Top 10 Large Format 3D Printers
5 (100%) 3 votes

When it comes to 3D printing, size does matter. Kit built 3D printers and cheap kickstarter  printers are fine for 3D printing small trinkets; But after you learn the basics of 3D printing on these dainty machines, you come to realize that you want a printer that can actually print something bigger than a trinket. You discover as you get 3DHub orders that you want to print large cosplay props and small batches of items. With that in mind here is my list of the top 10 3D printers that have a build plate greater than 200 x 200 mm




Lulzbot Taz 6: Lulzbot is known for high quality and dependable printers. The Taz 6 is their newest large print volume (280 mm x 280 mm x 250 mm) printer.Taz 6’s also feature bed auto leveling and nozzle cleaning. These two features are an upgrade from the Taz 5’s.

Cost: $2,500

Pros: Contained power unit, Auto leveling and nozzle cleaning. Runs 1.75 and 3 mm filament.

Cons: The nozzle cleaning strip cut some build plate space from the Taz 5.

  1. One you should look at is the RB2. Originally it was a Kickstarter with the RigidBot1. The company went under and was taken over by Laser Weld Design, who has released the RB2. These are being closed out for the upcoming RB3.
    I bought the original KS kit and LOVE the machine. It has a 10 x 10 x 10″ BV and is HIGHLY hackable (my hack/mod list is a mile long) with many high grade upgrade parts and STLs available through our google group. And for support, you can’t beat our group. We have over 2500 members of all specialties from engineers to coders.
    I think you can still even get an upgrade kit for a 14″ Z expansion and a 12 x 16 frame and bed mod through Laser Weld. And for $769 for the 10 x 10 10″ RB2, it is definitely great value for money.
    (I am in no way affiliated with Laser Weld, I just love my machine)
