As its name suggests, large format 3D printing provides the biggest industrial printer bed dimensions available on the market. Sporting a maximum part volume of 1000 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm, this economical alternative to traditional machining of large parts is highly effective for small-to-medium-sized production runs. Large format 3D printing accommodates intricate geometric designs, which are normally impossible to machine in a single piece. This greatly reduces waste and eliminates the need for assembly.
At RapidMade, our large format 3D printing services offer a myriad of benefits for the creation of molds and tooling. For example, we’re able to decrease tooling costs and lead-times relative to traditional manufacturing technologies. Additionally, the process enables us to eliminate a multitude of restrictions that accompany conventional design – all while producing highly durable parts that are just as functional as their traditional counterparts.
3D printed plastics are revered for their quick turn-around times, durability, and inexpensive price point. For more information regarding our 3D printing services, check out our 5-Minute Buyer’s Guide or our HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Services.
