BlackBelt, a 3D printer where the length of the pieces will not be a problem

black belt

Today the truth is that there are many limitations when using a 3D printer, one of the aspects that we must take into account more is its speed, resolution, technology used and, especially the dimensions With which it allows us to work since, depending on whether they are larger or not, we will be able to create more or less large objects.

To eliminate, in a way, this limitation the guys from Blackbelt, a new Dutch startup, propose what today is the first 3D printer equipped with a moving belt, which would allow us to create objects of a set width and height but of infinite length so it could well be used to create very long objects or directly the same design repeated as many times as we want.

Blackbelt, a 3D printer with which its creators intend to revolutionize the market.

Basically, as the creators of this design argue, we are talking about a 3D printer that instead of working as we are used to, would be able to work in a way much more similar to how a assembly line with all the advantages that these supposes and also the disadvantages.

At the moment the company is seeking financing through the well-known platform Kickstarter to bring your awesome 3D printer to life. As a detail, tell you that if you are willing to collaborate you can get one per $6.500, a price that may seem excessive or not so much if we take into account that, at the moment, there is nothing that resembles it in the market.
