That last design is from me and was the first 3d design I made for printers and is on Thingiverse. It is called Knot Thing and was done in extremely HI-RES.

Looks like a metal-version of the PrintrBot to me.

The print quality looks terrible. Uses mostly open-source designs, has no real innovation and very limiting build volume. I fail to see the value in this.
