Craig M. Miller, President and CEO of Las Vegas- based print business Pictographics, acquired the Massivit 1800 large format 3D printing solution in 2017, enabling him to expand his offering into new markets with tangible results, and to attract more business for his existing 2D printing services due to the inherent hype around this new tech. Miller tells us “Revolutionary, new technology means there’s no ‘going rate’, so you get to name your price, within reason. Because there are few competitors and you are bringing a ‘wow’ factor to the customer.” “…You need to anticipate what your customers are going to want before they know they want it. Introduce them to new things.” says Miller. “I talked to my customers. It was clear that there was a market for 3D in the large format space… The Massivit 1800 is one of the first machines on the market that is truly extraordinary."

Annie Foo, the London based Fashion Footwear and Accessories Designer, has teamed up with leading 3D printing, scanning and design business Europac 3D to manufacture customisable bespoke pieces that fit exactly to an individual’s body shape.  The partnership is a break-through for producing commercially viable, mainstream 3D printed parts for the fashion industry.

Belgium’s 3Motion is known for bringing ideas to life. Now, with their new Massivit 1800 printer, they can bring customers’ ideas to life faster. When the creative agency was challenged to fabricate two giant bottles for BRU, their fast 3D printer let them accept the job and deliver it on time. In this video, 3Motion shows just how fast 3D printing can be with Massivit 3D as they go from designing to 3D printing and installing two 10m (34ft) tall bottles in just two weeks. Watch 3Motion’s video and think which ideas you can bring to life with Massivit 3D.
