Gantri, a California-based light manufacturer, has unveiled its own 3D printer named Dancer. Using a patent-pending process based on an FDM multi-gantry system, the Dancer is designed for the production of the company’s light fittings. It leverages a total of four gantries alongside a rotating circular build plate. Manufactured at the company’s San Leandro facility, the Dancer 3D printer is for internal manufacturing only, and will not be commercially available.

Speaking with Gantri CTO Christianna Taylor, 3D Printing Industry finds out more about the company and its new Dancer 3D printer. “Gantri’s mission is to empower designers to create by using advanced technologies,” said Taylor.

San - Francisco - Gantri - Platform - Designers

Founded in San Francisco, Gantri provides a platform for designers to realize their ideas using its proprietary 3D printing process, and deliver these designs direct-to-consumer. According to Taylor, “The benefits of our process are that it’s a digital manufacturing process that opens up our design platform to designers who wouldn’t otherwise have an option to create and sell a product directly to consumers.”

Using 3D printing, Gantri promises to provide an efficient and sustainable alternative that overcomes the cost and time for designers launching a new product in today’s industrial manufacturing model. Previously, the company was using the Ultimaker 2+ Extended to manufacture lights. However, as the company expanded, it needed to improve its manufacturing capabilities. “We looked at existing 3D printing products from HP and others but none of those met our unique needs at Gantri,” explains Taylor. Instead of adopting an industrial system like one from the HP Multi Jet Fusion range, which would be expensive, the company decided to...
