One of the world’s largest hybrid 3D printing machines, which is capable of producing large parts and structures for construction projects, is now operational.

The Large Additive Subtractive Integrated Modular Machine (LASIMM), is said to feature unique metal additive and subtractive capabilities.

LASIMM has been developed by ten partners across the European Union at an estimated cost of €5 million (US$5.7 million).

Eurico Assunção, deputy director at LASIMM Project coordinator the European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting, said, “While 3D printing for consumers and makers has received a great deal of publicity, it is within the industrial manufacturing and construction industries that this technology could have its most significant and lasting impact.”
