In 12 colors!!! Unfortunately, at present it's only available in 3mm :(

I am supremely impressed with those shoes - I wonder how long the filament lasts under those stresses

Unfortunately I'd need a much bigger printer than an Up for my feet...

Same ... but I have a much bigger printer. I could technically print 1200x600x300mm ... surely your feet would fit on that :P
At the moment I am thankful it's only 3mm and that I've given away all my 3mm extruders .... because I am already on noodles!

That's quite the impressive size of print bed Roller!
Did you strap an extrusion head to a CNC router?

Indeed, it's an option I designed into my CNC and belt driven so it can actually print at a reasonable speed (100mm/s). The acceleration is a bit woeful though so realistically wouldnt be much faster than the Up except on massive linear prints. My real, non Up printers are 200x200x200 and 300x200x200mm in a similar design to Mendel90 though a little older but capable of 250+mm/s.
