Design and Performance Evaluation of A Large FDM 3D Printer
This build includes the design of a large FDM 3D printer. This machine has a 796mm by 796mm by 900mm (LxWxH) build volume. Motion is controlled by servo motors and the printer runs on python-based marlin firmware.

Reason for this BuildI decided to build this machine after I detected a need for industrial-grade FDM 3D printers within the African market.
I'm of the opinion that in the near future, the need to buy and replace parts of industrial 3D printers within Africa would be great. Importing from outside Africa would not be sustainable.
When fully built, this will be the largest industrial FDM 3D printer manufactured in West Africa.
