Submission + - Are there any Open Source 2D printers?

Given the abundance of open-source 3D printers, I thought that an open source 2D printer would have been in production by now but Google didn't turn up anything. Do any Slashdot readers know of any projects I missed? Why haven't there been any open source 2D printers?"

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
