3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry and is in the process of replacing many other production methods. Our design team decided to put this idea to the test by looking at which plastics technologies we could replace with large-scale 3D printing.

The world’s largest standard available 3D printer comes from, you guessed it, Berlin. In the Pop-up-Stores the printing process will be showcased on-screen, plus there will be an online contest
It was still summer, when we had Angela Gruber @netzkolumnistin, a young reporter from Munich (now based in Jerusalem) here at BigRep. She spent half an afternoon asking Lukas tons of questions, and her camera man had him posing in front of our printers and everywhere in the office . Quite tiring, but good fun as well. Angela wanted to find out, what became of the 3D printing revolution. Her conclusion: It may take longer and it may go down a different road from what we expected one or two years ago. But 3D printing will prevail – most probably in manufacturing first. In her feature about “3d printing – the stiff revolution” on German TV “ZDF info” Angela quotes experts saying, that the breakthrough for 3D printing will take place rather in big manufacturing companies than in rivate households. BigRep founder Lukas Oehmigen is one of them. Now the feature has been broadcasted. You can watch it here:
In Berlin-Kreuzberg wird der Big Rep gebaut, einer der größten derzeit erhältlichen 3D-Drucker. Golem.de hat die Entwickler getroffen und sich das Gerät angeschaut.
