EUMAKERS is a newly established branch of Rigenera Biocompound, a leader in the plastics sector. The company was founded in early 2014 and aims to become a leader in Italy and Europe for the production and marketing of filaments for 3D printing. Eumakers, started in early 2014, produces high quality 3D printing filaments, providing also 3D printers, 3D scanners and all the related printing services.

 

1. Which are the biggest challenges you face as a 3D printing filament manufacturer?
“We aim to create a wide network of distributors, in order to guarantee a capillary presence in the market. This, together with the creation of ready-to-use materials, is the best guarantee for our customers to receive, in the faster way possible, high-quality products with high-quality support service. We tested this method, during our first two years of commercial activity, in Italy and then in Europe, reaching the number of +150 official resellers. Currently, we’re working to extend this network outside the EU as well.”

2. How has your business evolved over the last 3 years and how much do you expect the market to keep growing?
“Over the last 3 years, we have doubled our catalog (becoming the manufacturer with the largest range of colors among PLA filaments) as well as our sales/year. It’s really difficult to forecast how the market will change because it is strictly connected with the evolutions of the technology. However, we believe that the largest increases will be connected to education and industrial sector (especially, medical and automotive).”

3. Who are your biggest customers: consumers, education sector, professional sector (designers/architects/researchers) or manufacturing sector?


4. Which are the materials you sell most of?


5. What do you think needs to happen in order for 3D printing (both desktop and professional) to become more widely adopted?
“Basically, this technology has to become easy-to-use. Discussing a “wide diffusion” does mean talking about consumer diffusion. When a 3D printer will become as commonplace as a microwave oven, everybody will use them, letting this technology become a -real- industrial revolution.”
