3-D printer maker gets investment from Stratasys

Feb. 24, 2016

Massivit 3D Printing Technologies Ltd., Lod, Israel, has received an investment from 3-D printer manufacturing behemoth Stratasys Ltd., Eden Prairie, Minn., which it will use to continue developing its proprietary large-format, higher speed technology.

The terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Massivit's technology is based on Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP), which is proprietary to the company. The technology is geared for printing large objects such as items used in advertising, theme parks and decorations.

For example, the company says it would take only five hours to print a simple sculpture of a full-sized human being while simultaneously printing another object.

The polymer material Massivit uses solidifies and hardens once it is exposed to UV light.
