Global 3D printing pioneer appoints Intelligent Conversation

NASDAQ-listed client win grows our B2B offering

We are pleased to announce we have been appointed by Nasdaq-listed Materialise – a leading provider of 3D printing software and additive manufacturing solutions – to run a series of technical campaigns to help it broaden perceptions of the technology.

Materialise combines the largest group of software developers in the industry with one of the largest 3D printing facilities in the world. This has enabled them to drive forward the 3D printing sector and deliver world firsts such as:

  • developing accurate 3D printed models to enable surgeons at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to transplant an adult kidney into a two-year-old child
  • working with Toyota to develop a revolutionary lightweight car seat prototype
  • co-creating with ATOS a 3D-printed titanium insert for the aerospace industry. Weighing 43 per cent less than a conventional part, the component helps to reduce the cost of space transportation as it costs $20,000 to send every kilogram of equipment into space.

We will be working with Materialise’s marketing teams in the UK and Belgium to deliver multi-faceted content to support themed customer campaigns. We will also support the company with strategic messaging, media relations and events.

Natalie Simpson, Materialise UK Marketing Manager, said: “3D printing is often still seen as an impressive innovation, rather than a mature manufacturing technique. As one of the foremost pioneers of the technology, we want to encourage, inspire and help audiences understand the practical advantages that 3D printing has to offer right now, not just in the future.”

Materialise incorporates more than 25 years of 3D printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D printing services, which together form the backbone of 3D printing technologies.

Materialise’s open and flexible solutions enable players in a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, automotive, aerospace, art and design, and consumer goods, to build innovative 3D printing applications that aim to make the world a better and healthier place.
