Kansas-based Dimensional Innovations acquires LSAM 3D printer for ‘secret project’

Dimensional Innovations, a Kansas City-based sign design and fabrication firm, recently acquired a $2.2 million Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) 3D printer by Thermwood. The giant 3D printer—the largest in Kansas City—has a build capacity of 10 x 20 x 5 feet (~3 x 6 x 1.5 meters).

Equipped with a five-axis router, the LSAM machine is capable of printing large-scale objects and parts from reinforced thermoplastic composite materials. There are only a handful of units that have been deployed in the U.S. by Thermwood—one of which is now operational in Kansas City. (Automotive manufacturer Local Motors installed an LSAM system last year.)
