Applications How-To




Helpful and practical tips and video tutorials to help you get the best results with your Massivit 3D large format applications for visual communication.

Basic Finishing Procedures

The Massivit 1800 3D printer produces large scale, light weight and hollow objects that are used for creating eye-catching visual communications. The following guide is designed to assist Massivit 1800 3D printer owners and operators in preparing the model for the next stages of painting or coating.


The specific operations that are covered in this application note are:

  • Post-print cleaning of the model, such as the removal of brim and support structures
  • Fixing slight printing imperfections and filling holes
  • Attaching parts of a model together using best practices

    Strengthening Models

    The Massivit 1800 3D printer produces large scale, light weight and hollow objects that often require more strength and durability at end-use. The following document is designed to assist Massivit 1800 3D printer owners and operators to enhance the strength and durability of their Massivit printed objects with Polyurethane foam.


    Expanding polyurethane foam is easy to use and becomes rigid and strong after curing. It can be used as a lightweight filling material to give hollow 3D printed objects additional strength and durability.

    Channel Letters

    This document explains the process of creating illuminated signage, also known as Channel Letters. Channel Letters are one of the most common applications in the market of signage and display. Current analogue methods of manufacturing, by bending aluminum or Plexiglas, require a lot of manual work, lack precision and have a limited range of shapes.


    Using Massivit 3D printing solutions is an innovative way to produce eye-catching, illuminated signage.

    Projection Mapping

    If you are looking for an innovative way to inspire and captivate your audience and consumers, projection mapping is a great way to animate your 3D printed displays by enhancing their texture, color and motion. The advantage of printing in 3D for this purpose is that UV maps can be created from the original 3D file of the model. Once your Massivit 3D model is printed, you can complete your projection mapping process in just a few simple steps.


    Projection mapping is an innovative method for projecting a video onto a 3D object with precision. The method uses the same 3D information that is used for printing, to project an image onto that printed shape. The difficulty associated with projection mapping arises when trying to perfectly align a 2D movie with a 3D object. This problem is aggravated further when the 3D object is complex, where it may be almost impossible to have any alignment take place.


    An ideal solution to this challenge is to design and print your model digitally as you can utilize the 3D object’s digital information in order to achieve perfect alignment between the video map and the model as well as calculate any inherent distortion.



    This step-by-step guide will help you create your own projection mapping using the digital information from the 3D file.
