Washington, The biggest 3D printer of the world is installed in Advanced Structures and Composites Center, University of Maine, USA and the biggest boat got prepared with this printer in only 72 hours, which has the length of 25 meters. It has the weight of 5000 pounds (2.26 matric ton). The Biggest 3D Printer Printed Huge Boat.
This boat is not only a show piece but only durable and strong, which can face the tremendous waves of the oceans. Furthermore, this is the biggest structure being prepared by any 3D printer. This boat is called 3Dirigo and it is printed in the presence of the representatives of the Guinness Book of the World Record. Few days earlier, when this boat was presented for the public presentation, this boat got three big world records.
The printer, which printed this boat, is declared as the biggest 3D printer of the world. This boat is printed with the 3D printer and it is called biggest structure of the world and it is also claimed as the biggest 3D printed boat of the world.
To check the strength and durability of ‘3Dirigo’, it is passed through strict trials of different types in the Alfond W Square Ocean Engineering Laboratories of University of Maine, which were just like the real and dangerous environment of the open ocean and this boat remained successful in all these trials. According to the official website of University of Maine, if the extreme capabilities of this 3D printer are used, then it can get print 100 meters long, 25 feet wide and 10 feet high things.
Although the US government provided the funds in preparation of this boat and completion of all stages out of civil budget but the US army is taking deep interest in it because of the invention of such things in very few time and at very less cost for the military purposes.
