Thermwood lsam has been The market and technology leader in LFAM since 2016

Since 2016, Thermwood has proudly established itself as the unrivaled leader in Large Format Additive Manufacturing (LFAM). Our groundbreaking LSAM (Large Scale Additive Manufacturing) systems have revolutionized the industry, setting new standards for market dominance and technological innovation.

We offer the broadest range of LFAM systems in the industry, to help you find the perfect solution for your needs and budget. But LSAM systems are more than just 3D printers - they're real production systems, capable of producing industrial fixtures, molds (including high temp), tooling, foundry patterns, prototypes and end products from a wide variety of both low and high temp materials.

𝗔 𝗳𝗲𝘄 𝗟𝗦𝗔𝗠 𝗮𝗱𝘃𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗲𝘀:
• LSAM systems offer three printing orientations - HLP (Horizontal Layer Printing), VLP (Vertical Layer Printing), allowing parts to be printed that are as long as the machine table and ALP (Angle Layer Printing), the ability to print at a 45 degree angle.
• With the fastest print heads in the industry, our LSAM systems can print at speeds from up to 200lbs per hours to over 500 lbs per hour.
• Choose from Print-only or Print-and-Trim combinations with table sizes ranging from 5’x5’ to 15’x40’ and beyond.
• Save both time and money over traditional methods - case study here:

𝗦𝗲𝗲 𝘂𝘀 𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲:
We will next be printing LIVE at IMTS 2024 in Chicago, IL (booth #433103) starting on September 9th with an LSAM AP 510 - visit us to learn more about LSAM, or you can always contact us directly to arrange a personal demonstration at our corporate headquarters.

Don't settle for less when it comes to your production process. Upgrade to Thermwood's LSAM system and take your manufacturing to the next level! Visit to learn more about LSAM.

Thermwood Adds a Third Print Option to LSAM

LSAM systems currently can print both horizontal and vertical layers if equipped with the Vertical Layer Print (VLP) option, available on most Thermwood LSAM machines. This new addition adds Angle Layer Printing (ALP) to the VLP option. Angle Layer Printing is the ability to print at a 45 degree angle. More Info on Angle Layer Printing here.


Introducing the LSAM Additive Printer

In response to requests for a somewhat smaller, lower cost additive system which still has all the features and print quality of the large flagship LSAM systems, Thermwood has developed and is now offering a line of “print only” machines. 

Thermwood & General Atomics Save $50K by partnering on Additive Tool

Thermwood recently collaborated with General Atomics to produce a CNC trim tool with a significant cost savings of around $50,000 when compared to traditional methods.
