Size does matter

Do you recognise the feeling of frustration when you get all enthusiastic about 3D printing a sculpture in a large size and then realise it can’t be done in one go? Massivit 3D Printing Technologies Ltd. offer a 3D printing technology that allows the printing of objects up to 180 centimetres in height, 150 cm width, and 120 cm deep.

The Massivit 1800 3D printer was first demonstrated at drupa 2016. An extra plus of the technique behind this 3D printer is that the sculptures printed in this size are lightweight. Avner Israeli, CEO at Massivit, clearly sees the benefits of lightweight, life-size 3D printed objects for use in marketing campaigns and as eye-catchers in shop windows.

In a recent interview with VDMA, the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association, Mr Israeli explains both the philosophy and technique behind the large format 3D printing, which is Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology. “Thus it is by far the fastest technology in 3D printing,” Mr Israeli tells. “As a super-fast large format 3D printer, our recently launched Massivit 1800 3D printer, is aimed at large format print providers and sign & display businesses.”

From 2D to 3D print
Mr Israeli has also given thought to 2D print shops and how they can transform their business to the third dimension: “For the owners of large format print and sign businesses, we’re offering the opportunity to potentially unlock the door to new business in the third dimension.”
