  16. Move excess heat from the stepper motors to create a heated bed Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  17. Take out the connected PC interface by sending designs to the printer wirelessly, and monitoring it on a screen Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  18. Create joints and other printed components with high tolerances and structural rigidity to eliminate the use of the extra wood components Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  19. Reduce heat/noise from motors by eliminating them and using a stepped magnetic track to control axis movement Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  20. Implement snap joints and press fits to eliminate the use of fasteners Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  21. Implement magnetic joints to eliminate fasteners Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  22. Have the printer create the g-code of the model dynamically (layer by layer) to allow for quick adjustments on the fly and removing the use of a third party slicer Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  23. Have the printer use low temp materials to eliminate the use of the hot-end Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  24. Use stainless steel guide rods to prevent rusting instead of using grease Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  25. Use sonic levitation too allow the printer to print on a thin strip of air, removing use of print bed. Jrjarvis (talk) 07:08, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  26. Use of higher resolution stepper motors to print at a higher resolution and with less noise Jrjarvis (talk) 07:13, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  27. Use excess noise and vibration to run a small generator to make extra power to run the printer Jrjarvis (talk) 07:13, 4 December 2018 (PST)
  28. Use E-mag waves in the air from power lines, cell phone towers, radio towers to power the printer, eliminating the wall plug. Jrjarvis (talk) 07:13, 4 December 2018 (PST)
