Israeli 3D printing startup MASSIVit 3D has signed a distribution agreement with Global Graphics to sell its large-format, high-speed MASSIVit 1800 3D printer throughout France. The partnership entails that Global Graphics will market, sell, support and service MASSIVit 1800 3D printers, as well as the company's proprietary Dimengel 3D printing material.
MASSIVit’s supersized 1800 3D printer model boasts a build size of 1.5 x 1.2 x 1.8 m, and thanks to its proprietary 3D printing technique, known as Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP), it can print up to 35 cm per hour (meaning a human-size sculpture could be completed within just five hours). The GPD 3D printing process deposits Dimengel, a non-flammable, proprietary material, which hardens when exposed to UV light. The instant solidification allows for high-speed 3D printing and eliminates the need for support structures.
Global Graphics is a distributor of traditional and digital printing technologies within the French market, with a well-regarded network of customers and several years of experience providing digital printing solutions to the graphic arts and visual communication sectors.
This profile makes Global Graphics an ideal distribution partner for MASSIVit, who designed its ‘super-sized super-fast’ 1800 3D printer specifically for the visual communication and themed environment markets, noting that its speed, cost effectiveness and large size are ideal creating short-run 3D prints of objects for marketing and branding, as well as movie props or event decorations.
The first MASSIVit 1800 3D printer was installed at ES Digital, an Israeli powerhouse specializing in wide format digital printing, visual merchandising, and point-of-sale branding and signage, just a few months ago. To further showcase how its 3D printer can create powerful, large-scale visual messages, MASSIVit has 3D printed an entire Strati car in one piece, as well as a 2-meter-long shark for the Silence of the Sharks anti-hunting campaign.
“As a market innovator, we are looking for great partners with established business in the graphic arts market that can take our solution to potential customers as fast and effective as possible,” said Avner Israeli, CEO of Massivit 3D. "Global Graphics offers a great combination of being well established in the French market while possessing a lot of enthusiasm and the necessary vision to join the 3D revolution."
"We have been highly impressed with Massivit 3D and their innovative solution for the graphic arts and visual communications markets,” added Jean-Pierre Las, President of Global Graphics. “We believe that Massivit's unique solution will provide exciting opportunities to our customers and complement our company vision of strong brands and powerful solutions.”
