New York based Robert Cervellione is an architectural designer and professor of architecture engaged in digital design and fabrication research. Cervellione started a project One-to-One on Kickstarter for developing large scale 3D printer and is now taking pledges. The One-to-One intends to increase the building envelope to 30" x 60" x 36" (762 x 1524 x 914 mm) for the initial prototype. And the goal in the long term is to build a 3D printer up to scale of 48" x 96"(1219 x 2438 mm) and beyond. The speed and the precision will be correspondingly adjusted.
This project will be a UV resin based system. The material is bio based UV resin which is eco-friendly and can be easily recycled.
This kind of big scale 3D printer has a potential to use in making wall systems, furniture, ceilings, doors, exterior cladding and many other contraction related items. So if you find it a good project and would like to push the current state of fabrication to the next level, you can consider backing this project. All research into the material, mechanics and other related finds will be open source, says Robert.
