R&D company Create it REAL, founded in Denmark in 2009, creates 3D printers for other companies on demand using its innovative development platform, which is compatible with FFF and SLA 3D printers. The company specializes in 3D printing, and integrated both an augmented reality feature and the MyMiniFactory 3D library into its REALvision slicing software, which offers end-to-end encryption support to help solve 3D printing copyright issues and secure designers’ intellectual property. As Ghislain Gauthier, the Marketing and Sales Director for Create it REAL, tells us, things at the company have been really accelerating.
Create it REAL recently closed a successful €1.3 million investment financing round, and today has announced newpartnerships with three 3D printer manufacturers and a filament producer.
“We see a lot of 3D printing companies who launch their product in the market and they are quickly caught by the daily issues selling and supporting their customers,” Gauthier told 3DPrint.com. “At some stage some of them do not innovate anymore because of this lack of time and they struggle to catch up. Working with our team can help them to focus where they really add value and expand their business, while we manage the electronic and software evolution with and for them. We build long term partnerships and try to help our partners in many different areas as we know their success will create our success too. We’re on the same boat!”
Five years ago, Create it REAL launched the world’s first real-time processor wholly dedicated to 3D printing, and sells its platform to corporate end-users and manufacturers that are interested in disrupting and driving their industries with 3D printing; they in turn use the platform, with its patent-pending technology, for ad-hoc projects. This technology features a print speed that’s up to five times faster than the FFF 3D printers currently available on the market…good news for the company’s new partners.
Dutch company Rodri is introducing an Eichenberger spindle-driven 3D printer, which was designed to work with technical materials like PEEK, PEI, and PEKK Carbon. The Rodri 3D printer has a heated print bed of 32 x 23 x 25 cm, which can get up to 120°C, and a fully enclosed stainless-steel chassis. It also features a linear motion axis and a hot end that can get up to 400°C.
French manufacturer Dood has launched a robust desktop 3D printer, complete with a heated glass print bed measuring 22 x 19 x 20 cm, color touchscreen, an E3D hot end, and a Bondtech extruder; a full enclosure option is also available.
Finally, Bulgarian engineering company RAST has a new large 3D printer, with a heated glass bed of 36 x 36 x 30 cm that can get up to 130°C, a hot end up to 350°C, and 2.85 mm filaments.
“We are very happy to see these fast-growing companies joining us and make the best out of our technology. This shows us there is a strong demand for high-end electronics, easy to use slicer software and a need to speed up 3D printers,” said Jeremie Pierre Gay, the Founder of Create it REAL. “We share the same vision of the market, where end users should not be afraid of using 3D printing to develop their own business. It should be simple, straightforward and reliable.”
Create it REAL chose these specific partners because their 3D printers provide low maintenance needs and consistent print quality at a good price, appealing for companies that require rapid prototyping and production 3D printers that don’t need much troubleshooting, so they can focus the attention on their customers.
These new 3D printers will soon be available on the manufacturers’ websites, and you can see the Dood and the Rodri 3D printers for yourself at the 3D Print Congress Exhibition in Lyon, France next week.
The company has also teamed up with KIMYA, the new name for 3D filament producer Armor 3D, in a strategic partnership to integrate its filaments as standard options in the Create it REAL slicer.
“We believe this partnership makes a lot of sense for final users: they will access to a wide range of complete packages, including 3D printers and software optimized for our materials,” said Pierre-Antoine Pluvinage, the Business Development Director for KIMYA. “No need to mess around with the settings and the machine, they will get the best 3D printing experience, with high-performance materials optimized for their usage, in a click of a button.”
KIMYA is dedicated to developing new 3D printing materials, like its sustainable PS OWA recycled filaments and more technical filaments, such as KIMYA PEKK Carbon. The latter, designed for highly technical applications, is easy to print, and is abrasion and chemical resistant; it’s also heat resistant up to 260° and flame retardant UL94 V0.
Soon, the settings for KIMYA’s filaments will be available through online updates to all of Create it REAL’s partners.
