New Lab innovators print their way to faster iterations and design freedom

October 10, 2018

Newlab uniquely supports entrepreneurs working in advanced technology. Connecting those in robotics, AI, connected devices, nanotechnology, urban tech and similar fields to resources like prototyping labs, advanced tools, and a community of their peers.

“For the members who might be interested in 3D printing, and in integrating 3D printing into their workflow, the largest barrier was that they either assumed that 3D printing could do anything, or that it couldn’t do the thing they needed it to,” says Alexander Susse, New Lab’s Director of Additive Manufacturing.

Their 3D printing lab features twelve Ultimaker 3D printers for community use. These printers are readily available day or night so they are always available for innovation. 3D Printers are a central part of the design iteration process for New Lab companies and the introduction of Ultimaker was a boost to their overall fabrication capacity and capability.

“With our Ultimakers,” Marcel says, “we can finally use 3D printers for experimentation on the fly. The original aim of iterating and rapid prototyping is, at the end of the day, to prototype – not to produce costly artifacts at each stage. When I print using SLS or high-end FFF solutions, I feel the parts that cost so much to produce are precious – but the only requirement for the printed parts is that they are something my team and I can look at for five minutes and then throw away. We’d rather buy three more Ultimakers than one $9k entry-level industrial-grade machine.” Marcel believes that professional desktop 3D printers match and address his team’s actual prototyping needs.
