1m3 Printer 

1m3 Printer was designed and fabricated by JIMMI. The printer is designed to be a tool for printing macro scale objects, including furniture and architectural components. In addition to having a large available printing area, an extra large extrusion system allows for printing of large volumes of plastic quickly.

The printer was produced in the Digital Fabrication Facilities at Open Works Baltimore, and in Spring 2017 we set up shop for the Core 77 residency at A/D/O in Brooklyn to test printing parameters and eventually move on to printing of functional objects (see project for more info).

1m3 uses a variety of custom printed and CNC machined components. We built the machine to be as lean as possible, to set the stage for rapid and continued development.

The extruder is capable of pushing out a lot of material quickly. It is modelled after an injection molding machine, and uses a heated screw conveyor that is fed with PLA pellets. Pellets are pigmented for printing in a range of colors.
