Objet has launched the Objet1000, the company’s largest 3D printer to date.

Featuring a 1000 x 800 x 500mm (39.3 x 31.4 x 19.6 inch) wide-format build envelope, the company says the Objet1000 is suitable for automotive vehicle and component producers that need to create industrial size, 1:1 scale prototypes.

The 3D printer offers a choice of over 100 materials, enabling designers and engineers to simulate both standard and ABS-grade plastics. The company claims the Objet1000 is able to print up to 14 different material properties within a single model.
