3D Printing Industry Meeting: Recap from Rapid + TCT 2021
The BigRep team was excited to be back live, in-person at RAPID+TCT, North America’s largest and most influential event for 3D printing and additive manufacturing. For BigRep, it was the perfect opportunity to showcase our large-format 3D printers and applications of our customers who #THINKBIG.
3D Printed Life-Size Dinosaur Models
CDM:Studio 3D printed over 110 models in just 9 months. In the past, each dinosaur or animal would have had to been modelled out of clay, which takes a very long time and very skilled sculptures to. And with a timeline of only 9 months, this could only be done with a 3D printer.
Large Metal Casting Patterns Produced 33% Faster
Teignbridge uses a BigRep ONE large-scale industrial 3D printer for propeller production. The BigRep ONE 3D printer is used to 3D print a full-size replica of the designed propeller to be the positive pattern for the cast mold.
PLA vs. ABS and More – Choose the Right Filament
PLA and ABS are the most commonly used filaments out there.
But which one should you pick? And are there other filament options for your application?
BigRep Introduces the BigRep SHIELD, a Large-Format Dry Cabinet for Optimal Material Storage Conditions
BigRep SHIELD dry cabinet stores up to 60 kg of filament in ideal conditions, eliminates more than 99% humidity, reduces material waste by 20% and repair costs up to 50%.
FDM vs. SLA 3D Printer: Choose the Right Technology
FDM and SLA are the most common 3D Printing technologies. But what are their strengths and weaknesses. Which one should you choose?
3D Printed Auto Interior Design and Manufacturing
“This ‘73 Bronco console, we 3D printed with our in-house BigRep 3D printer. This is by far the largest print we have tried and couldn’t have been happier with the results.”
Local Manufacturing Accelerates with BigRep PRO
“Our region is so commercially diverse. It’s our responsibility to understand what technologies will bring the most value to our partner network,” says Steven Longpre, Operations Manager at BIC. “When we presented the BigRep PRO as a potential new addition, our partners were thrilled with the idea.”
Automotive Applications with the BigRep PRO
The BigRep PRO is the most user-friendly, large format 3D printer available on the market and adoption continues to increase, specifically in the automotive sector for a variety of applications.
