Gesa Schneider is BigRep’s Sales Channel Manager for the EMEA region.

Nora Toure: Gesa, could you let us know about your background and what brought you to 3D printing in the first place?

Gesa Schneider: Previous to 3D Printing, I worked several years as a brand coach for Adidas and collected some experiences in the best practice and technology company CEB that has been acquired by Gartner. My interest for 3D printing developed after I have learned what possibilities are behind this technology: Especially when it comes to design, it creates completely new opportunities and goes behind the conventional growth of productivity as it is about producing better and smarter products. As I wanted to become part of driving this development forward, I decided to join the large-scale 3D printing startup BigRep at the beginning of 2016.

Nora Toure: What was your very first experience with 3D Printing?

Gesa Schneider: The first experience was a 3D print of a vase. I had to realize that the technology still is very slow but was amazed about creating and printing my very own product in my favorite color and material.

Nora Toure: Could you explain furthermore what BigRep is and the products that you are providing?

Gesa Schneider: BigRep is a large scale 3D printing company. With its 1m3 volume, the BigRep ONE opens the gateway to a new dimension of 3D printing and 3D manufacturing, while the BigRep Studio allows fast and precise large-scale 3D printing. At the last Formnext, the BigRep Pro was launched, a machine for industrial solutions. Whether it’s functional prototypes, composite tooling or end-user products, the PRO delivers, with a range of new features, including a Bosch CNC system, new Metering Extruder Technology that increases printing speed.

Nora Toure: Who are the customers you’re selling the equipment to? And what are they usually manufacturing with your machines?

Gesa Schneider: Customers are industrial companies, universities and architects/artists. Industrial companies are using our 3D printers mainly for prototyping. Universities for research projects or end applications like student motorsport cars. Architect/artists are using the printers to bring their own ideas/project to live, as our 3D printers remove the barriers for innovation.
