The company was founded in 2014 by Marcel Tasler and Lukas Oehmigen. The BigRep is the biggest FDM 3d printer on the market. Its 1.3 m³ volume print space allows designers to create entire tables, chairs or coffee tables in one print.
Did you get that? You can now buy a 3d printer and print furniture! I predict we will be reporting on an entire house filled with 3D printed furniture very soon. Some crazy genius 3D designer is feverishly printing his bed and toilet right now. While having 27 times the volume of a large desktop 3D printer, it only costs about 5 times as much as the biggest Makerbot® machine.
BigRep is not the only company moving the 3D printed furniture future forward. A company called 4 AXYZ is also looking at using additive manufacturing to create smart furniture made of wood.
“BigRep One is a tool designed for professionals and creators who are seeking cost effective and high performance 3D printing systems that produce full-scale build-volume objects. From complex architectural or artistic objects to rock solid engineering parts, the BigRep One has build-space for unlimited opportunities.”
