+ description "All RepRap extruders to date have a similar underlying construction, built around a resistively heated metal melt chamber with an external temperature sensor. UBC Rapid is pursuing a different approach, using induction heating to melt plastic inside a glass nozzle. Although design is more difficult, this approach is expected to offer improved performance, and once designed, may be easier to manufacture."
