BigRep Announces BigRep ONE.2 1.3m³ 3D Printer

BigRep is bringing big ideas to life. At EuroMold 2014 in Frankfurt the Berlin based company is showing for the first time its new model, the BigRep ONE.2. With a working volume of 1100 x 1067 x 1097 mm (1.3 m³) it is one of the biggest 3D printers available. The prototype BigRep ONE was introduced in February 2014 and caused a sensation all over the global 3D-printing community. Whereas conventional 3D-printers mostly produce hand-sized models, the BigRep ONE.2 is enabling its users to realize objects and molds in full scale.

With a printing volume of nearly 1.5 m³ prototypes, models or molds can be printed out directly, and products for end users like designer furniture are also easily to realize. At EuroMold 2014, BigRep will demonstrate that the BigRep ONE.2 is perfectly apt to produce molds as well. BigRep ONE.2 printed full-scale molds for glass vases. With these molds, a glassmaking factory realized vases at a size of 40 x 60 cm.  Vases, molds and of course the BigRep ONE.2 are exhibited at EuroMold 2014, hall 11.0 / booth F86.

BigRep ONE.2 uses Fused Deposition Modeling/ Fused Filament Modeling (FDM/FFM). This is by far the most cost-effective method on the market and allows at the same time the use of a vast range of colors and materials. Production and global sales of BigRep ONE.2 have started. The printers are being shipped to Europe, Asia and the USA.

Lukas Oehmigen, CTO and founder of BigRep comments: “With our lates project we are demonstrating, how 3D-printing can be used in manufacturing. Our objective is to make full-size 3D-printing affordable for everyone – in design, prototyping and manufacturing. In this class, we are setting the standards. Costs for printer and filament are far below those of our competitors. Thus, we will revolutionize manufacturing and make it more flexible.”
