High performance, functionally integrated, multi-functional and resource-friendly – in the field of large-scale 3D printing it is less about the hardware and software but more about the materials used and the resulting applications that have the greatest development potential. This is why BigRep, developer and manufacturer of the world’s largest serial 3D printer, has recently brought on board Jörg Petri and Daniel Büning, two renowned pioneers in disruptive digital technologies from the interdisciplinary design studio NOWlab. Under the name of NOWlab@BigRep, Petri and Büning are now responsible for innovation in materials and applied research to develop cross-sector customized applications at the Berlin based tech start-up.
“With NOWlab@BigRep we can utilize our many years of experience in research, development and design in using new, generative manufacturing methods. The additive manufacturing is only at the beginning of its development – we’re therefore delighted that this technology can now be actively pursued with our partners from industry and academia to jointly develop relevant application scenarios. We understand our business as “New Digital Craft”, says Jörg Petri, Director of Innovation& Applications at BigRep.
