Israeli start-up, Massivit 3D Printing Technologies has announced the first installation of its ‘super-sized’ 3D printer, designed to transform the way special marketing, advertising and themed environments are created.
The Massivit 1800 is a super fast 3D printer with output speeds unlike anything else in the industry. The machine can print objects up to 1.8m high at a speed of up to 35cm per hour. This means that something like a 5ft life-size print of a person could only take around 5 hours to produce.
The machine utilises a unique Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology which deposits a special printing gel and is then cured by UV light. The speed of the print and curing engine allows for instant solidification. With its unique software developments, Massivit 3D has also developed techniques that allow printing of non-vertical walls and ceilings without the need for support structures.
Gershon Miller, one of Massivit founders says, “In developing Massivit 1800 we had to reinvent 3D printing, we had to invent a whole new technology – the GDP: Gel Dispensing Printing. The result is a 3D printer with remarkable performance, stunning design, and some of the most
advanced 3D printing algorithms in the market enabling very fast and very economical printing, saving on printing material and printing time of superfluous support structures.”
The first Massivit 1800 system was installed at E.S. Digital in Israel, a large print and digital communications provider. Eyal Shemesh E.S. Digital CEO, commented: “We are delighted and excited to own the Massivit 1800. We have great plans for this printer, and many of our customers are already awaiting this solution that will enable them to create unique, stunning promotional campaign in all kind of formats – from unique point of purchase displays all the way to amazing launch events. With the Massivit 1800 we can now offer our customers more ways to grab attention, call for engagement and make their marketing campaigns attractive & entertaining – we can add another dimension to marketing.”
