Size does matter

The main problem with selling advanced equipment - like our client's 3D printer - is its own size. Massive, heavy components are often bulky to carry and might cause some disturbance to people nearby while in use, especially people not used to the variety of sounds made by such equipment (like the CNC machine tools). It is also hard to visualize its true dimensions without asking the buyer to go directly into the company's facilities.

Here's why our client challenged us with creating a fully portable mobile app, that would be useful not only for the company’s representatives but also for customers wishing to familiarize themselves with the 3D printer offered by BigRep. The client prefers using modern technological solutions that correspond with the innovative model and policy conducted by the company.

Work (and showcase) smart, not hard

Thanks to the application potential buyer can locate the printer anywhere, it is thus possible to compare its original size with dimensions of the chosen room in real-time. They can also test key functionalities of the device as well as gain information about additional space needed such as side doors, switches, and other important components.

What's more, augmented reality allows for the display of a wide range of additional content on the mobile device - like pop-up maintenance tips or videos. In this case, we are talking about additional promotional activities that are particularly well-suited for trade fairs and industry events. It becomes much easier to take with you a device with the bespoke AR app installed rather than constantly being worried about the transportation of the original piece of equipment.
