Stratasys 3D Continuous Build Demonstrator – Manufacturing on demand

| August 4, 2017

Stratasys recently released a video showing it’s version of manufacturing on demand.  It’s an interesting concept utilizing a continuous build sheet that advances and is cut off to leave a new build area behind.  The parts collected in a bin attached to the 3D printer.  I haven’t personally seen a “in the wild” 3D printed production part but I would like to understand where this on demand solution fits other than a university or rapid prototyping contract service.  This could drive the price down on getting your next widget converted from a CAD model to a physical part or assembly.  I’ve priced that service before and it was spendy.  Click the pictures and links for more information.
