RAPID CITY, S.D. (Sept. 27, 2018) – iMakr and B9Creations partnered with O2, one of the largest mobile phone networks in Europe, to deliver an experience unlike any other for the pre-order launch of the new iPhoneXS. Using an Artec 3D scanner and B9Creations 3D printing platform, iMakr and O2 scanned and printed 150 VIP guests live in three locations across the United Kingdom – London, Birmingham and Manchester.
“When O2’s branding agency TCC asked us if we could 3D scan and print 150 people across three locations in one day, we were excited to take on the challenge. We decided to bring in the B9Creations B9 Core 550 enable what is essentially distributed additive manufacturing at a speed that would keep the event flowing in real time. We knew we needed print speed, high precision and dependability to pull this off, and the Core Series delivers on all fronts,” said Eric Savant, CEO of iMakr, the leading reseller of 3D printers located in the United Kingdom and United States.
With a launch focused on personalizing an iconic, global product, the iPhone, to reflect the individual user, 3D scanning and 3D printing guests was a natural fit.

When our channel partner iMakr reached out to collaborate on O2’s iPhoneXS launch, we leapt at the opportunity to power an unforgettable customer experience with our technology,” said Shon Anderson, CEO of B9Creations, a global provider of professional 3D printing solutions.
