MetalTree’s HUGE 3D Printer demos at Sydney Maker Faire
Meet the Metaltree 3D Printer maker Jason Crowe.
At 1.2m high this is the biggest 3D printer I have seen (and none of it is support cabinet), earlier in the year we researched over 50 printers in our 3d printers comparison and this is significantly larger build volume than anything I have seen on the market short of the industrial versions.
It uses a Delta configuration which means that the extruder head moves around on 6 arms and the build plate doesn’t move at all.
This simplifies construction and allows for a larger build space for a given size and weight than a traditional 3d Printer where the extruders move X Y but the build plate moves up and down as the item is printed.
This is still a prototype so its not ready for production yet, Jason is working towards getting it production ready and plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign to sell them next year.
