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.
From Aleph Objects:
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.
