Robot-Operated 3D Printer Farm by Voodoo Manufacturing

3D Printing has been used for rapid prototyping but is slowly finding its way into mass manufacturing through different methods.  One way is through 3D Printer Farms with multiple printers linked together to produce numerous parts at one time.  Although, this process still requires someone to switch out or clean the print bed when printing was done.

A Brooklyn-based company named Voodoo Manufacturing recently developed a fully functional robot-operated 3D printer cluster which is said to reduce costs by 90% over the next five years.  Called Project Skywalker, this new technic utilizing a robotic arm will allow them to automate labor intensive processes, such as plate harvesting.
