Just out of curiousity, what is the largest 3d print that has been done on this machine and how did it turn out quality wise?September 12, 2015 at 7:50 pm #3075
I haven’t done any large prints but I have done a whole bunch of the roller F’s…February 4, 2016 at 7:30 pm #7015
Bump for this. That’s one of the things that intrigues me with this machine. Any big prints out there?February 4, 2016 at 7:44 pm #7016
I’m interested too.
I eventually would like to try at least a large print or two. Maybe a guitar or ukelele, or maybe something else. I’m looking at what I need to get to put together a whole extruder head with a volcano (most likely a clone). With such a large build area, I would want to pumping out a lot of plastic fast.
A friend of mine is building a custom three wheel car – a single seater with a vw bug front end and motorcycle rear end. He asked me the other day if I could 3D print fenders for him. I told him not right now, but give me a couple of months and I just might!February 4, 2016 at 8:09 pm #7019
Sounds like you want the extruder from this monster.

That’s insane. Of course I want to build one 🙂February 6, 2016 at 2:47 pm #7132
Heh, the partdaddy used abs or pla pellets instead of extruded filament!February 7, 2016 at 3:24 pm #7189
and the quality is poor. I used to have a Rostock Max V2. i just never got it dialed in like I had hoped.
You can see from that image that the quality isnt fantastic.
I own 2 SLA printers and a taz 5 and of course could make my MPCNC in to a printer if i wanted.
However, without HEIGHT, i dont see the overall value of printing BIG. for example , a big benefit of large format is Cosplay full helmets in 1 piece. I did an Iron man full size on my taz5 .
A Large printer no more than a few inches tall doesnt intrigue me much.February 7, 2016 at 7:51 pm #7209
Well it is using a 4mm nozzle, not .4, but 4mm! That’s quite a bit bigger than the filament we use on our printers. It can also print 4 foot diameter objects. Let’s see your taz do that! My Max v2 prints awesome, and yes, it’s a pain in the ass to get dialed in, but they’re fun to watch print.
Also, if you’re going to use the mpcnc as a printer, then you can make the z as long as you want. You don’t have to worry that much about side forces for printing, unless you get some print curl, then things will get ugly.February 8, 2016 at 9:37 pm #7308
That thing regularly prints vases that kids can stand in. The layer height is like half a centimeter not .2mm.
Sorry to hijack the thread with the post about the partdaddy, it was just too cool to pass up.
I think I would just buy a 12×12 sheet of glass and print on that. The standard z axis is taller than most prints I have to do.February 16, 2016 at 8:05 am #7656
I just finished my first successful test print. its a housing for a 7″ tonetec touchscreen. I printed all the parts for it at once. it took about 12 hours at 30mm/s. Largest thing I’ve ever printed since I only ever had a printrbot play.

Just look at that bridging…

That’s pretty impressive.February 17, 2016 at 4:15 am #7741
Printing at 50mm/s too!February 17, 2016 at 12:31 pm #7759
Did a one at a time print last night
Got up to it nearly finished this morning. although I still have some bed leveling to do, its working like a dream.
