Abstract

The objective of this work is to identify the challenges for the manufacturing of a large part with special focus on the fused modelling deposition (FDM) and to propose one solution for multiple collaborative deposition heads. A trilemma is identified among the build time, the quality and the dimensions of the parts. Current proposals to address this trilemma are evaluated.
