large format 3d printing

Design smarter. Build stronger. Create sustainable products. 

how can large format 3d printing benefit my company?

Rapid Prototyping.
Create, print, refine. Using 3D printing, your first prototype will be finished in a matter of hours. Identify and solve design problems easier and quicker with 3D printing. Large parts may be produced from a variety of durable plastics which makes prototyping inexpensive. 

Create without Limits. 
Think your design would be better hollow instead of solid? Let additive manufacturing spark your imagination and make your design dreams come true. See Figure 1.1 for an example of how Boeing engineers use 3D technology to create the unthinkable. 

Enhance Quality.
Many materials used in 3D printers can be reinforced with plastics and metal materials or treated with light and heat to make them even stronger than their heavy, steel counterparts. 


3D printing technology uses lasers to create products with precision. This means less waste and more money saved.

Rapid Manufacturing.
Quickly get your products on the market, giving you a competitive advantage over companies with similar products.



Boeing’s website posted this model on their website in 2014, when the company first began investing in 3D printing. The model demonstrates how their engineering has been able to re-imagine the shape and structure of various parts without compromising its functionality. Richard Aston, Senior Technical Fellow at Boeing, says using 3D technology, “design configurations that had once been unproducible were now possible.”
