3D Print Speeds to Approach 1800 mm/sec, Thanks to REAL's 3D Printer Boards

My biggest complaint, along with probably the majority of individuals who own a desktop 3D printer, is the lack of speed when it comes to fabricating an object. The typical desktop 3D printer, whether it’s an FDM/FFF or an SLA machine, prints at speeds which are typically in the range of 50-150 mm/sec. This means […]
