Well, because my 3D printer is very big.
If the robot is just on its own, we can build things about 1 – 2 m in size. The robot itself is about 3 m.
We have also put the robot on tracks that are 10 m long so now it can build things 10 m long.
Unlike other 3D printing techniques, WAAM isn’t in an enclosed chamber. We can just do it in a normal environment. That’s why we picked it! We like building big things.
why did we invent 3D printers
