Voodoo manufacturing is supersizing its offerings with the announcement that the company now provides large-format 3D printing. Customers can now order 3D printed parts in PLA up to eight times larger than before with a five day turnaround.
Voodoo manufacturing, the 3D printing company based in Brooklyn, New York, has some news. The on-demand 3D print farm now offers single-part prints (in PLA) at up to 11.8 x 11.8 x 23.8 inches (300 x 300 x 605 millimeters) when going through the company’s 3D printing service.
This is a big change, upping their print volume capacity to one that dwarfs the previous limit of 11 x 6 x 6 inches (285 x 153 x 155 millimeters).
Customers that previously had to cut up prints will likely be very happy with the change.
The company explains in a blog post: “we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our services and add new, valuable capabilities for our customers. We’ve noticed demand for large-sized parts has been increasing, so we made it a priority to enable large-part production in our factory.”
Large Prints Offer Multiple Benefits for Customers
Voodoo Manufacturing’s announcement brings the company closer to their goal of making 3D printing a more viable alternative to traditional manufacturing.
“We think the new capability will allow our customers to bring new, bigger ideas and products to market faster, and with higher quality… Ultimately, we want to empower you to focus on building the product you want, instead of letting the product be dictated by the manufacturing method; to bridge the gap between idea and product,” the company’s blog post continues.
Powering Voodoo’s new push onto bigger and better prints is a suite of brand new Raise3D N2 Plus 3D Printers. Utilizing FDM as their means of 3D printing, the machines are capable of printing in a variety of materials.
Voodoo’s initial offering of PLA only indicates that reliability and speed are top of the agenda, given the trickier nature of temperature sensitive materials like ABS and PETG.
The company explains that a test print of a 6’1” mannequin needs to be split into 88 pieces to fit on their standard printers. However, with the Raise3D N2 Plus printers, the same mannequin can fit into just 19 pieces.
