3D printer built to manufacture consumer goods at scale
Direct-to-consumer 3D printing startup Gantri (San Francisco, CA) has unveiled what it says is the world's first commercial multi-gantry cylindrical 3D printer specifically designed for manufacturing consumer goods at scale.
  • additional input from the user.
  • Fleet-management - Dancer is wireless-enabled and connects directly to Gantri's online order system.
  • Made using 3D printing - Dancer is made and assembled by Gantri in California. 60% of all Dancer parts are 3D printed.

"Dancer is an amazing innovation," says Taylor. "It combines advanced hardware, software and industrial engineering to make fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing drastically more efficient. In addition, we are investing in advanced robotics and AI to further improve our manufacturing platform from start to finish. This will allow us to diversify materials and categories for our designers and customers."

The company says it will start migrating its entire printer fleet to Dancer at the Gantri Factory in San Leandro, California starting in November. As a result, the company estimates that the average "Made for you" production lead time will decrease from about four weeks currently to two weeks.
