Printing sizes plastics

Here’s an interesting — and handy guide — i.materilise sizing references for each material. Because most of the 3D printing services have a combination of off-the-shelf industrial grade 3D printers and owns they have built or heavily modified themselves, producing a set of rough volume models for each of the services for each of the materials would be really handy. Note that some of the smaller sizes are determined as much by the limits of the post-processing tools needed for certain materials and finishes. Via Fabbaloo:

Bert: “Every material has its own 3D printing technique and therefor its own set of design specifications including the printing size. An important driver in your design process will be the size of your design. Each material has its own machine which has a limited building volume. This volume is the maximal 3D space an object can be, printed as one entity and is indicated on the material page and in the design guide of our materials. To allow an easy comparison between the different materials, we created an overview of printing sizes for plastics, metals and other materials.”
