Futuristic 3D Printer Could Be the End of Molds, Warehouses


Researchers from Northwestern University have created a new 3D printer that could be the “future of manufacturing.”


The HARP (High-Area Rapid Printing) can print objects the size of an adult human in a matter of hours. Typically, large format printers sacrifice speed and resolution for size. Just look at one of the first 3D printed cars. They called it “the Strati” for a reason. HARP promises to make no such compromises.


The prototype printer is 13 feet tall and has a 2.5 square-foot print bed. It can print about 1.5 feet in an hour. So, if we’re printing adult humans, my replica would take about six hours. The HARP […]
