Large 3D Printer Developed by 3D Platform
Why has 3D Platform developed such a large 3D printer?
Engineers, driven by the need to create real world prototypes and parts that ordinary desktop 3D printers could not handle, lead to creating their own large 3D printer.
3DP Representative Mark Huebner discusses large format 3D printing with 3DP engineer Joe Binka. Mark is quick to acknowledge that Joe and his team are the development pros behind this idea. Alongside them is the 3D Platform’s large 3D printer.
Mark: This is a large 3D printer—I mean we are talking about one meter by one meter by a half meter build area. What drove you guys to go large format?
Joe: At the time, a lot of our 3D printers were very small footprints, and most of the products and parts that we wanted to print just simply would not fit on the printer. So, we decided to come up with a large 3D printer that could not only do one-meter by one-meter print, but also run production parts. Initially we had a customer that came to us with a small production run involving a prototype. The print run was successful in that we were able to print it all on one print bed.
