BigRep | Big Ideas Big Prints
BigRep is a full- scale FFF 3D printer for studio and industrial use.
Conventional 3D printers can usually only produce hand-sized objects. BigRep printers can create objects in full-scale format, opening the imagination to yet unfathomed application areas.
With a printing volume of over one cubic meter its possible to produce prototypes and models on a 1:1 scale, or create final products such as designer furniture, directly with the 3D printing method.
How It Works
Founded in 2014, BigRep is constructed to feel at home anywhere, in rugged work environments, such as workshops or construction zones, in tidy offices or studios.
BigRep aluminum frame is just over five feet in every dimension and the build area is a robust 45X39X47 inches.
Technically, BigRep compares favorably to more modestly sized FFF printers like the Makerbot. BigRep features 100 micron layer thickness, the ability to print PLA, ABS and multiple colors with a dual-extruder print head.
BigRep, which has a build volume of 45ft cubed, about 27 times that of a typical Makerbot Replicator, retails for $39,000 which is outside the price range of most hobbyists.
Constructed with a full aluminum frame, incorporating CNC components to provide strength and robustness. Its dual extruders can print PLA, ABS, PVA, HDPE, PC, Nylon, TPE, Laywood and Laybrick. Despite its giant size, there is no compromise in print quality.
