    Hi Guys,

    What is the largest envelope which you can print? Does it depend on the type of material?

    Looking to do some sculpture based on the human form, and would prefer to work life-size.

    Thanks.

    The largest printer has a build area of 660x350x550mm. If you want to go larger than that, you'll have to cut up your model and glue the prints together. That build area is for WSF, which is very porous and easy to glue together.

    Thanks for your helpful reply.
    Can this material be cut, or otherwise shaped afterwards?
    And how does it respond to being painted?

    Thanks and regards.
