3D Printing Hits Home Run for Printhpole
Korean fashion brand F&F turned to Printhpole’s 3D printing expertise to produce a stunning POP display for MLB that knocked the competition out of the park.
The Korean industrial equipment trading company and total finishing solutions provider created a larger-than-life baseball player on its Massivit 1800 3D printer. The elegant figure, measuring 8.5ft high (2.6m) and weighing 10.5kg, exemplifies how retailers can provide a more entertaining and engaging shopping experience by connecting consumers to their passions. It took just 13 hours to print and was finished in Candy Paint.
Previously, F&F worked with a conventional mannequin provider who recommended large format 3D printing as a way to meet their very tight deadline.
F&F was delighted the time-frame was adhered to and that a high-quality finish was achieved in time to incorporate their specific design and color requirements.
The space planning team at F&F stated: “It is the first time we have worked with Massivit 3D printing and the result is far better than we expected. We loved the high quality and how this technology supported design and finishing flexibility. Also, we were very happy to be able to meet the project’s very tight time schedule. We look forward to having more projects with Printhpole and Massivit 3D printing in our other stores and brand advertisement-related jobs.”
