Size Matters In 3D Printing With Todd Ronan Of re:3D
Does size really matter when it comes to 3D Printing? Depending on your what, 3D Print size might mean everything to you and your business. Hear about the different industries and businesses where 3D print size is critical from our special guest, Todd Ronan, Strategic Global Sales Consultant for re:3D, developers of the largest open source printer, the Gigabot, which has huge build volume size of about 8 cu.ft.
As a designer, having a huge 3D Print size build volume capacity seems like a dream… especially if your what is already large, like furniture. But before we just jump into bigger is always better, we should take into consideration other factors like time, space and return on investment. Check out what we learned from our discussion on 3D Print Size with Todd Ronan – Strategic Global Sales Consultant for re:3D. Throughout May 2015, their huge Gigabot 3D Printer can be seen at events in Las Vegas, New York and Houston; and as this airs, Todd will be at the Offshore Technology Conference for the Petroleum and Gas industry.
