We are excited to announce a new accessory for the Massive Dimension line-up, the MD Adaptor nozzle! Keeping with our mission statement of expanding what is possible with our extruders, we’ve engineered a solution for users who want the precision and resolution of a small nozzle diameter such as you would find on a standard filament-driven print head, but want to couple those qualities to a pellet-driven machine with a more expansive build envelope.  Previously the smallest stock size nozzle diameter for the MDPH2 and MDPE10 was 1.5mm, with larger size diameters easily achievable by simply boring out the orifice...

Here at the MD lab, we find ourselves constantly returning to the question of how to best apply our technology in a meaningful way. Without delving too deeply into the philosophical quagmire of how to define “meaningful”, you could say we are focused on the “so what?” that is proposed by possessing the capability for large format printing. We have the technology, now what can we make with it? In the lab we are constantly using our printers to rapid prototype new designs for products, and sometimes the 3D printed parts remain in the final design, while other times they...

Experiments, Massive Dimension, MDPH2, Pellet Head Extruder -

Advances in materials science and polymer innovations are an increasingly powerful catalyst for change in the additive manufacturing industry at this time. As 3D printing gains popularity in the industrial sector as a major means of production, a broad range of applications drives a proliferation of specialized plastics uniquely suited to various purposes. In turn, the machines performing the extrusions must be engineered to possess the versatility needed to create optimum flow rates for these different materials. Hobbyists and DIYers are also often enthusiastic about having access to a multitude of printing materials and correspondingly look for a machine that...

At Massive Dimension, we strive to build the best machines we are capable of designing. Ongoing support for our extruder line is of paramount importance to our company ethos of dependability, and we want to make sure that our customers can grow and progress their printing capabilities concurrent to the expansion of our product offerings.  Inevitably, exhaustive research and informed innovation leads to design evolution. Though at its inception the MDPH2 was the best pellet-driven extruder we could bring to market, we have learned a great deal in the two years since, working with our machine and also with our...

MDPH2 vs. MDPE10  The MDPE10 is the latest Massive Dimension product to launch, a brand new particle extruder meant to expand the possibilities for users exploring the realm of large format printing. More products means more options- but options can be paralyzing if you don’t know how to choose. Not to worry! We are here to help with a side-by-side comparison between the two machines that can assist your selection and make sure you get the extruder that will be the best fit for your production needs. Both of these machines are designed towards a similar purpose, in fact the...
