MILLE Giant Portable 3D Printer

We took this from idea to physical machine that measures 8ft x 8.5ft x 20ft with a build size of 6ft x 6ft x 11.5ft. It is quite large considering most 3D printers focus on how many inches it could print, our machine measures it in feet!

“With multiple printers at your command you posses power to print a small fleet of vehicles,” says Tran.

The idea is a marvelous one; one which could dramatically increase the mobility of 3D printing, while also greatly reducing the production costs associated with the machines themselves. There has been a lot made about the feasibility of large 3D printers. The idea is a good one, but when reality kicks in, very few people have a place to store and/or operate machines of such large scale. The potential of turning these shipping containers into printers themselves, could kill several birds with one stone. Conceivably a container could be stored in one’s backyard, garage, or driveway. They could be stacked, decorated, and customized however a user would like.


With some design magic we created a new logo to represent “MILLE”


Design evolves.. Here is the design we settled on for our T-Shirt.



“Shipping containers offer a super rigid frame,” Tran tells us. “When you start building a large machine, one of the largest costs is the frame. The Mille solves this with its design and uses a watertight weather proof shipping container hull. 3D printer hardware bolts directly to the steel walls. Shipping containers offer standard interior and exterior sizes so virtually any container can be retrofitted.”
