Making PCB vias with conductive ink

Here’s an alternative method for making PCB vias using conductive ink from Diyouware:

We developed an alternative method for making PCB vias through-hole using our robot.
As you probably know the traditional DIY method consists in threading a wire through the holes and then soldering it and then cutting it off. For example, if we have 100 vias in our PCB, we have to insert the thin wire on each hole, cut it and solder it 200 times. This is time-consuming, but also tedious, absurd, prone to failures and produces a melancholic state of mind.:-)
So we decide to innovate in this area developing a new method which consists in drilling blind vias instead of holes and filling them with conductive ink.
