Desktop 3D printer
21 February 2018, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Creating proof of concept prototypes, working prototypes and demonstration models are some of the most common commercial uses of FDM 3D printing. FDM, or fused deposition modelling, is a low-cost form of 3D printing and is commonly used for creating all sorts of models and prototypes. It is the form of 3D printing used by hobbyists in homemade machines from plans available on Github and other websites. There are also many commercially available machines on the market.

Unfortunately, most of the machines available have relatively small build volumes, i.e., the size of the model that they can create. Typically, this is about 200 x 200 x 300 mm which is small for any commercial use. In many cases prototypes are larger than this and have to be printed in multiple parts and glued together, which is not entirely satisfactory.

To overcome this obstacle, the CR-10 from Creality comes in three sizes of build volume, the smallest being 300 x 300 x 400 mm, the next size being 400 x 400 x 400 mm and the largest 500 x 500 x 500 mm. It comes partially pre-assembled and takes less than 30 minutes out of the box to assemble and start printing. A YouTube video of the assembly and testing can be viewed at https://goo.gl/4oYVz8
