Creality has teamed up with Naomi Wu (aka SexyCyborg) to create the 3DPrintMill CR-30. By using a heated belt rather than a traditional build-plate, users can theoretically print infinitely in the Z-axis. The new printer, which is currently part of an ongoing campaign on Kickstarter, can also batch print models for up to 200 hours unattended.
