Papergraphics has sold the UK’s first Massivit 1800 3D printer to graphic production company Stylo, a Watford based display business providing bespoke tailored solutions for retail, interiors, exhibitions, museums and 3D displays.

With the ability to create ultra-large scale objects in a few hours, the system is expected to open up realms of new possibilities to a variety of industries including the entertainment, events, retail, and signage sectors.

According to Simon Olley, managing director at Stylo, 3D printing on such a large scale will dramatically change the way the company does business. “Create, innovate, print is our company vision. We underpin this by investing in the latest technology. 3D printing is an exciting new service we will be able to provide to our existing and new customers.”

Standing at a height of 2.6m and width of 2.4m, Massivit says this is the only 3D printer in the world that enables customers to create bespoke 3D sculptures up to 1.8m high, 1.5m wide, with a depth of up to 1.2m. Couple this with its capability to print up to one foot per hour and it is a technological innovation that will significantly evolve the visual communication market. 

Doug Gilbertson, director at Papergraphics, says: We are at the cusp of the 3D printing revolution as the capabilities of this printer opens up the market to a multitude of industries that previously had limited access. The first sale of the printer to Stylo showcases the agility of the printer and we’re excited to keep working closely with them as we continue to provide after-sale support. It’s an exciting period and we’re proud to be at the forefront alongside Massivit as the printer comes to the shores of the UK and Ireland.”
