Began this submit on the 15th of October about complete open-source 3D printers, however after some information about LulzBot, determined to only make it about Prusa.
The Street to 100,000 Authentic Prusa 3D printers (video). That was June of 2019.
Prusa’s Manufacturing Capability Is Unbelievable – Fabbaloo, November 2018.
…we have been informed they have been producing an unimaginable three,000 items per thirty days. At the moment the quantity was far bigger than every other producer we have been conscious of. To place this in perspective, MakerBot’s first 3D printer, the venerable CupCake, seemingly offered fewer than 2,000 items in complete. Prusa now made that many machines in solely a few weeks.
We have been informed Prusa now produces about 450 items per day.
In the event that they’re working a seven-day-a-week operation, that is equal to three,150 items per week, 13,500 items per thirty days, or a staggering 164,250 items per 12 months.
And from Forbes 30 beneath 30 European Know-how Checklist –
Within the final 5 years, Josef Prusa has grown his eponymous firm from a bootstrapped enterprise to one of many largest 3D printer corporations on the earth. With Conan O’Brien and Wil Wheaton as followers, Prusa has shipped tens of 1000’s of printers to over 130 international locations. In 2017, the corporate expects to do over €33M in income and Forbes Czech Republic estimated its valuation to be €236 million in 2016. Not solely are his 3D printers one of many best-sellers around the globe, they’re additionally “self-replicating”. Inside what Prusa calls “The Farm”, greater than 300 printers are busy printing components to assemble new printers.
From the Prusa3d about web page –
Now, there are greater than 300 folks working in Prusa Analysis and we ship over 6000 printers worldwide straight from our HQ in Prague each month! We’ve got change into the no.1 quickest rising tech firm in Central Europe (Deloitte 2018) with the expansion price of 17,118 % during the last 4 years!
In a Could 31, 2019 submit Prusa reported transport 20,000 packages in a single month. And in June of 2019 Prusa reported they’ve shipped over 130,000 printers.
So the quantity might be at the very least as much as 150,000 to 180,000 printers right now October 2019 AND a brand new printer was launched final week.
We are going to e-mail a hyperlink to this text to Prusa and see if we are able to get an official quantity throughout open-source month.
