The Builder Extreme 2000 is one of the biggest FDM 3D printers available today, working with 700 x 700 x 1820 mm (XYZ) in the build. Despite its huge print volume, there is no loss in print quality, not even at the top. It is seen as the perfect 3D printer for really tall prototypes, statues and buildings.
Large-scale 3D prints for the Big Apple
Builder 3D Printers are known for the Builder Extreme range, an affordable but professional large 3D printer range, and has been focusing on the European market. When Builder announced to start offering the Builder Extreme range to USA enterprises with its exclusive distributor Dynamism Inc. in Chicago, it had been 3D printing an Iconic building, the Empire State building, to show off the capability of the machine.
3D printing the Empire State Building
With its dazzling height of 1800 mm, the 3D printed Empire State building, made on the Extreme 2000, is reportedly the tallest 3D printed Empire State building ever made measuring 1800 mm high.
The Empire State building was 3D printed with a 0.4 nozzle and a layer height of 0.3 mm. It weighs 15 kg and was fabricated in one, non-stop, build. The 300-hour print shows off the reliability of the Extreme 2000.
The Extreme also comes with bigger nozzles, sized 0.4, 0.8 and 1.2 mm.
A complete masterpiece
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.
Besides the Empire State building, the Builder Extreme 2000 has also been used for 3D printing life size dinosaurs, statues, chairs and more. Some of these interesting business cases are available on Builders website, click here to read some of them.
