3D printing is both a production tool and a creative asset. It’s a great alternative to traditional methods as it allows us to create complex, detailed and cost-efficient volumes.

The sheer scale of our printers allowed us to develop a one of a kind expertise. They can print up to 9 cubic feet, which is roughly the size of a washing machine. We use a process called Additive Printing which consists of heating a plastic filament and layering it on top of the previous layer. This is done successively to create volume.

Besides our printing capabilities, we also provide cutting edge expertise and design consulting that will allow you to elevate your projects even more.

COMPLEXE DESJARDINS

Project : Design and build a giant tree linked to a multimedia show.

Challenge : Find a unique illumination approach.

Our Solution : 3D printing allowed us to have an innovative take on the project : a 34’ tree, entirely 3D printed, translucent, backlit and tied with a multimedia show. No one had ever completed such a task. The tree is also almost 100% recyclable, even the copper wires from the lights can be recycled.

BURNING MAN

Project : Create a large scale bicycle powered replica of Michel de Montaigne’s magician’s ring.

Challenge : For the illusion to work at such a scale, we needed to find the perfect proportions and a way to eliminate the wheel’s spokes to create a floating effect.

Our Solution : After some trial and error and several protypes, the idea of a wheel divided in 12 identical pieces prevailed. Large scale 3D printing allowed us to print each section in a single piece without having to use a casting method.  All the pieces are incredibly light and fit seamlessly into each other.

Without 3D printing, it would have been a lot more complicated to recreate one of the oldest magical illusions.

LUNAR NEW YEAR GAZEBO

Project : Create a themed gazebo to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

Challenge : Create four 3D corner pieces from 2D reference drawings.

Our Solution : 3D digital sculpting provides us with a lot of flexibility to adjust each pieces. That way, each corner piece can be slightly different from the previous one, something that is virtually unattainable with casting. We can print straight from the 3D model, saving tons of time and effort compared to more traditional techniques.

SYNERGY MÉDICAL

Project : Build a 3D version of Synergie Médicale’s logo that can easily be dismantled and put up again.

Challenge : The logo will be used in trade shows and will hang above the company’s booth. The whole kit needs to be extra light in weight.

Our Solution : The hollow shapes are assembled using magnets which makes for a quick, easy, cost efficient and safe assembly.

JAPANESE KOI

Project : Build a large scale Japanese koi fish.

Challenge : The fish needs to be 100% waterproof since it will be displayed in an indoor pond.

Our Solution :  Our base 3D printing material is plastic and by definition waterproof. Using 3D modeling on the computer gives us more leeway to adjust the position and pose of the final product.  It also allows us to easily print sections of the model to test various finishes. 3D printing is a great alternative to more traditional techniques such as fiberglass or casting.

JADE MEDALLIONS

Project : Reproduce a large scale version of traditional jade medallions.

Challenge : Each medallion needs to be as light as possible, without compromising the jade illusion.

Our solution : To achieve the requested lightness, 3D printing was a no brainer. Each medallion is printed in several pieces and then assembled. Artistic painting is then used to complete the jade illusion finish. Without large scale 3D printing, it would have been a lot harder to achieve this translucent effect.

STATUE OF FREEDOM

Project : Recreate the Statue of Freedom that sits atop the Washington Capitol.

Challenge : For logistical reasons, the statue needs to be as light weighted as possible.

Our Solution : 3D printing is an efficient way to get a much lighter result than fiberglass techniques. There’s next to no waste since additive printing uses solely the required material and the final product is 100% recyclable.
