Lostboyslab ordered 80 new extrusion 3D printers from Prusa Research. The new printers will be joining the current fleet of 140 printers in the 3D print farm Alpha Zero of Lostboyslab, located on the south coast of Sweden.
“The FDM 3D printers from Prusa research have just been proven over and over again that they are the most reliable machines and with the open material system, very suitable for additive manufacturing with all recycled and sustainable material we develop together with our partners,” said Stefan Larsson, Founder and CEO of Lostboyslab.
Lostboyslab sees increasing demand for its 3D printing services especially with recycled and bio-derived materials and is now adding more manufacturing capability to its current fleet of 3D printers. The new investment will almost double the capacity for FFF printing The new 3D printers are both the Original Prusa i3 MK3S+ and the upcoming Original Prusa XL.
With more than 200 printers in one single location, the 3D print farm Lostboyslab Alpha Zero is today one of the largest additive manufacturing sites in Europe. “Our printers are gaining ground in industrial applications and we are happy that with their quality and reliability they will easily succeed in the competition of incomparably more expensive printers.” Josef Prusa, Founder and CEO of Prusa Research.
The Lostboyslab design studio revolves around disruption and Imagineering, constantly pushing the limits of technology both in fabrication and materials. On a mission to find new ways using new fabrication opportunities and new materials, in combination with outside-of-the-box thinking, the team looks for the best process with software, platforms, 3D modeling and printing technology. The company’s functional approach, is targeted at manufacturing in the fastest and smartest way, combining parametric design, artificial intelligence, generative design and millions of simulations so that all digital designs and are totally optimized for additive manufacturing.
