Considerations when making large 3D prints

      My boss told me that we’d need to get a Formlabs Form 3l Sla 3d Printer for creating large 3D prints (the size of an adult man) for creating prosthetic limbs. As I’m not a techie person myself and is not from any of the related fields, I was wondering about some important considerations when making large 3D prints? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      definitely consideration will need to be put to the means of supporting the print depending on how large it is going to be, as the larger it gets the heavier it will rapidly get. most would counter this by hollowing but depending on how strong you need the prosthetic to be this might not be viable. The rule of thumb is as the surface area increases the weight will increase by that number cubed.
