West Palm Beach, Florida – Large scale 3D printing projects can be logistically complex and limiting for individuals and companies that aren’t located in a major 3D printing hub like New York or San Francisco. However, with the arrival of the new ErectorBot 644LX printer, Halo Technologies seeks to remove any and all barriers standing between local clients and their dream projects. John Calloway, owner and founder of Halo Technologies, is excited about the world of possibilities the ErectorBot printer opens up.
“The ErectorBot will poise Halo to offer one of the largest commercially available FDM printers on the east coast, especially in South Florida,” explains Calloway. “Our team is excited to bring this printer to West Palm Beach, as it is a huge step for Halo in our endeavor to serve the 3D printing needs of any sized project. While small tabletop printers are often used throughout the industry, they often pose constraints and limitations on the construction process. With the addition of the ErectorBot, that’s no longer a concern.”
FDM printing is perfect for larger projects, as it allows for flexibility in filament types, materials, and colors. From PLA to ABS to Nylon, any filament variation a project requires can be used. Additionally, FDM printing creates prints that are incredibly lightweight with unmatched durability. Further aided by the size of the 644LX, large projects can be completed in a single print. There are a number of benefits that come with the ErectorBot, which can be used for architectural, automotive, and other industries.
ErectorBot is a US based manufacturer specializing in large-scale, open source, multi-functional 3D printers. The company’s printers use the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printing method, which involves melting down thermoplastic filaments and extruding them one layer at a time. One of the largest advantages of the ErectorBot that Halo Technologies is most excited about is the ability to create fast prints, larger than historically possible. Additionally, these printers are able to still deliver high levels of details in each project, in addition to their speed.
“The manufacturer’s machines are open source and can be modified to work with any type of software, firmware, or project type. They can be adjusted to accommodate large-scale metal printing, injection molding elements, and general CNC machining. The great flexibility of these machines ensures that our clients won’t need to use a series of different machines in order to complete a single project. With printers like the 644LX, the machinery and electronics are agile enough to take on any challenge,” Calloway concluded.
ErectorBot’s 644LX is a true innovator inside an already innovative industry that’s enabling companies like Halo Technologies to solve a wide range of problems for clients of all backgrounds. Regardless of the size of the project, the industry or the specific needs, the 644LX is a versatile 3D printer that can make anything a reality. The ErectorBot is already being used in architecture, in the automotive industry, and in art, among other industries. Iconic artist Bruce Beasley is known not only for his incredible sculptures, but for his seamless integration of 3D printing in his creative process. 3D printing cut down the costs by using PLA filament for the main material. However, using a large scale printer also lent itself to a smoother bronze casting process and amazing end results.
Models are an essential part of any architectural project. They serve as realistic renderings and visualizations of the proposed finished product as well as a tangible object for the client to touch and move around. These models can help identify strengths and weaknesses in large projects, and can even communicate how a proposed project will affect the surrounding area. Unfortunately, these models can be extremely costly to produce, and any adjustments needed to be made prior to the construction phase can add significant delays to the project timeline. ErectorBot printers like the 644LX are great for creating models of even gigantic projects because firms no longer need to worry about problems going unseen as they might on smaller models. This can significantly reduce the cost of the model, cut down on production time, and make revisions a quick and easy process.
Automotive manufacturing is a slow, manual, expensive process; which is why the automotive industry stands to gain the most from the use of large scale 3D printers. In the automotive industry, parts need to be printed in small batches and production time can be lengthy depending on the materials. Committing to exact deadlines can be difficult because mistakes aren’t easy or cheap to fix. The ErectorBot can help automotive manufacturers rely less on suppliers, cut down production time, commit to consumer release dates without concern and utilize a vast new array of design materials. Better yet, large pieces can now be printed for a vehicle in a single job. Parts like hoods for cars or entire motorcycle bodies can now become a reality in half the time. Additionally, exotic cars in need of rare replacement parts no longer require a global hunt for an exact match, as the ErectorBot can handle the job without stress or an extravagant cost factor.
The ErectorBot 644LX will make an exciting addition to Halo Technologies’ South Florida location. The 3D printer will allow a number of individuals and companies to make their dream projects a reality, thanks to the printer’s ability to quickly print even large scale projects.
