    High volume printing

    I want to print 500-1000 small duplicate parts for a prototype I am working on. What options are out there to print in somewhat "high volume" besides the method of printing multiple parts on one build plate? Has anyone else encountered this issue before? Thanks for the comments.

    Sure. Print four, or five, or ten at a time with a Hyrel.



    Our Hydra 640 has a 600x400 build plate, and with two yokes, you can have ten heads printing in parallel (nozzles are 35mm apart).

    What size are your parts?

    You can also buy a small desktop injection moulding unit that can use 3d printed moulds.
    Also theres a printer around with a conveyor belt that prints continuously till the batch is done.

    Can you tell me more about the conveyor belt idea?
