in late 2007 Bre became artist in residence in Viennese MuseumsQuartier
on intervention and invitation of artist group monochrom. The project
he choose was to build a RepStrap bot - and because monochrom is engaged
in organizinghttp://www.roboexotica.org (the annual festival for cocktail
robotics -since 1999!) the declared aim was to print shotglasses with the
machine

Don't know about a tradition (although once sipped Club-Mate out of a
printed glass) but this video might have contributed to the saga
