3D springs into life

3D springs into life

FESPA is partnering with non-profit 3D industry initiative, 3DION, to bring the 2D printing and 3D printing industry together at FESPA 2015. As its slogan ‘2D Printing meets 3D Printing’ suggests, visitors will be able to explore the business opportunities of adding 3D to an established print service offering.

It also promises to stretch the imagination of anyone interested in this fast growing phenomenon, with live scanning and printing demonstrations as well as regular presentations.

The 3D Print Showcase, which will be located on Stand A72 in Hall 8, will feature a number of 3DION members that offer a wide range of products and services, including 3D industry leader Stratasys, 3D pioneer 3D Systems, entry-level 3D printer manufacturer Makerbot, and Roland DG, the first 2D print manufacturer to enter the 3D market.

Antonius Koester will demonstrate three different scanning systems addressing different applications, such as art, fashion and textile printing, while will present a workflow with scanning system and graphics tablet. Furthermore, 3DION will feature Adobe, Artec, Botspot, Canto, the Dream Maker Overlord, Voxeljet and its strategic 2D partner Epson.

Sheldon Nazaré of 3DION commented: “The FESPA 3D Print Showcase is a ‘must-see’ for every visitor at FESPA 2015, whether it’s a print company seriously considering the expansion of its service offering, or merely someone curious about 3D printing and the opportunities it represents.”

3DION´s Thomas Meurers added:“The interest in 3D printing we’ve seen in the print community over the past year has been incredible, and thus any forward-looking print company should ensure that they’re up to date with 3D printing and the potential it offers, especially when it comes to prototyping.”

ThomasMeurers will give his popular presentation ‘3D Printing – The Limitations lie in your Fantasy’ on Friday 22nd May at 11.30 in the Education Hub, Hall 8 Stand 890.
