3D Printing for Scenic Fabrication & Entertainment
CUT PROP PRODUCTION TIME BY HALF
For large-volume, complex scenic props and displays, there’s nothing like Massivit 3D printing solutions.
FABRICATE AMUSEMENT PARK PROPS OR THEATER SETS IN NO TIME
Large format 3D printing empowers you to create giant, stunning props and scenic displays in a fraction of the time of every other creative construction technology. Dramatically speed up your core model production for stage building, theatre sets, and theme park props so that you can focus on an ultra-creative finish, paint work, texture, or animatronics. Complex shapes and undercuts are no longer an issue. Massivit 3D’s Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) supports any type of artistic finish – from a scaly dinosaur skin to shiny, smooth surfaces. Fabricate giant parts up to 6ft tall (1.8m) in one print.
“For 15 years, we have dreamed of a day when a printer would provide super-large scale, speed, and build strength at low print costs, in equal measure. The Massivit 1800 has delivered this for us.”
– Sir Richard Taylor, Founder, Weta Workshop
