Ultimaker Releases Metal 3D Printing Expansion Kit for S5 Platform

“Bigger is better,” as the old adage goes. When it comes to a juicy steak, or a diamond ring, these words always hold true. When it comes to 3D printing, however, there still remains some debate.

The 2nd World 3D Printing Technology Expo was held in Qingdao, Shandong, China this past week (June 19-22). It featured thousands of individuals from China, United States, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and almost a dozen other countries. They were there to discuss the latest breakthroughs in 3D Printing, including possible applications, material use, business models and more.

Qingdao Unique Products Develop Co., Ltd, a company known for their high quality Desktop 2D and 3D Printers, apparently believes that the old catch phrase doesn’t only apply to gemstones and beef. They apparently believe it to hold true for 3D printers as well. The company was on hand at the 3D printing conference this past week to show off something quite amazing. They introduced what they refer to as the ‘World’s Largest’ 3D printer, which has an incredible X and Y axis of 12 meters (almost 40 feet) each.

This new gigantic 3D printer will set out on its first official task, of printing out a replica of the world famous “Temple of Heaven”, a religious building located in central Beijing. The replica will be 7 meters in diameter and 8 meters high, and is expected to take around 6 months to complete. Representatives from Qingdao were on hand to show off a mini-replica of the Temple of Heaven, in which they will be printing on their large 3D printer.

In the future, this incredible printer may be used to construct homes and other buildings, as they have come up with a specially formulated printing material which uses a combination of graphene and fiberglass, to creating an extraordinarily strong printing material. The company plans to challenge the 3D printed canal house project currently on-going in the Netherlands.

“The project in the Netherlands is an interesting one, but we plan to eclipse it by making our buildings stronger and easier to print,” explained a representative of Qingdao to 3DPrint in an email.

Qingdao Unique Products believes that their printer is superior to the ones used in the Netherlands in that it will be able to print entire houses out in one go, rather than using 3D printed pieces that are then bonded together, like in the construction of the Dutch Canal House project. Qingdao’s buildings should be three times as strong because of their specially formulated printing material.

China has long been known for their extremely large 3D printers. It should be interesting to see how their 3D printing house project goes. Being able to print out buildings nearly 40 feet in diameter should be quite sufficient in the construction of some smaller homes. With this said, Qingdao may still create a larger printer in order to print even larger buildings in the future.

What do you think about this incredible new 3D printer? Would you want your house constructed with it? Discuss in the Large Chinese 3D printer forum thread on 3DPB.com
