We have decided to make a slight name change to our direct mount extruders for FPF printing. Currently, we have been using MDPH, the abbreviation for Massive Dimension Pellet Head. The question came up as to what is a Pellet Head? We were not sure how the name conveyed the meaning of what the product does. When naming a product it is important to name such a product in a way that conveys to customers what the product does. The current name we use does not convey what the MDPH unit does. Therefore we are going to change the MDPH...

Object Size Large format 3D printing is very similar to the standard 3D printing. The main difference is the size and scale of the objects being printed. Standard 3D printing, such as on a Makerbot, Printrbot, or other FDM printers, only have about 12in x 12in x 12in build volume. With large format 3D printing the build area is measured in much larger units such as feet or meters. Check out this link for the a list of the largest printers. It is hard to draw a line and say where standard FDM printing stops and large format starts. Large...

Newly released pellet head extruder. The MDPH2 from Massive Dimension is a direct print pellet head extruder. It is designed specifically for large format 3D Printing where higher output is needed. Higher output means shorter print times, critical when prints are of larger scale. By utilizing direct particle feeding this pellet head can use more materials, materials that cannot be converted into filament during the conventional extrusion process. These pellet heads can be mounted on any movement system, we have installed pellet heads on industrial robotic arms and on XYZ systems. Pellet heads have been used to print the first...
