3D Platform pre-releases WorkCenter 500 large format 3D printer

3D Platform (3DP), a US-based manufacturer of large-format, industrial-strength 3D printers, is pre-releasing the WorkCenter 500 – a new extra-large format 3D printer.

“The overwhelmingly positive response to 3DP’s Excel machine has made one thing clear – not all customers need multiple gantries, and both additive and subtractive capabilities. Also, many who need an extra-large format machine cannot afford to spend $750k or more. Therefore, we set out to design a purpose-built machine for extra-large format additive manufacturing that wouldn’t break the bank.” Jonathan Schroeder, President of 3DP.

Bigger and more affordable

Enter the WorkCenter 500! Starting at under $200k USD, this extra-large format 3D printer has been designed to provide affordability – without sacrificing quality or throughput. It uses a Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) system and o ers an extra-large build volume of 1.4 m x 2.8 m x 700 mm.

WorkCenter 500 is currently the only machine on the market in the large format category to provide the option of pellet or filament extruder(s) – or both! These high volume extruders offer a choice of throughput rates ranging from 1.3 kg/hr to more than 7.5 kg/hr. Customers can then utilize a wide variety of open market filament/pellets and software that can deliver up to a 90% savings vs. closed eco-system machines. 3DP is now accepting applications for limited beta-sites and pre-order reservations.
