BigRep teams up with Autodesk’s Spark

Posted on in

For us, the New Year started in Las Vegas. There, on 6 January, the Consumer Electronics Show CES in Las Vegas opened the doors. CES is not only a showcase for gadgets of every kind, from autonomous vehicles to wearable electronics. It´s also increasingly important for 3D printing. We took the opportunity to announce our next important step: BigRep is teaming up with Autodesk´s Spark, an open 3D-printing platform.

Spark is a complete, open and free platform for 3D printing that will connect digital information to 3D printers in a new way. It´s objectives are improving information exchange between design software and the printer, optimizing design before production begins and providing open APIs for a broad group of users to access and innovate the 3D printing pipeline.

We at BigRep are absolutely convinced, that simple 3D-printing just won´t be enough in the near future. Instead, we´ll need a complete ecosystem consisting of full scale printers and a cloud-printing service. Not for much longer, BigRep will be connecting thousands of printers globally enabling truly distributed manufacturing and innovative printable materials for industrial and professional use. Adopting Spark is a first but important step for us to realize this vision.

Production ramping up

Posted on in

This summer we moved to our new premises in Berlin-Kreuzberg. At the beginning the spacey loft was empty but quickly it filled up with our fast growing team, and now it is packed with printers, because the production of our brand new model BigRep ONE.2 is in full swing. These days transport boxes are lining up in our premises in Kreuzberg, waiting to be packed with printers and then shipped to our customers all over the world. At this very moment, we are shipping printers to universities, world known software companies, mold makers, foundries, service providers, designers, artists and diverse users in the field of rapid prototyping in Europe, the USA and Asia.

Same, same but different

Posted on in

Life at BigRep in Berlin is back to normal after 3D Printshow in London last week. We had three exciting days with many new contacts and a lot of very positive feedback for our full size printers BigRep ONE and BigRep PRO. We saw dozens of small scale 3D printers – sophisticated technology, sleekly designed machines. It is Impressive, how 3D printing technology is evolving quickly from a small niche only some years ago into a mass market.

One can see that the 3D printing vision is definately becoming reality, whether it is the distributed manufacturing possibilities or the uprising of mass customization through easy to use cloud services.

But on the other hand, somehow you could feel people were pausing and thinking about where this consumer 3D printing revolution will lead us. What will we make out if it? In which direction will the market develop?

We have moved!

A few days ago we unpacked our BigReps, tools, computers and office desks in a light flooded, more than 100 years old loft on Gneisenaustraße 66, in Berlin-Kreuzberg. An ideal location to develop, test and assemble our 3D printers. And there´s still a lot of space for us to grow…
