Printrbelt Can 3D Print Multiple Objects onto a Moving Platform

(TechCrunch)  The Printrbelt is a new 3D printer that prints onto a moving platform. As the object is completed, it moves down the belt slightly along the Z axis and then pops the object off the belt when it is done. The printer prints at a surprising angle and instead of creating a top-down object it creates angled cross sections of the object as it spools down the belt.
The Printrbelt team is building the printers now and is ready to ship for $1,699 as soon as they get pre-orders. This sub-$2,000 printer can print multiple objects or, if you’re careful, one big object for about the price of a good, finite-X 3D printer
