Massivit 3D large format 3D printing technology is the result of the combined expertise of experts from both the wide format printing and 3D printing industries.
Traditionally, 3D printers have been based on one of two key technologies: solid materials or photopolymer liquids. Both these technologies have been rendered impractical for commercial production needs due to limitations in speed. Massivit 3D’s co-founder and serial entrepreneur, Gershon Miller, developed an entirely new patented technology, Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP), that enables production at radical speed. The gel can be polymerized, and therefore cures ‘on-the-fly’. This was the birth of the company’s 1st Generation product line and a growing range of more than a hundred applications for a range of industries.
Launched in Q1 2019 and already available in the market, the Massivit 1800 Pro is a large format 3D printer for visual communication and entertainment. It offers unprecedented printing speed and is designed to empower wide format print businesses to expand their services, enter new niche markets, and overcome fierce market competition.
