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...
