Many companies are slowly but gradually moving towards large scale printing. Companies such as NorDan investing in large 3D printers to construct windows & doors and The WASP opening a service center for big size 3D printing. Now, we move onto large formats of 3D printing for the use of winter sports gear for 2018’s Ski Deal Week, which will take place in Sella Ronda, Italy this year.
Ski Deal, a weekend long festival, provides avid skiers and snowboarders with a European winter sport and entertainment experience.
This year’s annual Ski Deal Week, as it usually does, attracts participants of all age groups and because of this, the organisers wanted to become even more innovative by broadening their creative minds to encourage and/or promote customer engagement. Such a task required two European companies, Sismaltalia, Italian advertising agency, and Metropole, French-based company, together with Marie 3D, to produce a range of large 3D printed winter sport accessories.
Massivit 1800 3D Printer
The Massivit 1800 3D Printer successfully printed a model which included oversized goggles, a helmet, life-size snowboard, and its main piece – the “gigantic ski boot” which was featured on social media after many on-lookers decided to try on the boot.
The boot is to be measured about over 7ft tall and was manufactured in just about 38 hours.
One can agree that companies are increasingly grasping the advantage of printing food, devices – accessories on such a large scale.
