The NVBOTS team has been very insightful about how to run their business–and not only is it paying off for them, it’s paying off for thousands of students so far who have been introduced to and are gaining a skill set in digital design and 3D printing, thanks to the Boston-based 3D printer manufacturer’s vision.
A veritable whirlwind in the education sector, we’ve followed countless stories regarding NVBOTS from their first endeavors to begin full-volume manufacturing of their NVPro, the first fully-automated 3D printer, with the crowdfunding campaign that began their journey, to offering innovative 3D printing curricula to schools, as well as introducing their NVLibrary, and ongoing new 3D content.
All of this and more has given them a solid footing within the 3D printing industry, but more so, the NVBOTS way is immersing students in valuable STEM education skills, which are much sought after and will be much valued for graduates entering the job market.
All of the energy and momentum that NVBOTS has been putting into schools and creation of new products has gained them the attention of substantial other businesses along the way–like Staples.
“Essentially, there are three steps to the innovation process, which include education, innovation and commercialization,” said NVBOTS CEO AJ Perez. “NVBOTS has been focused on educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, designers and inventors on design for 3D printing, which is why we have been catering to schools and universities. Next comes innovation, with more and more people understanding how to leverage 3D printing in their businesses, which ultimately leads to commercialization.”
“By providing what is essentially an ‘automated factory in a box’, we are making it easy for companies to rapidly prototype new products and commercialize innovative ideas faster than ever before.”
With both the quality and incredibly user-friendly experience associated with the NVPro, the 3D printer has begun attracting exactly the amount of attention one would expect–from larger corporations. Easy to use and easy to share, the NVPro is famous for being an ‘end-to-end 3D printing solution with automated part removal.’ It offers the ability to run continuously from any device, thanks to its cloud-based interface.
“With 3D printing, companies are able to make more sophisticated parts and enhance products in ways never before thought possible,” added Perez. “NVBOTS is excited to lead the charge in this area, as we give businesses of all sizes the capabilities needed to capitalize on their next big idea.”
Staples uses the NVPro in research and development, making use of all the true benefits 3D printing–and the NVPro–have to offer for fast, reliable prototyping. They are able to design early stage 3D models for items they are famous for like phone chargers and a variety of supplies for the office.
“The NVPro is ideal for businesses such as ours,” said Staples Director of Design and Innovation Dan Reilly. “It has the capability to run 24/7, is cloud connected, has automated part removal and a print queue, and offers video monitoring so you can confirm it’s running and check the status of parts being printed. This allows the team the freedom to work on multiple projects and collaborate with international counterparts, as the traditional wait time for 3D printed products is not conducive to a regular work schedule.”
NVBOTS provides certified filament, full-service user support, and guidance regarding all of their products. Founded by MIT graduate AJ Perez, the company’s mission is to provide accessibility to 3D printing along with high quality and a host of innovative features, a user-friendly platform, and affordability.
