Undoubtedly it seems that Spain is one of the countries where work is being done the most in terms of the development and evolution of 3D printing. Thanks to this we can talk about the implementation of projects as interesting as the manufacture of the Europe's largest 3D printer, which is being carried out in the city of Vigo by four specialists registered with the FabSpace Galician Cooperative Society.
As we have learned, the promoter of the project is none other than Marco Duran, founding partner of the well-known FabLab in whose curriculum we find that he has belonged to other great FabLab in the world such as London or Belfast. As Marco Durán himself has commented:
In London I learned, I saw that there was nothing here and I came. We will use collaborative machines and there will be coexistence with free-lancers.
The FabLab of Vigo will be in charge of manufacturing the largest 3D printer in Europe
In his attempt to carry out his idea, the formation of the cooperative, Marco Duran he got in touch with those who today are his two partners, Anselmo Crespo e Iván Martínez. Thanks to them, the cooperative is now known throughout Spain and they can dedicate themselves to what they like the most, give courses and train students in robotics and 3D printing.
The 3D printer they are trying to manufacture will stand out for working with a base that is about two meters long by two meters wide and two meters deep. This printer will be ready to be presented at the European Maker Week, an event that has the collaboration of the European Commission and the Maker Fair in Rome and will be held this year during the week of October 23-29.
