There’s been a lot of buzz assembling up around the Israel-based 3D printing company Massivit 3D, who have taken large-scale 3D printing to the following level with their one-of-a-kind innovation and a printing volume of 1200 x 1500 x 1800 mm. Massivit 3D showcased their 3D printing capabilities not long ago by printing a two meter shark for the Silence of the Sharks campaign, a demonstration aacquirest the hunting of these majestically viscous sea creatures. And, while they were occupied assisting to save the sharks, it appears that the 3D printing giant Stratasys had taken notice of Massivit 3D’s large-scale 3D printing innovation (perhaps of the window of Stratasys’ own Israel HQ!).
Massivit 3D has only revealed that they’ve closed an investment with Stratasys, major in an investment round to assist beef up the production and marketing behind Massivit 3D’s innovation. But the the terms of the investment have not yet been disclosed, the funds can reportedly go towards the development, promotion, and deployment of Massivit’s super-sized 3D printing innovation. I’d be caning to wager that Stratasys unquestionably put a lot of skin in the game investment-wise, as the Massivit innovation is one that is truly one-of-a-kind.
Avner Israeli, CEO of Massivit 3D
“The investment by Stratasys, that comes after a comprehensive due diligence process, is a sturdy validation of our one-of-a-kind innovation and sturdy value proposition.” said Massivit CEO Avner Israeli. “We appear forward to Stratasys’ assist in the fulfillment of our vision, which include sharing its operational experience and insights, assisting us expand into new markets and more.”
Stratasys’ assistance should pretty assist Massivit 3D get their large-scale 3D printing solutions off to a running begin, the company has may already created excellent strides with the Massivit 1800 process and Dimengel 3D printing material. The proprietary innovation utilized by Massivit 3D is called Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP), with the Dimengel material becoming a hardened polymer (said by Massivit to be much like to ABS) when exposed to UV light. This innovation does not only assist Massivit print big, it in addition operates at a higher speed (up to 1,000mm/s) than many other large-scale 3D printing devices on the market right now. And, although Massivit stands to benefit excellently of the investment, Stratasys is pretty appearing forward to the exposure that assisting Massivit can bring them, too.
Now that is a Massivit print!
“With Massivit, we acquire exposure to markets and applications in that Stratasys is not active right now such as visual branding, outdoor signage, landscaping and construction,” said Stratasys Vice President of Corporate Development & Ventures Alon Elie. “We are excited of the possible applications of Massivit 3D’s GDP innovation in those markets and others, that we can jointly explore.”
