling is enough of a nightmare as it is. And I hadn't even *thought* of the heating issues. You'd need a separate heater for each and every square.

You just need to make sure that you are posting the original:

The should 3D print the platform to 3D print on.  No moving parts in the platform.
