3D Platform (3DP), a global leader in manufacturing large-format, industrial-strength 3D printers, continues to make stops and add new events to its much anticipated 3DP Roadshow Van Tour.
As demand for 3D printers has increased, so has the competition to bring top performing machines to market. The 3DP Roadshow offers a unique opportunity for anyone interested in large format 3D printing to get up close and hands-on. This on-site partnership of sales professional, machine technician, and 3D printers helps to generate enthusiasm and demonstrate the possibilities of large format additive manufacturing. Since the Roadshow’s launch in 2016, the tour has traversed over 85,000 miles and engaged crowds in over 266 demo events, giving testament to the durability of these machines. Events have included OEM and educational visits, open houses, and trade shows.
After the 3DP tour van has arrived for the scheduled event, organizers and participants can expect a quick printer roll-out and 30-minute set-up. Each demonstration begins with a brief introduction followed by the 3D printer demonstration. During this informal demo, visitors can familiarize themselves with the Workbench 300 Series as well as examine the intricacies of HFA extruder and filament systems.
“We had an awesome week of 3D printing on the 3DP RoadShow! … We featured 3D Platform’s incredible large-format 3D printer Workbench with live demos, amazing samples, and all things 3D!”
An experienced technician is available to discuss the proper steps to test, calibrate, and print, as well as options for post-processing and finishes. This informal setting allows for in-depth questions on potential uses related to 3D printing. Throughout each event, audiences have an opportunity to access a variety of 3D printed samples including a motorcycle gas tank, full-size concept chair, tooling fixtures, and other items that function in a variety of applications.

The Mobile 3D Printer is currently meeting up with resellers and their base in the Texas area, with plans mapped out for the cities of Houston, Dallas, Austin, up to the Kansas City area, and then back home to Northern Illinois. In future months, the Roadshow will again be hitting the road around the old US of A.
