One common obstacle we hear industrial makers deal with is size limitations when sourcing parts. The standard sizes for each advanced manufacturing technology simply aren’t enough for specific applications. That’s why we’re excited to offer the ability to order oversized parts that go far beyond the standard sizes typically available.
What does this mean for you? You can explore the possibilities for your applications in prototyping, spare parts, and series production, without worrying about size constraints. Instead of thinking in centimeters, you can design with meters in mind.

Understanding Each Technology
One of the core offerings is rapid casting in metals. With a size of up to three meters, this process allows for high precision and is often used for spare parts.
Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) in metals is another popular technology for oversized parts. This medium-precision process is ideal for functional prototypes and small series production. Our exemplary size in the longest dimension for this process is five meters.
For parts requiring additive manufacturing with metals, Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) offers high levels of precision and an exemplary size of .65 meters. Industrial makers often use this technology for functional prototypes and small-series production.
Another additive manufacturing technology for oversized parts is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). You can print polymer parts up to 2.5 meters in the longest dimension.
Sheet metal machining offers truly oversized parts of up to 12 meters. This technology is highly scalable, making it ideal for serial production.
CNC machining with metals offers similar advantages with parts up to 10 meters at scalable speeds. Parts made with this technology are especially precise.
