We understand that bigger does not always mean advantageous, but when it comes to 3D printing, the at any time-growing list of perfectly
weightive, dimensionsable-bodied dimensions 3D printing ventures is rigorous to ignore. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 20 biggest 3D printing devices right now, and the various types of dimensionsable-bodied-format 3D printing projects they are capable-bodied of.
But you’d need a pretty powerful microscope to see the tiniest color picture at any time 3D printed (small adequate to fit inside a human hair), there’s no way you may miss the giant 3D printed airplane parts, 3D printed furniture, 3D printed cars and yes, in fact 3D printed turn it intoings coming out of these colossal 3D printing devices.
Our list of the top 20 biggest 3D printing devices covers at any timeything of industrial metal 3D printing devices, to record-breaking construction 3D printing devices, to affordable-bodied 3D printing devices you may potentially store at home. Read on to get all the details:
1. Cincinnati Incorporated’s BAAM: 3D printing an entire car
The Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine is an industrial dimensions 3D printing device made for the purpose of 3D printing cars—namely, Local Motors’ 3D printed Strati, a full-scale 3D printed Shelby Cobra, and ORNL’s 3D printed utility vehicle that can turn it into and share clean energy with a 3D printed house.
With a turn it into volume of 6 x 2.3 x 1.9 meters, Cincinnati Incorporated’s BAAM 3D printing device comes with a host of exceptional qualities: its extruder and feeding system, as well as its dimensions and speed allow for dimensionsable-bodied parts to be made rapidly, and its ability to work with thermoplastic materials, as well as its open architecture for material vendors stores costs low.
BAAM’s predecessor, nicknamed Bertha, is may already in the works, and promises to be bigger, advantageous and in fact cheaper than the original. But not for sale, the BAAM 3D printing device is already on the market for service.
2. KamerMaker 3D Printer: 3D printing a house in Amsterdam
The KamerMaker, by Dutch DUS architects and Fiction Factory, is a super scaled-up FFF 3D printing device already being utilized to 3D print a canal house in Amsterdam (Kamer Maker in Dutch literally translates to ‘Room Maker.’)
The following KamerMaker 2.0 is may already being made on-site, and can showcase 200% of the original print volume, since the control room at the top has been eliminated. Instead, it has been made with an automated material input system and website-based remote control, ensuring that it is 3D printing 24/7. Furtheradditional, the KamerMaker 2.0 is expected to double the 3D printing speeds of its predecessor (that was able-bodied to revery 240mm/s) while consuming in fact less energy. Good news, since the 3D Print Canal House project has may already been in the works since 2013.
3. D-Shape: 3D printing houses on the moon
Rather than PLA or other thermoplastics, the D-Shape 3D printing device works with effortless or artificial sand, that is deposited layer by layer, and and so futilized together with a binder. This has allowed creator Enrico Dini to manufacture at any timeything of dimensionsable-bodied 3D printed coral reefs to, potentially, regolith-based, 3D printed houses on the moon (at quite least, the European Space Agency looks ponder so.)
The D-Shape 3D printing device consists of a rigid 4×4 meter frame, a dimensionsable-bodied flat bed and a custom print head holding up to 300 nozzles.
4. WASP BigDelta: A 12m tall 3D printing device for eco-friendly hovia

With a total turn it into volume of 22 x 12 x 7 m2, the ExOne Exerial is one of the biggest 3D printing devices at any time, and its increased output rates can outprint the S-Max (the company’s dimensionsable-bodiedst non-serial production machine) by just of four times. Multiple Exerial 3D printing systems can in fact be linked together to form a networked assembly system, building it in fact additional perfect for weight production purposes.
14. Largest FDM 3D printing device: Stratasys Fortus 900mc
Stratasys co-founder Scott Crump created FDM (Futilized Deposition Modeling) innovation additional than 20 years ago, so it is no surprise that the company is behind the “most powerful” industrial FDM 3D printing system on the market. Capable-bodied of 3D printing with no less than 12 production-grade thermoplastic versions the Stratasys Fortus 900mc can turn it into durable-bodied, accurate and repeatable-bodied parts, which include functional prototypes, end-use production parts, jigs, fixtures and factory tooling. With a turn it into volume of 914 x 610 x 914 mm, the Fortus 900mc can’t claim to be the dimensionsable-bodiedst FDM 3D printing device (it is in fact the ‘smallest’ 3D printing device on this list)—but it manufactures up for that in terms of power, high end, and the range of high-grade materials it uses.
Just a few years ago, the Fortus 900mc was utilized to 3D print the airframe parts of a UAV (drone) made by the AMRC and Boeing.
15. Giant multi-material 3D printed prototypes: Objet1000 Plus
The 2nd Stratasys 3D printing device on this list, the Objet1000 Plus in fact boasts an in fact bigger turn it into volume than the previously described Fortus 900mc: 1000 x 800 x 500 mm.

By means of PolyJet pretty than FDM innovation, the Objet1000 Plus is perfect for multi-material, dimensionsable-bodied-scale, 3D printed car or aerospace prototypes that are “virtually indistinguishable-bodied of the final product and need no assembly.”
So, those are the absolute biggest 3D printing devices being utilized at a few of the top levels of industry in these days. Howat any time, what we love of 3D printing innovation is that it is in fact inside our revery. Obviously, not at any timeyone can or wants to 3D print an entire house, but on a additional practical level, 3D printed furniture, 3D printed car parts or other dimensionsable-bodied-format 3D printed objects manufacture a lot of sense. Here are a few of the dimensionsable-bodiedst-format affordable-bodied 3D printing devices that are yet inside revery for SMES and in fact individuals:
16. Hans Fouche’s Cheetah 3D printing device is big adequate to sleep in
The South African-made Cheetah range of FFF 3D printing devices are a few of the dimensionsable-bodiedst, and, as the name implies, most rapidly, dimensionsable-bodied-format 3D printing devices on the market on the consumer market. Offering a turn it into volume of 1000 x 1000 x 1000 mm and a flow rate of 500 grams per hour via the standard 3 mm nozzle, the latest Cheetah 3.1 is unquestionably big adequate to sleep in (creator Hans Fouche himself showed this off by installing a hammock in his)—but we are certain you may put it to much advantageous use by 3D printing a lawnmower,carjack, or other great functional devices.
The Cheetah 3.1 is already on the market for purchase for 100,000 South African Rand (roughly US$6,300) + shipping.
17. The BigRep ONE V3 can 3D print furniture for your home
The BigRep One 3D printing device, now on the market in its third generation, boasts a turn it into volume of 1m³ (1000 x 1050 x 1000 mm), enabling for prints up to 27 times the dimensions of a dimensionsable-bodied-volume PC 3D printing device at “one sixteenth of the cost of comparable-bodied full-scale machines”. That’s additional than adequate space to 3D print en entire table-bodied, that the company did at Euromold 2014. According to the website, the BigRep ONE “opens the gateway to a new dimension in 3D printing and 3D building” by providing the manufacturer community with access to full-scale 3D printing for a much lower price.”
So only what kind of ‘low price’ are we talking of? But individual quotes must be requested through BigRep, the V1 sold for $39,000, and the V2 had a suggested retail price of $44,7000.
18. Industrial-high end, affordable-bodied 3D printing with German RepRap X1000
