3D Systems Shows Off Its Super-Fast 3D Printing Assembly Line

production line overview

3D Systems has been working with Google on it’s Project Ara modular cellphone. They have been working together to create a 3D printing process to let customers personalize their devices as never before. Check out the video below to learn more about Project Ara.


One of the goals of Project Ara is to have the look of the phone, in addition to the components, be completely custom to the user. To be able to do this means that the parts would have to be 3D printed.

That’s a great goal, but we’re likely talking about tens or hundreds of thousands of customized components. 3D printing is know for short-run, small batch production. To handle Project Ara components, it would have to be scaled up somehow. Enter 3D Systems:


This type of production line will greatly increase the speed of 3D printing. Instead of lost energy and momentum by having the printing head reverse speed, this racetrack-style configuration allows the printing to happen very quickly.

What other objects do you think this process could be applied to?
