A new 3D printer, developed by Radiant Fabrication aims to solve both of these problems. It can print up to eight times as fast as a traditional 3D printer and comes complete with a built-in scanner for easier 3D modeling. It's called the Lionhead and it's funding on Kickstarter right now.
The Lionhead owes its speed to its unique multi-head design. There are four and eight-head models available and each can print from all of its heads at the same time. These print heads do not move independently of one another, which is key to sustaining a quality print. The fixed distance between the print heads allows for just-printed filament to dry before a new layer is built upon it. Each head is also capable of printing in its own color if that suits your fancy.
