Print The Eiffel

A post on Objet's blog shows off a totally amazing 3D print of Paris' Eiffel Tower. This 20+ cm version is highly detailed and is made with Objet's clear material. We're particularly impressed with the lack of "stringies" that are so often found on prints from extruded plastic personal 3D printers. 
 
The problem is that within each layer the plastic extruder must "jump" from one pillar to another, and this presents an opportunity for small trails of plastic to develop. While personal 3D printer manufacturers have worked on this problem for some time - and indeed have minimized it - Objet's technology doesn't seem to have the problem, at least on this pathologically-stringy Eiffel Tower model.
