Fast 3D Printing

High Speed 3D Printing (+Video)

Fabbaloo | December 10, 2015

The IRA3D Poetry Infinity is one of the few machines that can 3D print at seemingly impossible speeds. The folks at IRA3D included a number of design features enabling the high speed, such as improved mechanical components and faster processing. They say their machine can hit print speeds of up to 400mm/second. 
This is vastly faster than typical desktop 3D printers that are most often running at less than 100mm/second. The MakerBot Replicator, for example, has a default speed of 90mm/second (although we tend to run ours at 100mm/second without incident), and the Ultimaker series recommends a default print speed of 60mm/second. Some earlier 3D printers run at even slower speeds: we have an older model at the Lab that runs at 30mm/second. This is incredibly slow to produce almost any object.
