The 8 largest 3D printers in the world

CachHayNhat - The future is now about 3D printing technology! 3D printers can be manufactured to work with a wide variety of materials, making their potential applications nearly endless. Today's 3D printers can create everything from plastic figurines and scale models to whole car tires and buildings! As you can imagine, some of these printers have to be quite large to accommodate such impressive prints.

Winsun
Winsun

Winsun 3D printer is the largest 3D printer in the world. The company, known as Winsun in China and Yingchuang Construction Engineering around the world, claims that its 3D printer can print out an entire standard sized house for approximately $4,800 la in a day ! However, there has been a lot of debate and controversy as to whether the technology was developed ethically and some have argued that stolen patents were used to create machines. Winsun 3D printing.

Winsun claims that its printer can capture up to 50% of the ink material used in the printing process from mining and construction waste.


 

2. BetAbram P1

Dimensions: 288 cubic meters / 10,170 cubic feet

Process type: Electron beam additive manufacturing

Material type: Sand and ceramic

Use and accessibility: Industry and construction

The Slovenian company BetAbram is said to be one of the key pioneers of 3D and P1 printers designed specifically for home printing purposes. This printer uses a reliable binder injection process to produce a material that is extremely comparable to concrete, making it perfectly suited for printing out well-structured architectural elements. The printer also uses two different nozzles for different types of prints.

BAAM created a 3D print of the Strati vehicle with help and technology from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.


 

5. KamerMaker

Dimensions: 14 cubic meters / 494 cubic feet

Process Type: Additive Manufacturing

Material type: Metal, sand and ceramic

Use and accessibility: Industry and construction

KamerMaker

DUS Architects advertises KamerMaker as the "World's First Large Mobile 3D Printer" and has won numerous awards for its innovative achievements. This printer is also the first to build an entire canal house in Amsterdam while using RepRap FFF-style technology. And, just in case an incredible 3D printer wasn't enough, a second KamerMaker was created shortly after to speed up production!

 

6. D-shape

Dimensions: 9 cubic meters / 317 cubic feet

Process type: Powder binder spray

Material type: Sand and ceramic

Use and accessibility: Industry


D-shape
D-shape

This unique 3D printer was patented in 2006 after being developed by Enrico and Riccardo Dini, who also founded the printer-making company Monolite UK Ltd. The 3D printing project really started in 2004 with the idea of taking the best parts of a standard, office-sized 3D printer and scaling them up. The D-shape project works in a number of different areas, each focusing on different applications of 3D printing.

More information

The D-shape uses magnesium-based particles and binders to create a finished print material that closely resembles sandstone or cement.


 

7. Voxeljet VX4000

Dimensions: 8 cubic meters / 282 cubic feet

Process type: Sand casting (Powder binder spray)

Material Type: Sand

Use and accessibility: Commercial and industrial


Voxeljet VX4000
Voxeljet VX4000

The Voxeljet VX4000 is used to produce prints similar to those of the ExOne Exerial, maintaining a strong focus on sand casting. Subsequently, molds manufactured with the VX4000 are commonly used for serial casting of architectural parts, art components, and jewelry. 3D printers are flexible and adaptable in that it can print one large mold or multiple batches of smaller molds.

Voxeljet AG has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2013.


 

8. ExOne Exerial

Dimensions: 3,696 cubic meters / 130.52 cubic feet

Process type: Additive manufacturing / Powder binder spray

Material Type: Metal and Ceramic

Use and accessibility: Commercial and industrial


ExOne Exerial
ExOne Exerial

This 3D printer is specially designed, focusing on serial sand core and mold production. It features ExOne's Binder Jetting technology, which means it precisely places the liquid binder to which particulate matter can adhere. Alternating layers of sprayed liquid adhesive and granular building materials, such as metal or ceramic, are created until the 3D print is complete.


More information

This 3D printer is available for purchase, but it is quite expensive at $500,000 or more!
