Thermwood’s Vertical Layer Printing Turns AM on Its Side
Vertical Layer Printing (VLP) 3D prints layers perpendicular to the floor, extending Z height to the length of the print bed — as long as 40 feet.

Thermwood’s Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system

Thermwood Hybrid Machine Produces Near-Net-Shape Parts
Rapid 2019: Thermwood’s Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system uses both 3D printing and machining to produce a near-net-shape product.

Tahoe Boats Collaborates with Thermwood on 3D Printing for Boat Design
Thermwood assisted the building of Tahoe Boats’ T16 boat design, using its Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system to custom print necessary tools and patterns. This is the first time 3D printing has been used on an actual boat production at this scale, according to the company.

Thermwood Releases 60-mm Melt Core for Higher Print Rates
Thermwood’s 60-mm melt core can 3D print layers with 250 ft. or longer bead length with most polymers, opening possibilities for the print process because of higher output capability.

3D printing; additive manufacturing

Thermwood and U.S. Navy Complete Validation for AM Marine Program
The validation program centered on printing an unclassified scale nose of a submarine using Thermwood’s Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system.

Thermwood Introduces Vertical Layer Printing
By orienting the layers perpendicular to the build platform, the vertical printing strategy grows large parts along the length of the machine.

3D-printed tool

Boeing Partners with Thermwood on 3D-Printed Tool for 777X
The tool was printed as a single piece from 20 percent carbon fiber-reinforced ABS using the Vertical Layer Print system.
