World's tallest 3D printed Empire State building - 1800 mm tall
The Builder Extreme 2000 is one of the biggest FDM 3D printers available today. Despite is huge print volume, there is no loss in print quality, not even at the top. With a print volume of 700x700x1820 mm (XYZ), it’s seen as the perfect 3D printer for really tall prototypes, statues and buildings.
Builder 3D Printers is known for the Builder Extreme range, an affordable but professional large 3D printer range, and has been focussing on the European market. When Builder announced to start offering the Builder Extreme range to USA enterprises with their exclusive distributor Dynamism Inc in Chicago, they have been 3D printing an Iconic building, the Empire State building, to show off the capability of the machine.
With its dazzling height of 1800 mm, the 3D printed Empire State building, printed on the Extreme 2000, is the tallest 3D printed Empire State building ever made. The Empire State building was 3D printed with a 0.4 nozzle, a layer height of 0.3 mm, weighs 15 kg and was 3D printed non-stop. Why not using a bigger nozzle as the Extreme comes with a 0.4, 0.8 and 1.2 mm? The 300 hour prints shows off the reliability of the Extreme 2000.
Note only was the Empire State building chosen because it is a well-known building, but there is also a lot of details in the building. In the video below you can see the end result of the World’s tallest 3D printed Empire State building.
