Large-scale 3D printer produces Life-size figure and Ball stand
Shinshu Brave Warriors is a professional basketball team that plays in the B-League B1 West Division.
A life-size figure of Wayne Marshall (211 cm), the tallest player in the team, was created and has been installed at the game site (White Ring, Nagano City). If you visit the game site, please experience the size of the figure up close for yourself.
AC Nagano Parceiro is a soccer club that plays in the J3 League of the Japan Professional Football League.
The new ball stand, featuring mushrooms made by club sponsor HOKUTO Corporation, was created and has been used at the game site (Nagano City: Minami-Nagano Athletic Park) for player entrance and other scenes. Please take a look at the club's original ball stand that holds up the mushrooms and the ball with chopsticks and a fork in front of the pitch, along with the enthusiastic players before the game.
About our 3D printer business
Mimaki is a leading manufacturer of full-color 3D printers that developed the "3DUJ-553," the world's first*1 full-color printer capable of shaping 3D models with over 10 million colors in 2017, utilizing technology cultivated through the development of 2D high-definition inkjet printers for professional use. In 2020, we also released the entry model "3DUJ-2207," a compact, full-color 3D printer that realizes high-definition and space saving.
The 3DUJ series is a full color 3D printer capable of bringing 3D data to life in 3D models with unparalleled color representation and modeling power. We are proud that our 3DUJ series has been adopted by the world's largest 3D printing service providers and is used by customers around the world in fields such as organ models in the medical field, where color, sculptural detail, and accuracy are required, artwork, as well as demonstration models of buildings, their layout, and related landscapes in real estate development.
These large objects announced this time were produced using the large 3D printer "3DGD-1800" in a single color, post-processed, and colored by hand.
