Xaar plc, the world leader in industrial inkjet technology, is delighted to announce its new Xaar 3D Centre in Nottingham, UK.
Massivit 3D Printing Technologies has announced that its customer OMUS has constructed what is believed to be the world’s first 3D printed pop-up retail store on behalf of luxury fashion brand, Louis Vuitton.
Massivit 3D Printing Technologies has announced that sales of its new Massivit 1800 3D Printer have surpassed expectations and are now well into double-figures worldwide.
Inspiring creatives, as well as offering another dimension to print service providers, the ground-breaking 3D printing solution for large format visual communication applications removes the previous time and cost constraints of manual model making. It helps to drive profitable growth for print providers by enabling the production of eye-catching, 3D printed sign & display projects - beyond those that can be achieved with 2D printing devices.
Following its global premier at drupa, the Massivit 1800, which can print models up to 1.8m / 6ft high, has been exhibited with an array of visually-striking models at six tradeshows in four continents. During that time, the system has been installed by customers in each corner of the globe.
Among these customers are:
Australian large format 3D printing company, OMUS, which purchased the Massivit 1800 to meet a growing customer demand for super-size, high-quality visual communications within retail, staging, display, events and architectural design.
“Our experience coupled with the printer’s capabilities will change the print and display landscape and we’ve only just scratched the surface in terms of the possibilities achievable. What’s more, the support and collaboration we’ve received from Massivit 3D to ensure we realise the printer's full potential, has been fantastic,” says Robert Grosso, Co-Owner of OMUS.
UK full-service printing-house, Stylo Graphics, which has deployed the Massivit 1800 to produce eye-catching 3D models for the retail, interior design and hospitality sectors.
“As an early adopter of the technology, we are combining our traditional 2D printing expertise to establish Stylo at the forefront of large-scale 3D printed models,” says Simon Olley, Owner of Stylo Graphics. “Our clients are blown-away with the ability to produce larger-than-life, personalised 3D models. We can now work with them to realise their creative objectives while also propelling our business into exciting new markets.”
Leading Israeli retail brand development company, Heidia, anticipates it will maintain its competitive edge using its Massivit 1800. "This solution will allow us to elevate our traditional 2D POP displays to new levels and we believe that it will be key to unlocking new business opportunities,” says Ofer Gal, Chairman of the Heidia Group. “As a producer of over 85% of the POS campaigns in Israel, we are continually looking at how to stand out from the crowd and we believe that this investment will support that objective."
“The way in which the large format sign and display market has embraced the Massivit 1800, clearly underscores the obvious market opportunity for 3D printed applications,” says Avner Israeli, CEO, Massivit 3D. “Since launching the Massivit 1800 we have doubled the number of our employees and increased our global distributor network, such that there are now more than 20 distributors who are attending to customers worldwide."
Papergraphics, the Barcelona-based wide-format print specialist, has revealed it will bring the Massivit 1800 printer to the C! Print trade event in Madrid next month.
Although still in its infancy, the 3D printing industry is set to grow exponentially. It is forecast to grow from $5.8 billion in 2015 and exceed $50 billion in the next ten years.
Massivit 3D Printing Technologies today announced that it will use drupa 2016 to provide the first public demonstration of the new Massivit 1800 printer.
