3D Daily Show #3: From Micro to Large Format 3D printing
In the 3D Daily Show #3 produced in partnership with Velo3D, we browsed the show’s aisles in search of micro 3D printing solutions as well as large format 3D printers. The technology has evolved so much in the last few years that it is now able to meet multiple industrial needs, regardless of the size of the parts required. Users can manufacture parts on a microscopic scale, but also XXL components for the architecture or construction sectors for example.
In this new 3D Daily Show, we met the manufacturer Massivit. It is a company dedicated to the development of solutions for large format 3D printing. Massivit’s GDP (Gel Dispensing Printing) technology enables fast and cost-effective production of full-scale models and parts for a wide variety of markets. The company will be exhibiting its 10000-G 3D printer at Formnext 2022 for the first time. Avi Cohen, VP of Global Sales at Massivit, tells us more about the features of this large-format solution and the applications it can provide nowadays.
We then spoke with MX3D, a Dutch company that has developed a metal 3D printing process using a robotic arm. This allows it to design large structures, especially in the construction sector – we remember the 3D printed bridge in the city of Amsterdam. Gijs Van Der Velden, CEO and co-founder of MX3D, revealed more details about their technology.
Finally, we end our 3D Daily Show #3 with the Dutch startup Photosynthetic, which has developed a 3D micro-printing process based on a resin process. It can design parts in the micron range, with a speed of 6mm3 / minute. Alexander Kostenko, founder of the startup, told us more!
