In an effort to share more of the day-to-day activities of the MD lab with our friends and followers in the 3D printing community, we’ve set up a camera feed on our MDPH2 extruder to allow us to live stream prints through our Twitch channel! The printer, nicknamed “Potter”, is a customized SCARA movement system and fabricated aluminum print bed- the extruder also has our just-released MDMCU pneumatic auto-feeding pellet delivery system mounted on it, for those curious to see it in action.  Expect to see us go live several times a week - there may be specifically scheduled events...

We are excited to announce the latest addition to the MD lineup of extruder accessories: the Material Conveyance Unit! It’s okay, you can call it the MCU for short, all of us at the lab do too. The MCU was born from the need to keep our large format printers supplied with pellets through the course of long prints. Unlike a conventional filament-driven desktop printer that could run even an overnight print on a single 1 kg spool, these printers could require 5 kg, 10 kg, or an even greater supply of pellets to successfully complete a twelve-hour print. Such...

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...

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...
