Stratasys’ New Wall of 3D Printers Marks Important Shift in Scale and Speed

(TechCrunch) Stratasys’ new wall of 3D printers could mark an important shift in scale and speed for those looking increasingly toward the tech as an alternative to more traditional modes like injection molding. Stratasys recently showcased its Continuous Build 3D Demonstrator–a wall of cells representing a key shift toward 3D printing for manufacturing.
The technology brings the promise of continuous manufacturing, all keyed up to a single cloud-based system. The individual cells are capable of working simultaneously on different parts, ejecting their prints when done. If one of the cells screws up a print for any reason, it will be moved to the next cell to complete. Stratasys says the rig can be run with minimal interventions by human operators, and modularity means that new cells can be added to the system at any time.
