RapidPro 2018 Veldhoven
Last week, we participated at RapidPro 2018 in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. We were extremely excited to participate in this event. RapidPro lasted for 2 days, March 7th and 8th, and over 2600 visitors and 82 exhibitors visited the event. The focus this year was mainly on prototyping, (low volume) production and product development. The main focus, in terms of industries, was the manufacturing industry, the medical industry, transport, logistics, construction, and architecture. Below, you can see some snippets from setting up our stand at RapidPro 2018.
RapidPro is a very important event, especially, in the Benelux area and it is a way to see and experience all phases of 3D printing. This can be creating a concept and then making a prototype, developing a product, customization, rapid production, etc. Furthermore, national and international speakers talked about the democratization of product design, opportunities for 3D printing in high-tech equipment, how to apply 3D printing in your company, and the real value of additive manufacturing.
The event was open to everyone and the registration was free. There was a wide variety of visitors from children to 3D printing experts so there was something to see and experience for almost everyone no matter the age or the 3D printing experience.
We were present at booth 68, where we displayed two of our Bolt Pro 3D printers which were printing our new 3D prints. Visitors could also see some already made 3D prints which especially showcased our variety of filaments as well as 3D applications. Consequently, this makes our products easier to relate to users and easier to apply in a variety of industries.
Our 3D printing experts showed the visitors how our printers work, and what 3D prints are currently printed. They also gave them insight into how a 3D printer can benefit their business. Our team was available for any questions visitors might have had and there were also various brochures ready, which provided more in-depth information about our products and 3D printing application possibilities.

On the second day of RapidPro, March 8th, we announced our Leapfrog Creatr give-away winner. Few days beforehand, we posted the giveaway announcement on our social media channels. We received an overwhelmingly positive response from our followers. On March 8th, at 3PM, we announced the winner at our booth, which was @makerspace.online. Makerspace.online is very passionate about 3D printing and designing. Furthermore, he loves to share his designs on his Instagram (@makerspace.online) and YouTube (MakerSpaceOnline) channels. He gathered quite a following and we wish him happy printing with his new 3D printer addition!
