Needed to print very large parts with speed and quality so i have added this giant to my two Robox units. It is custom made and has a print volume of 550mm3.

@click it is funny my two robox can be stacked on the buildplate with some leftover room. It has a 700w heater bed which plugs directly to the power outlet and 400C capable dual hotend. I switched the glass plate with a garolite bed as an experiment and because glass breaks easily. Will be fun to print some really large models with it.

Looks great. If you have built it yourself - did you plan, maybe, to document the build? (With bill of material and links, too.)

I bet that you needed Roboxes to print plastic parts :)

@click i had a company build this one for me, i had them scale up one of their machines, and the overall cost including dual extruder and shipping actually came out well below robox. I am however building 2 more machines that I hope touse both this printer and robox to print the plastic parts, at least for the prototypes.

For our big printer we realised that you need a big reel for a big print. :)

Watching the last 20 hours of a 100 hour print is very stressful...

@pete i know right having to change an empty reel mid print will be stressful, i have some prints that will take about a week to finish, I am mentally preparing =) I have found a supplier in the US that sells 1, 10, 25 and 50kg reels, but such a big of a reel i thought would be hard to lug around. What is the heaviest reel you had the new machine extruder motor pull? The new machines looks pretty awesome btw
