Large format 3d printer
#7
A huge format 3D printer would be too slow for producing anything in bulk. But it may be useful for one off prototyping. Sure you could print large items like plastic lawn furniture but who would wait 45 hours for it to print a chair unless it was a really cool piece of art too? I'm also making a larger machine but not for any reason in particular...just because the rods were long and I can. I don't think I will ever print anything larger than 10 inches but it will be capable of items 2 feet by 1 foot by 2 feet. You better have the entire thing in a temperature controlled box, I can't imagine how much of a problem warping will be for you. And only bolt the table in the middle so it can expand and contract or it will buckle. Leveling a 5 foot by 10 foot stainless steel sheet may be quite a challenge.
