3D Printer Can Produce Full-Sized Furniture For The Living Room [Video]
BigRep's One model features the largest 3D printer bed to date.
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.
