Elegoo is launching a new product. Kickstarter campaign to fund its new giant 3D printer —the OrangeStorm Giga. We mean it when we say “giant”. This 3D printer is so large that it can print a child. It’s expected to release with a $2500 price tag.
The OrangeStorm Giga’s build volume is 800 mm x 800-mm x 1,000 mm (31.5 inches x 31.5″ x 39.5 inches). The standard 3D printers are 250 x250 x250 mm, while a larger one may be 400-500 mm. It is much easier to print large objects in one shot than it is to divide them up into several prints. Imagine printing a large piece of furniture or a life-size statue. Or a large helmet. The printer is bigger than a child.
This large capacity allows you to print multiple items at the same time. OrangeStorm Giga allows you to add three nozzles along the X-axis, for a total four nozzles. Each nozzle has to be loaded separately with filament. This makes it possible for four identical items to be printed at the same time, using four different types of materials.
