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…)

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)

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…)

Get More From Your 3D Print With Bondtech CHT® Nozzles

GET 30% MORE MELT CAPACITY FROM YOUR HOTEND
If you are into 3D Printing and want to increase the flow, look no further. Bondtech CHT® nozzles split the filament into 3 thinner strands allowing to melt the material from within. In doing so, the material melts faster and higher flow rates can be used.

"The results are even better than what we promise" BONDTECH

Reliability Is Key When You Print BIG!

At Emvio, we're not afraid of letting our BigRep ONE run lights out

Those that have been using desktop printers since 2010, will know the issues that make 3D printing a chore. Grinding or clogged nozzles, bed adhesion, mechanical or electrical failures, the list goes on... For the most part, small 3D printers do small prints, but with BigRep, week-long prints are actually not uncommon. Of course, reliability is of utmost importance. The dread of a 5 day print failing on day 4 is real. However, BigRep machines are built using the very best components, and those components are assembled using best practices. Making these machines some of the most reliable on the market. (more…)

Canyon Prints 3D Bicycle Parts

Did you know that...

Canyon uses BigRep ONE large-format 3D Printers to iterate, optimise, and prototype new bicycle designs faster than ever. In this video you can see why Canyon chose to use a BigRep ONE.

Johannes Thumm, Senior Design Engineer at Canyon said; "We started a very exciting new project, where we wanted to rethink the way a mountain bikes needs to look."

He continued; "Thinking beyond the limits of traditional manufacturing and trying to see what's possible with new technologies like 3D printing." (more…)
