Thanks to the omnidirectional wheels, the OmniPrinter can move in any direction at any moment, retaining the capabilities and functionality of a conventional Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printer.

The OmniDidact isn’t perfect however, it comes with some limitations that vary with the desired object to be printed, although most of these limitations are logistical in nature, they can be further analyzed in the following segments:

 

 

These size limits are due to the pathing that the OmniDidact will have to take in order to build this object, and mechanical collisions would prevent a larger solid circle to be printed at once.

Please note that this particular limitation can be rendered negligible as the print area can be further expanded by 12” every pass, as shown in the next segments.
