Stephanie Sharp of 3DQue on Automated Manufacturing With FDM Clusters

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting topic. I think that a cluster of smaller, cheaper FDM printers is much more efficient and cost effective than fewer larger printers. Also, they are more fault tolerant. If a print fails, you only need to reprint a small part, not a larger more expensive part. Essentially this is the concept behind server clusters or RAID hard drive arrays. Use many smaller cheaper units to do the work of more expensive ones.
