Thanks for asking. The 3D printer we used is a customized D-bot printer (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1001065) modified with two direct-drive auto-lifting nozzles (http://www.dglass3d.com/products/autolift-hot-ends/). The auto-lifting mechanism, which retracts the nozzle when materials are not being extruded, is important to avoid any cross-contamination between the conductive and non-conductive filaments. If you need any help with building a D-bot, please feel free to contact us. For commercial dual extrusion 3D printers, you may look into BCN3D type printer which has two independent nozzles (http://www.matterhackers.com/store/printer-kits/bcn3d-sigma-3d-printer).
Hey, Muhammad! Thank you for letting us know the Electrifi filament is working for you. Hope it will work well for your project as well.
You can download the svg files and convert them to pdf with, for example, this website: http://www.zamzar.com/
Nice! Thanks for sharing.

Not sure I understand your question, but 3D printing this WS2812 LED matrix costs about half of what it would cost to buy a WS2812 matrix.

Definitely, we will be at the World Maker Faire in NYC in October, come check us out.
Not exactly, probably somewhere in the 3D printing section. I just made an account on twitter (https://twitter.com/multi3d) so if you want to follow we can tweet out our exact location once we get there. Usually you don't know where you'll be until you get there.
Thanks! I agree we should have the wires go through the foam board, to do that we could have just poked some holes through with tweezers, didn't think of it at the time.

That's actually a really great idea! I could rig this up with a solar panel and timer so it charges during the day, and lights up at night like those patio path lights. Would be great to hide under a Boston bridge.
Awesome! That looks great, thank you for sharing!
beautiful, very nice work!
