A mobile 3D printing factory inside a 20' container
We wanted to re-use shipping containers, they are great for keeping equipment safe, easy to ship over oceans, structurally sound to build inside and it's a nice mix of blade runner and Mad Max.
FDM 3D printers inside
The MMU is equipped with 18 FDM 3D printers that work in parallell. They can work 24/7 and both off grid and connected to the grid. They consumer very little energy once they are running and with 18 printers we can produce locally needed parts fast.
Uses recycled materials
The MMU is based on using recycled materials like rPLA and rPETG. It can also recycle local waste into material for injection moulding or 3D printing. It will be equipped with shredders, injection moulds and 3D material making machines.
Connected to whatt.io
Connected to the mobile internet and the whatt.io parts database are available to all MMU's, this allows for external 3D designers and engineers to remotely build 3D designs.
