3D Printer World Records Attempts: Aleph Objects and LeTourneau University #3DThursday #3DPrinting
In a friendly competitive spirit, we are seeing companies and colleges starting to compete for various Guinness Book of World Records’s categories for “most simultaneously running 3D printers.” Check out the impressive video above from Aleph Objects with their LULZBOT TAZ printers counting off as well as a photo of the students at LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas below who have already filed their World Record claim.
These competitions are fun if anything for the way they are indicating the new “herding” and “farming” behaviors around desktop 3D printing that would be too costly for a similar quantity of industrial machines.
At Aleph Objects, Inc, we believe we hold the world record for most 3D printers running simultaneously. On April 3rd, 2014 we recorded 109 LulzBot 3D printers running simultaneously. If you know anyone who has done more, let us know!
We will be contacting the Guinness World Records to submit our claim for the record.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
