While 3D printing has exploded on the scene with ready-made prototypes and spare parts, many have insisted the technology is suited for manufacturing. 3D printing company, Stratasys, has taken a step into low-volume manufacturing and mass customization with its Continuous Build 3D Demonstrator. The tool uses additive manufacturing technology for product production.
The new platform is composed of a modular unit with multiple 3D print cells working simultaneously. The Demonstrator is driven by a central, cloud-based architecture that is designed to produce parts in a continuous stream with only minor operator intervention, automatically ejecting completed parts and commencing new ones.
