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!
