Last week, Magnum Venus Products (MVP), in partnership with the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), installed the first commercially available medium/large-scale thermoset 3-D printer at the DOE’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility in Knoxville, Tenn. ORNL contributed to this project through a DOE Office of Technology Transitions Technology Commercialization Fund project managed by the Advanced Manufacturing Office in DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

According to MVP, the 3-D printer was developed in response to growth in 3-D printing, a market demand for hyper-customization and the need for advanced manufacturing automation.

As MVP explains, while 3-D printers have been around for years, the additive manufacturing industry had needed a cost-effective solution that could print structures and molds. MVP engaged with ORNL to create a 3-D printer capable of printing large-scale thermoset materials.
