3D printer manufacturer Titan Robotics has introduced the Cronus, a multi-gantry FFF 3D printer that can be fitted with multiple tool heads. The Cronus uses multi-head 3D printing technology from Autodesk and Netfabb, and is available in both open and closed versions.
Despite the growing importance of additive-centric events like formnext, RAPID, and various Maker Faires, many still see the monstrously large and all-encompassing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as the number one place for 3D printing companies to show off their latest wares. During this year’s event, which took place last week in the usual location of Las Vegas, large-scale 3D printer manufacturer Titan Robotics brought an impressive new machine to the table: the Cronus. While certainly not the only large 3D printer extruding its stuff at the Nevada showpiece, the Cronus—with its multiple gantries and print heads—was easily one of the most eye-catching.
“At Titan Robotics, we know what it takes to make a truly industrial large-format 3D printer,” Titan Robotics Founder and CEO Clay Guillory said ahead of the Cronus’s public release next month. “This collaborative control technology is going to change everything we know about 3D printing and CNC manufacturing.”
