Help: large x and y axis needed!

Hi! For my graduation project I am looking for a special 3D printer. For the production of a large installation I especially need a wide x and y axis. Anything from 1 meter x 1 meter is interesting to me. In height I am only printing a few millimeters. I already found a Big Rep in the Netherlands, and 10XL. But they mostly have no time available on their machines. I have a tight deadline, 13th of June. I am counting on needing maybe a month to produce everything (including a week for getting all the settings straight). Does anybody have any suggestions? Possibly a printer I could use, helping me build a machine of our own, or a name/ company I could look into? I am Dutch and Amsterdam based..in case anybody is coincidentily just around the corner from me;-) Bye Tessa

Does your model need to be printed all in one go?  I have a machine that will do 500mm in each axis so could print your piece off in 4 sections.

Hi! I think in one go, or two, would be easiest. But if this is not possible, it think there is no alternative than to print it in sections... Where are you based, in case I would seriously need to consider using your machine? And would you have time available for prints during May?

Tessa,

 

I'm based in Scotland but have sent parts all over the world including to the Netherlands.  I should have time to run your print in May.  I have a couple of large jobs on the horizon but I'm sure I could squeeze yours in!

 

If you could drop me a line to enquiries@plastiprint3d.com with a rough idea of what your print is then I will be able to advise further.

Hi Tessa,

Feel free to upload your real sized 3D model to your 3D Print page: https://www.3dhubs.com/3dprint#?place=Amsterdam,%20Netherlands&latitude=... I have configured the link for you to search for Hubs in or around Amsterdam. If there are any Hubs that are able to print that size for you you will be able to directly place the order.

I hope that helps.
Best,
Nahla - 3D Hubs

Thanks Nahla, I am still working on the model! Nothing finished yet...:-)
