World’s Largest 3D printer built in China ...Watchout XOne
The massive laser sintering 3D printer has a build volume of 1.8m3 and can reduce print processing time by some 35%. In addition, the printer’s “contour scanning” printing technique can also reduce manufacturing costs by 40% when compared to other laser sintering machines.
Yeah, but 35% faster in China is 10,000 times slower when you factor in the time it takes takes to ship the finished product from Shanghai to Peoria. Besides, with China's record for violating intellectual property rights, what company would knowingly choose to put their detailed designs in a Chinese computer or run them on Chinese softwarewhen there are other options?
