3D Printing Service of Minerals in large scale

We give everyone the opportunity to realize great ideas, using the infinite possibilities of the Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing).
With our innovative technologies, creativity and imagination no longer know the limits of realization, both in shape and size.

ANY GEOMETRIC FORM

With 3D printing it is easy to create complex shapes.
Empty areas, undercuts, curves, corners and cantilevered items; it is even possible to develop parts inside the object.
No more construction difficulties.

LARGE SIZE

Technology, speed and print resolution are optimized for making objects in large size, starting from about half a meter per side up to much more important formats: just think that today we print objects 50 cm high in an hour!

NATURAL MATERIALS

Our technology does not produce processing waste, on the contrary: it allows to reuse the “waste” of stone, marble, sand, …
Valuable materials that are considered quarry waste due to their size are transformed into our raw material.

How does it work?

Imagine without limits

Create a digital file in .stl format:
model your idea or scan the object to be reproduced

.

We print it

We put at your disposal all our skills, tools and professionalism to print and post-produce your idea.

Receive it all over the world

From project to reality:
we bet you can’t wait to touch it!

You have the possibility to go beyond the current limits

Complex shapes, production costs, speed of realization, unique pieces are no longer a problem for your creativity.

INNOVATIVE MATERIALS

Innovation is not just using rock as a printing material, but also using locally sourced materials and natural and environmentally friendly, non-polluting binders.
Marbles, stones, sands, aggregates in granules consolidate thanks to our formulation, of which we have registered the patent, which includes only natural inorganic materials and which can replace the use of Portland cements.

QUICK PROTOTYPING

Switching from the digital model to the real prototype is extremely simple, fast and convenient. It is one of the great advantages of additive manufacturing that allows the creation of objects in scale or in natural dimensions.
Using our technology means having the product in your hands quickly and being able to touch, test and verify.

PRODUCTION OF LIMITED SERIES

We have succeeded in industrializing customization, from today the craftsmanship has the same cost as mass production.
It is no longer necessary to produce large quantities of stocks to implement economies of scale and immobilize capital in warehouses. With our printing technology it is possible to make single objects, small series or large productions and, if required, differentiate the details of individual products without additional costs.

REVERSE ENGINEERING

A digital model suitable for printing can also be obtained through a 3D digital scan: artworks, cultural heritage, archaeological sites, architectural or design elements.
Reproduction is the same as the original in both form and size, useful for replacing damaged pieces and for duplicating, protecting and making more accessible valuable original items.

We can print everything

Our technology has found application in many sectors … and they are constantly increasing!

CORAL REEFS AND BANKS

Reconstructing reefs and local environments for fauna using environmental marine data and specific hydrodynamic processes of the place to protect. The natural materials used and the 3D printing process are highly suitable to shape appropriate forms for fish restocking.

QUANTITIES AND VARIATIONS IN THE SERIES

Thanks to the 3D stone printing process, which begins with a digital design, it is now possible to create series of revolutionary features. Contrary to the molds, the unit cost is no longer affected by the amount of pieces. The prints can have small variations and even be in scale, like these geometric models of Stereographic Projections.

SHOWCASES THAT CAPTURE

The elegance of marble, the naturalness of the stone and the evolution of shapes never seen before capture the attention of people. So 3D printing of stone and customized surface finishes enter the business spaces as a design element and, why not, as the art of setting up shop windows: an example is the design by Architect Andrea Tognon for Jil Sander, in Berlin.

Frequently asked questions

Did we arouse your curiosity?
Please, read the answers to frequently asked questions about 3D mineral printing.

We do not sculpt the rock but we create it layer by layer with a process called additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing. This new production technology generates and adds successive layers of material, gradually giving shape to the object. It differs from the “traditional” production technologies, which work by subtraction from the full.

The additive manufacturing developed, produced and used by Desamanera is a powder waterjet, an indirect 3D printing technology.
On our Youtube channel you will see some videos representative of the printing process.

Our printing process does not use glue or artificial resin. The binder is composed of natural elements which through a chemical/physical reaction bind the grains of stone. These materials cause no pollution, they are eco-friendly and if disposed, they are not classified as special waste.

The scientific authorities we work with certified the characteristics of our printed material as an excellent cement, like the most commonly used cement on the market.
As a further proof, the prints made from the first commissioning of the printer (and the numerous tests, both internal and at the University of Padua) highlight the resistance of the printed mineral to time, wear and typical continental and Mediterranean climatic conditions.

Our technology has been designed and implemented to produce big objects: the prints are completely customizable, from a few dozen cm onwards, with no height limit. Minimum dimensions and thicknesses depend very much on the shape of the object to be made. For this reason, we need the digital model to determine the feasibility of every object.

Our printing technologies allow the use of aggregates: marbles, sands, stones, …
If you want to use a particular type of mineral, tell us: we will evaluate the possibility of testing its performance. Alternatively, tell us about the features you would like to refer to, such as color or a specific aesthetic or performance requirement: our experts will tell you the most suitable Mineral.

In order to print we need a digital file in .stl format depicting the object to be made.
We take care of performing a feasibility analysis before printing, indicating any problems and proposing changes to the file so that the model has the characteristics necessary to be “printable”.

Fill out the contact form or send us an email with the following material:

  1. A digital drawing of the object to be made, preferably in .stl format. If at the moment it is not available, we will be able to start with some images in which shape, dimensions and proportions are clearly visible, from all sides. We remind you that in any case, in order to eventually proceed with printing, you will need a digital file in .stl format.
  2. The description or some images representative of the desired external appearance, for example type of mineral, color, texture (smooth, shiny, rough, …).
  3. Further indications: the print will be subject to stresses, movements, high temperatures, frictions. Sometimes, the overall project description can help us identify any performance need.

With these information we will formulate the feasibility analysis and will contact you within a few days.
