Massivit 3D has released the Massivit 1500 Exploration 3D printer. The 1500 is a large format 3D printer catering to 3D print providers producing signage or other large structures.
“The Massivit 1500 Exploration 3D Printer leverages unique, patented Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology that produces super-size, lightweight, hollow models and displays, requiring little to no support structures, meaning reduced time, cost, and waste and allow for total geometric freedom.”
Large format 3D printing in tighter spaces
The 1500 is available now and is the first 3D printer released by Massivit since they launched their flagship Massivit 1800 3D printer in 2016.
The 1500 is designed for 3D printers with limited vertical space. It features a smaller printing height and volume of 145x117x147cm compared to the 145x117x180cm of the 1800. Massivit says the 1500 can produce lightweight hollow models that can be assembled to make “any size model or display.”
Massivit’s GDP 3D printing uses a proprietary photo polymeric gel, Dimengel, that quickly hardens and cures when exposed to UV light. Dimengel’s rapid curing enables the fast printing speeds of the 1500 and 1800 3D printers, whilst its high viscosity means that non-vertical parts can be printed without support structures.
“The Massivit 1500 builds on the incredible global success of our flagship Massivit 1800 and further cements our position as a frontrunner of innovative solutions for next generation visual communication” said Massivit 3D CEO, Avner Israeli.
Massivit will demonstrate the 1500 at the ISA Sign Expo in Orlando, March 22-24, and at FESPA Berlin, May 15-18.
