HAND PICKED 3D PRINTING KNOWLEDGE
Additive manufacturing (AM) isn’t just one process. It’s a whole workflow that can impact product development from design to manufacturing. Dive into how AM works, where it can be used, what the future might bring.
In this guide, you learn about common 3D printing post processing methods for use at home or in the workshop to help you find the right workflow to perfect your parts.
NERA shows that the low cost and fast results of additive manufacturing allow designers to immediately test prototypes and rapidly produce iterations of experimental engineering.

Setting the Pace for Customized Electric Cars – The First BigRep PRO in China
XEV is an innovative, forward-thinking company, with a mission to provide sustainable urban mobility to everyone for a better shared future. And additive manufacturing plays an important role in development and production of their electric cars!
Large-format 3D printing accelerates fire engine manufacturing
3D printing has become an integral part of Magirus’ prototyping and product development workflows, especially for the production of aesthetic and ergonomic fire engine parts. The team frequently use the BigRep ONE to 3D print functional prototypes, which can be fitted and tested on trucks in order to validate the part design before tooling and production.
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.
