Paper-based 3D printing breathes new life and customers into an established Italian reprographics firm
“All of our customers really appreciate the affordable price and full, realistic colour of Mcor’s cutting-edge 3D printing technology. It’s really helped our business.”
-Eugenio Costa, Marketing & Development, Digicopy
Innovation is critical in any business in order to gain and maintain a competitive advantage. But the ability to offer unique products and services that generate new sources of revenue is especially important in today’s reprographics industry.
That’s why, after 20 years offering 2D printing and binding products and services, Italian reprographics firm, Digicopy, decided to expand into the fast-growth 3D printing industry.
“We strongly believe in innovation,” said Eugenio Costa, responsible for Marketing and Development at Digicopy. “We believe 3D printing will enable us to offer entirely new products and services to an expanded customer base and establish ourselves as a market leader.”
Digicopy turned to Mcor Technologies, maker of the world’s only desktop paper-based 3D printers. “We selected Mcor 3D printers because of their professional quality, superior colour capabilities and eco- and office-friendliness compared to other 3D printers,” said Eugenio.
In fact, Digicopy became an Mcor Technologies Certified Reseller and not only sells Mcor 3D printers, they also offer full-service 3D printing and scanning services and even enable their customers to 3D print objects themselves right in the store. “We mainly 3D print models developed by university students for their thesis work – 1,000 students 3D printing a variety of models last month alone – as well as prototypes for designers and stylists, including some famous fashion firms,“ said Eugenio.
Digicopy is expanding. They are now an established group under the name Ethesis srl, running four shops located near each of three Universities in Milan, Cattolica, Bicocca, Statale, and a production centre, close to Bicocca University, in Viale Sarca 173.
Said Eugenio, “All of our customers really appreciate the affordable price and full, realistic colour of Mcor’s cutting-edge 3D printing technology. It’s really helped our business.”

www.miniartista.it is a project that give adults the chance to celebrate their children’s’ creativity and to enjoy a unique, precious and meaningful object: an exclusive creation made by their own “Mini Artista”.
Children’s drawings often leave us speechless. As their comments on the world are explosive, in the same way their little works of art can be really surprising.
www.minimondo3d.com has created a new and pristine way to capture children’s imagination and transform it into reality. The drawing leaps out from the page and becomes a coloured statuette. The magic is called 3D printing.
How does it work?
Visit www.miniartista.it upload a picture of the drawing, order your Mini Arstista and we’ll do the rest!
www.miniartista.it è un progetto per dare la possibilità agli adulti di celebrare la creatività dei propri piccoli e per godere di un oggetto unico, prezioso e pieno di significato per la famiglia: una creazione esclusiva fatta dal proprio Mini Artista.
