14 very large format 3D printers in 2017


Very large format 3D printers have become more and more popular during the last few years. An increasing amount of manufacturers are making big 3D printers that can 3D print huge objects in one go.

When we say big 3D printers, we mean big! These large volume 3D printers are capable of 3D printing objects that are over 1 meter high or 1 meter wide. Some of the objects that these gigantic machines 3D print are large pieces of furniture or very large prototypes. In addition, these large scale “beasts” are also capable of 3D printing series of products or prototypes.

We’ve put together a list of the largest professional 3D printers commercially available for under $60,000.

Very large format 3D printers selection criterion

For our large scale 3D printer selection, we took into account the following criterion:

  • Available under $60,000
  • Extrusion technology
  • Build volume of at least 0.45 m³

Also, we didn’t include huge industrial additive manufacturing systems, as their prices start at a few hundred thousand dollars and can reach up to millions of dollars. That’s why those gigantic industrial 3D printing machines didn’t make it on our list.

We did, however, include a comprehensive selection of large scale industrial 3D printers and additive manufacturing systems as a special mention. These additive manufacturing machines are massive and use different 3D printing technologies than extrusion.

At Aniwaa, we are happy to receive feedback from our users. If you feel that we should include another 3D printer in this list, feel free to send us an email at [email protected]
