Large Scale 3D Printing with BigRep

Print BIG – BigRep Is Reinventing The Wheel

The BigRep ONE's ability to print big opens up endless possibilities in the automotive industry. Print life-size prototypes and parts for bicycles, motorbikes, cars and more!

The wheels are always in motion at BigRep, to consistently push the boundaries of design for 3D printing. BigRep Product Designer Marco Mattia Cristofori wanted to develop an object to show the benefit of 3D printing for industrial use,  the BigRep wheel rim. An alternative to CNC-machining a prototype, he wanted to design the wheel rim prototype for large-scale 3D printing. Customisation of vehicle features is very popular. However, prototyping these custom parts is often expensive and time-consuming. With 3D printing it becomes a much easier process to design automotive prototypes for form checks and molding. (more…)
MACH 22

The Manufacturing And Engineering Community Returns In Style

The long awaited MACH exhibition saw thousands attend to experience the very latest in manufacturing technologies and advanced engineering. "The feeling that optimism is growing in the manufacturing and engineering sectors was certainly not misplaced on the final day of MACH, as bumper levels of business have been transacted during the show." MACH It was a great opportunity for Emvio to show off the capabilities of both the SYIL X7 and BigRep ONE machines. We were lucky enough to have 'The UK Machinist' swing by for a demo of the SYIL X7, as well as seeing past, current and future customers! (more…)

World First CNC Titanium Oyster Knives

Emergo Designs create worlds first titanium oyster knives, made using the SYIL X7.

With the help of the SYIL X7 CNC Machine fitted with an LNC controller, Emergo have brought a unique product to market. Watch how a billet of titanium is transformed into a masterpiece, almost too pretty to use! 

Alex Bol, Owner of Emergo Designs said;

"Ever since I’ve graduated as an engineer, I wanted to bring CNC into my knife making process. It takes a lot of thought and programming to run a computer controlled milling machine. The advantage is that once the computer knows what to do, the making becomes partially automated."

The reason why I wanted to start CNC milling these oyster opening tools is the extra creative freedom that it’s offering. Titanium is more flexible and it’s impossible to rust. But you could never successfully work the metal by hand."

"My knives are a combination of craftmanship and modern manufacturing."

"In 2014 I developed my first oyster knife. Now my company Emergo Designs proudly makes and sells exclusive oyster opening tools that ship all over the world."

Bondtech

Pioneers in 3D Printing

Bondtech, the dual extruder manufacturer

Bondtech develops, designs and manufactures unique dual drive extruders that eliminate the risk of grinding, slipping, filament deformation and under extrusion. Using two counter-rotating drive gears, the Bondtech extruders grip and push the filament from both sides for a secure and stable filament feed. The result is a reliable, more precise and faster printing process.

The company was established in 2014 by Martin Bondéus, who had previously used 3D printing technology in his work as a product developer. When certain patents regarding the FDM technology expired at the beginning of the 2010s, Martin set out to build a 3D printer based on a pre-designed kit. The result, however, wasn’t satisfying. The performance and quality just weren’t there. So, Martin started building his very own printer from the ground up. Only this time the result was much better, but unfortunately still not good enough. Grinding, slipping and under extrusion translated into several failed prints. Scouting the internet for advice, he realised that the problem with bad, unreliable extrusion was universal. Everyone seemed to suffer from the same dilemma. An idea was born.

"Constantly improving our offer, we believe this is just the beginning."

Today, Bondtech manufactures Bondtech Dual Drive extruders and other innovative 3D printing products to users and retailers across the world.

Bondtech have understandably revolutionised the reliability and speed of printing using filaments. We are proud to be the UK partners to Bondtech since 2017.

With rapid growth, Bondtech has invested in faster and more accurate CNC machines, bringing production of their products almost all in-house. Naturally they are very well versed in making small precise objects.

The next step in their evolution has been the production of their own Nozzle Range. Most spectacular one in their range is for sure the CHT series.

Advantages of the Bondtech CHT® technology:

  • Higher melt capacity by increasing the surface area of the heating walls
  • Affordable price
  • Machined with ultra-precision
  • Brass nozzle with Nickel coated surface
  • Follows nozzle standards: RepRap (M6×1×7.5×12.5), MK8 (M6×1×5×13)

You can find our full range of Bondtech products here.

We even support other resellers that don't have in-house capability.

Emvio Engineering were recently called on to commission this BigRep Studio for TVL Security Ltd on behalf of BigRep themselves. TVL purchased their BigRep Studio 3D Printer to create prototypes in designing specialist locks for trade vehicles.

However Before them we have delivered and installed BigRep 3D printers to:

  • Yeovil College
  • Eaton Aerospace
  • Phoenix Instinct
  • Meighs and Westleys LTD
  • Sterling Automotive
  • Vertical Aerospace
  • University of Glasgow

At the time of writing we are due to install another machine at the University of the West of Scotland too.

    Why You Should Combine CNC Machining And 3D Printing

    Is CNC Machining Better Than 3D Printing?

    Perhaps it's not about choosing one or the other? Combining 3D printing with CNC machining can very beneficial in the manufacturing industry. And we can help you with both! As official partners of BigRep and Syil, we can best inform you on both manufacturing methods! Many workshops rely on CNC machining as the backbone of their production processes. However, with the rise of additive manufacturing, more and more companies are adding 3D printing into the workflow. So, why should you combine CNC and 3D? (more…)
