When industrial 3D printer manufacturer 3D Platform introduced their flagship printer to the market, it attracted a lot of attention by being much more than just a 3D printer. The 3DP Workbench is an industrial printer with, as its name suggests, a full workbench attached, complete with ample storage in the form of drawers and cabinets, as well as a large workspace. It’s no gimmick either; the printer itself attracted many with its large build area, affordability, and reliability, and according to 3D Platform it’s been selling very well in the six months since its release.
Another feature that makes the 3DP Workbench so attractive is that, unlike most industrial 3D printers, it’s very portable, with wheels and a folding gantry that make it easy to relocate. If you’re ever searching for the ideal road trip industrial 3D printer (and who isn’t?) it’s the 3DP Workbench – and 3D Platform is about to prove it by taking the printer on a cross-country tour dubbed the 3DP Roadshow.
Starting today and rolling out over the next six months, the 3DP Roadshow will travel to dozens of locations throughout the United States, in cooperation with the company’s resellers in each location. The first stop was today in Bloomington, Minnesota, at the site of local reseller MasterGraphics. Next up will be stops in Michigan and Ohio. Anyone involved in manufacturing operations, including design engineers, shop floor managers and front office staff, is welcome to register for an event.
“We are taking the 3DP Workbench on the road,” said John Good, 3D Platform Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “When the 3DP RoadShow rolls into town, we bring live demonstrations of large-format 3D printing, expert tips and tricks, examples of what 3D printing can do for companies, and answers to your 3D printing question. And we can bring it all directly to a customer.”
According to 3D Platform, the major obstacles preventing many business owners from adopting 3D printing are high costs and lack of accessibility – two obstacles that 3D Platform made sure to address with the 3DP Workbench. Representatives at each roadshow stop will demonstrate the capabilities and ease of use of the Workbench, as well as offering expert information and advice about how to implement 3D printing into businesses’ workflow. There will also be prizes, sweepstakes, and, 3D Plaftorm says, “maybe even lunch.”
“By taking the 3DP Workbench on the road, we bring with it critical operational insight to businesses of all sizes,” said Jonathan Schroeder, President of 3D Platform. “Additive manufacturing technology is being adopted rapidly. These local events will give attendees the opportunity to meet and network with other local business owners who are already far along the 3D printing learning curve, as well as those who are considering it.”
Keep an eye on the Roadshow website for forthcoming details on where the company’s Workbench-toting Mercedes Sprinter will be stopping over the next several months. If you’d like the 3DP Roadshow to stop in your town, send an email to marketing@3DPlatform.com. Discuss further in the 3DP Roadshow forum over at 3DPB.com.
