I Found My New 3D Printer… And CNC Machine

| August 31, 2016

Thermwood, who is a common name in the CNC industry, has launched a new machine called the L-SAM.  That stands for Large Scale Additive Manufacturing.  This concept is not entirely new as DMG Mori has an additive 5 axis metal 3D laser sintering and VMC.  The L-SAM prints slightly over-sized in all the common plastics and then 5 axis machines them down to proper size.  The L-SAM boast a extremely large 10’x100’x5′ build/machining envelope as an option.  That’s in feet people!  That’s 3m x 30 x 1.5m for the rest of the world.  I don’t think the DMG Mori has a work envelope quite that big 😉  This makes this machine a great choice for R&D, entertainment, aerospace and all sorts of other companies.  Click any of the pictures below to see Thermwood’s info page and watch a video of it in use.
