They specifically use the capabilities of cheaper (GBP200-2000) plastic
extrusion printers that are available as or are adapted from Free/Open
Hardware. These work like hot glue guns on arms, rather than the more
expensive ones (GBP5000-100000) which work like inkjet printers that
also go up:

It would be pointless but amusing to simulate the output of the former
using the latter. A kind of 3D printing gentrification of form.
