They can hold between 2,000 to 4,000 depending on the size.

I didn't know AntsCanada made 3d printed nests.

All the nests are 3D printed except for the Formica Hyrbid Nest 2.0.

The smaller hybrid nests hold 500-1,000 workers
The Omni nest small holds about 20,000 workers
The Omni nest large holds about 30,000 workers
The Omni nest Xtra large holds over 100,000 workers. No wonder it's 200 dollars!
