Print quality

The Makerbot Method can print at 20 microns, 2 printheads with 0.4 mm nozzles. This allows creating highly-detailed smooth models like the one below. Since support structured were printed with water-soluble PVA material, they can be easily removed by leaving the model in the water.

The print heads run on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple.
