Dario Negrelli Pizzigoni – TreeD Filament

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

TreeD Filaments, founded by polymer industry veteran Dario Negrelli Pizzigoni, strives to create filaments that are the easiest to print while achieving the new standard in performance. To reach this result the company’s team put all their passion and know how in the filaments production, giving the most reliable and efficient filaments on the market. Every single compound of materials is accurately tested in the factory, made ready to be printed with the majority of printers out there. The use of first choice raw materials gives the best repeatability in 3D printing, time over time, spool over spool.

1. Which are the biggest challenges you face as a 3D printing filament manufacturer?
“I faced a lot of challenges but most of all making people understand the benefits of using plastics specifically for 3D printing. Many think 3D printing is same as traditional technologies, such as injection molding: 3D is not the same. We made a guide to explain this but people don’t like read, so they continue to ask us the same things.”

2. How has your business evolved over the last 3 years and how much do you expect the market to keep growing?
“When we started to build our technology, the market was too young but this year we are beginning to get some  satisfaction, as the market is finally coming of age, for us and for our filaments too.”

3. Who are your biggest customers: consumers, education sector, professional sector (designers/architects/researchers) or manufacturing sector?
“Our Customers are all in the industrial manufacturing and professional sectors, all others only represent a very small quantity. Consumer and educational customers are serviced by our resellers. Technical and professional industry customers are generally our direct customers.”

4. Which are the POLYMERS you sell most of?
“I can tell you off the bat that PLA represents about 3% and ABS represents 8% of all the polymerswe sell. For the others, it is very difficult since we’ve more than 25 polymers in our portfolio. I need a lot more time to give you the exact numbers for all our polymers, sorry.”

5. What do you think needs to happen in order for 3D printing (both desktop and professional) to become more widely adopted?
“Good question. The 3D market is young and fast, but technical and commercial dynamics are always the same, for all kinds of markets. More time must pass to give you a correct answer. Many things have changed during the last two years, a better definition of the markets is coming, desktop and professional, general market and more defined sectors of application. Educational can be the key, a new generation of people that use 3D printers as a standard technology, safety and repeatable. The market is too chaotic at this moment to do make choice, safety and repeatable. Today only special markets, like dental, and jewelry, have defined specific polymers and printers.”
