The collaboration between Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, and Massivit 3D has resulted in a life-sized, 3D-printed model of a professional female soccer star, which not only celebrates women in sport but illustrates each company’s capabilites in the space of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.
Arkema is sponsoring Gaëtane Thiney, a member of the French team. The soccer player was initially scanned to provide a high-resolution model and the model was then printed by Deko 3D by Sépia on a Massivit 1800. The model has been produced with Massivit 3D’s unique Dimengel printing materials based on Sartomer’s N3xtDimension performance UV-curable, liquid resins. The resulting display is 1.7 metres tall and was 3D printed in just 11 hours.
‘We are excited about our evolving collaboration with Sartomer,’ said Amir Veresh, VP business development and marketing at Massivit 3D. ‘We are adamant that, by leveraging Sartomer’s inherent capabilities and rich know-how, Massivit 3D will be able to further deliver new materials to the market with a significantly faster lead time, introduce fresh applications, and enter new verticals.’
‘Sartomer has been providing tailored support to Massivit 3D through its unique, advanced N3xtDimension range of liquid resins, delivering exceptional freedom of performance design. We support industry innovation at our 3D Printing Center of Excellence where experts create cutting-edge, UV-curable 3D printing resins for ourN3xtDimension range through research and development,’ said Sumeet Jain, global business director for 3D Printing at Sartomer.
3D Printing Solutions by Arkema open up an unlimited array of possibilities for additive manufacturing. ‘This partnership with Massivit 3D illustrates Arkema’s commitment – via its commercial platform 3D Printing solutions by Arkema – to develop a close and strategic cooperation with global key players in order to unlock additive manufacturing industrial capabilities,’ said Guillaume de Crevoisier, global business director at 3D Printing Solutions by Arkema.
