The California-based 3D printer company Printrbot has introduced its latest offering, the Printrbelt 3D printer.

The Printrbelt 3D printer, which is already available to order through the Printrbot website, is a desktop additive manufacturing system which integrates a moving platform. This distinct feature, along with a novel angled printhead, makes for a 3D printer that can print continuously, as printed parts are automatically moved along the Z-axis on the print belt until they come off at the end.

The 3D printer was developed in partnership with Polar3D, which developed the cloud software for processing prints. Access to this cloud service will be included in the 3D printer purchase. (Printrbot has explicitly not guaranteed compatibility with other third-party software or operating systems.)
