7 Reasons Why the 3DP

7 Reasons Why the 3DP Workbench is the Most Convenient Large Format 3D Printer Ever

“If there’s one thing that universally attracts consumers, it is convenience.”

Designed with consumers in mind, 3D Platform’s flagship 3D printer, the 3DP Workbench is an industrial strength, large format 3D printer that is easy to own and operate.

Here are the top 7 reasons why the 3DP Workbench is the most convenient large format 3D printer ever.

  1. First, it Folds!

The 3DP Workbench features a unique gantry system that can be folded sideways. This allows users to easily fold down the large print bed, in order to move the printer through office doors, hallways, and even the narrow 30-inch European standard doors. When folded sideways, the 3DP Workbench’s bed and gantry stands 18” wide x 56” long, and the workbench base measures 22” wide x 78” long.


  1. It Can be Carried by Two

As big and industrial-strength as it is, the 3DP Workbench’s gantry system and the print bed can be easily carried by two people. Instead of disassembling the printer, the conveniently designed 3DP Workbench makes moving the large format 3D printer from daunting to doable. The gantry system and print bed together weight about 200 lbs, with the workbench trolley base, the entire 3DP Workbench weights around 500 lbs. Workbench-Accessibility

  1. It is Easy to Assemble and Calibrate

Every 3DP Workbench is strictly aligned and squared on a certified industrial granite surface. Besides the standard easy 3-step calibration no additional calibration or assembly process is required. 3D Platform—Robust 3D Printers

  1. It is a Perfect Fit for an Engineer’s Office

You do not have to own a large factory floor in order to have a large format 3D printer. The 3DP Workbench is designed to integrate seamlessly into any office setting. Not only the folding gantry system and workbench trolley allow you to conveniently locate the printer where you want, but the SurePrint Servo motors keep the noise low so that everyone can work comfortably near an operating printer. Simply put, having a 3DP Workbench conveniently located in the office is an engineer’s dream come true. 3DP-In-the-Office


  1. It is an Open Platform Designed for Easy Access

The 3DP Workbench is ergonomically designed for easy access, making it possible to add non-printed elements into a 3D printed part during the 3D printing process. Adding non-printed inserts is a key advantage for FFF printing process, as it is not practical with other additive manufacturing processes.

  1. You Can Store All the Tools and Filament in One Place

The 3DP Workbench print bed is secured on an industrial-strength, heavy-duty rolling workbench that comes with 12 drawers and cabinets, providing all the space you need to store your tools and filament in one convenient location. Workbench_drawer

  1. It Provides You with Freedom and Flexibility

Designed with the Open Market Advantage in mind, the 3DP Workbench gives customers the ability to choose from a broad range of 3D printing materials created for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). This can include, but is not limited to: PLA, ABS, PVA, PETG, HIPS, Nylon, NinjaFlex, and more. Open market material advantages
