Giant multi-headed 3D printer can create massive objects in a single pass

Giant multi-headed 3D printer can create massive objects in a single pass

, represents a new approach to 3D printing. It breaks up large designs into multiple sets of instructions that can then be sent to an array of multiple printheads simultaneously. Not only does this allow much larger objects to be printed more easily, it also dramatically speeds up the printing process on smaller objects. The printheads can even be swapped out for a variety of other tools, for example, a robot hand that repositions parts of the object when necessary, or a milling head that removes support structures from the final object.
