Nowadays, it is hard to think of something that cannot be printed on. Shoes, shirts and even cars, all these items can be branded in a way you desire. The trade fair C!Print in Madrid is dedicated to promotional printing and traditionally has its focus on large scale (2D) printing. This time a large scale 3D printer was showcased as well.
C!Print is known for hosting the largest companies on innovation and personalization of visual communication. It is a creative, bustling market and many classic brands, like Fujifilm, Epson or Canon were present, showing their newest technologies for printing on different materials such as vinyl, PVC, wood or cork.
Lots of beautiful large scale 2D printers are available. However, these new printing technologies are not as exciting as ‘in the old days’. Printers are bigger, for sure. And the choices of usable shapes and materials are increasing. But at the end of the day, a print is still flat design.
In this particular market, 3D printing is yet to be discovered and therefor our partner Papergraphics was very eager to demonstrate the amazing new opportunities that a large scale 3D printer has to offer. With over 35 years of experience in the large format printing industry, Papergraphics sensed perfectly that 3D printed objects are truly unique in this thriving sector. A Tractus3D large scale 3D printer is making it possible.
Papergraphics took the T3000 to demonstrate on C!print in Madrid. This large scale 3D printer can print up to 1.54 meter / 5 feet. (For those who are not familiar with all Tractus3D’ printers; our T3500 can print even up to 2.1 m / 6.9 feet). We can honestly say that all visitors were incredibly impressed by the large scale 3D printer, printing live on the spot, as well as the finalized objects that were shown at the booth.
One of the items that gained a lot of admiration was a mega sized Magnum, the almond flavor to be precise. Imagine how such a large model attracts customers’ attention. Another item that appealed to everyone’s’ imagination was a huge bottle of Garnier Ambre Solaire Delial, created on a large scale 3D printer. When we say huge, we mean a bottle larger than an average person! The bottle is designed with a sample display area and draws the attention directly.
The world is changing, large scale printing is the biggest excitement in the promotional printing industry. Luckily, a sector that is based on imagination and novelties will get a fresh boost of creativity while exploring all new 3D printing possibilities. We can’t wait to see what you create on a large scale 3D printer!
