German studio BigRep developed an open-source printer that is large enough to print full-sized pieces of furniture, allowing designers take on bigger projects without multiple prints and assembly.

With a sizable build volume of 45 x 39 x47 inches, the ONE printer is by far the biggest print bed of any consumer model. The printer itself is constructed with an aluminum frame, and has a print resolution of 100 microns (0.1 mm).

This machine prints using common plastics, but can also handle complicated mixtures of wood fibers and polymers, thanks to the fused deposition modeling (FDM) technique.

The BigRep One made its first appearance at the 3D PrintShow in New York, and will be available for purchase starting March/April, with a suggested price of $39,000. If you are looking to 3D print your own furnishings, you can contact the designers Lukas Oehmigen and Marcel Tasler to get a quote here.
