What can you make with a large 3D printer?

3D Printers can make some amazing parts.  With it’s 8″ x 12″ print bed, the Airwolf 3D Printer XL can make some extra large parts!

The staff here at Airwolf 3D put it into overdrive this weekend and made a 1/12th scale  replica of a Lancia Stratos.  This is a copy of a thing which was originally designed on Feb 13, 2013 by the nice folks at MakerBot.

We took it a step further and printed here at 140%.  We used PLA for the body and printed with a .35mm nozzle at a layer height of 200 microns (.2mm).  The remainder of the parts were made with ABS and a .5mm nozzle at the same layer height.  With the large build platform, we were able to make all the black parts in one pass.  Great model and great fun!
