Press Release // November 13, 2019

Doug Hancock, a 25-year industry veteran, joins Dimensional Innovations as Project Manager and will be dedicated to overseeing projects for The University of Florida/University Athletic Association (UAA).

Part of Dimensional Innovation’s commitment is a new signage and fabrication production facility in Alachua, just 20 minutes from the University of Florida’s campus.

Also joining Dimensional Innovations’ Florida team, Frank Davi has been hired as Account Director and will be in charge of sales and business development for the entire Florida region, focused on clients in the entertainment, corporate, cultural, and healthcare industries.

With a Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, he offers clients a creative and unique viewpoint. Davi will be based in the Orlando area.

Dimensional Innovations currently employs nearly 300 people and has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for the past five years.

FIRST LOOK AT UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY RON TERWILLIGER CENTER FOR STUDENT-ATHLETES

FIRST LOOK AT USNA RON TERWILLIGER CENTER FOR STUDENT-ATHLETES

25 November 2019

An Inside Look at USNA’s Ron Terwilliger Center for Student-Athletes

With the large $20 million dollar project underway, fly-through renderings of the Ron Terwilliger Center for Student-Athletes have been released to the public, courtesy of USNA and Dimensional Innovations. The new facility will become an impressive display of storytelling and technology, educating prospective students on the history, legacy and opportunities of the Naval Academy.

“As simplistic as it sounds, this all started with the vision that one of the most beautiful opportunities to create a facility was overtop the weight room. That space was calling for something of significance,” Chet Gladchuk, athletic director, said. “Over time, the concept was born about sharing the story regarding the importance of the physical mission of the Naval Academy.”

The combination of multimedia, artifacts and information coupled with state-of-the-art athletic facility equipment will set the standard for future universities and colleges across the United States.

Cleveland Clinic Children’s Interactive Motion Wall Improves Lobby Experience

Cleveland Clinic Children’s Interactive Motion Wall Improves Lobby Experience

Cleveland Clinic Children’s hospital management was challenged with creating lobby experiences in their new location that could entertain patients for an extended time, while still feeling flexible enough that a patient could stop at any time when called for their appointment. Dimensional Innovations’ solution was an interactive motion wall that responds to slow movements by the user’s arms and legs to blend blue, red, and yellow colors as if mixing paint and creating a calming distraction.

Kansas-based Dimensional Innovations acquires LSAM 3D printer for ‘secret project’

Kansas-based Dimensional Innovations acquires LSAM 3D printer for ‘secret project’

Dimensional Innovations, a Kansas City-based sign design and fabrication firm, recently acquired a $2.2 million Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) 3D printer by Thermwood. The giant 3D printer—the largest in Kansas City—has a build capacity of 10 x 20 x 5 feet (~3 x 6 x 1.5 meters).

Equipped with a five-axis router, the LSAM machine is capable of printing large-scale objects and parts from reinforced thermoplastic composite materials. There are only a handful of units that have been deployed in the U.S. by Thermwood—one of which is now operational in Kansas City. (Automotive manufacturer Local Motors installed an LSAM system last year.)

Design by fire: Could a Kansas City company 3-D print the Notre Dame spire?

Beyond its status as the biggest in Kansas City, the impact of Dimensional Innovations’ new $2.2 million 3-D printer could reach globally — as the homegrown company considers ways it could help rebuild the historic spire atop the Notre Dame Cathedral, said Nate Borozinski.

“This thing gives us an ability — and we think an advantage — in the entire situation because it’s so versatile,” said Borozinski, Innovation Lab manager at the Overland Park firm who works closely with its large scale additive manufacturing machine known as L-SAM.

The device could closely replicate what was lost in the April fire that tore through the 856-year-old Parisian cathedral, he said.

“We’re not going so far as to say we’re going to redesign [the spire] at this point. We’re saying we can rebuild it in a way that was not there a few weeks ago and we can do it a lot faster than any other method … and it’s a way that less susceptible to fire,” said Borozinski, explaining Dimensional Innovations’ pitch for rebuilding the 300-foot spire through a competition sponsored by the French government.

Designer's Desk: Together by Design

In the modern era, the sports industry is staring at tougher competition than ever before. But just when it seems like attendance might trend downward, somebody in our business finds the right magic and captivates audiences to come and experience again what they have to offer.

To understand what key factors make a winning combination, Dimensional Innovations interviewed 20 of the most influential people in North American professional sports, compiling the insightful and candid themes from those conversations in this article.

The New Normal

As soon as fans arrive at the venue, a second competition begins – the one for their attention spans. Our interviewees generally agreed that we have permanently moved into a new era for how fans participate in live sports.

Yes, they seek additional experiences. Yes, they’re on their mobile devices. And beyond that, they don’t want to physically stay in their seats.

Not surprisingly for millennial fans, this pattern of creating social-focused experiences and moving from place to place closely mirrors their online behaviors. Based on this information, the key question becomes: How do we tap into this cultural shift with its new motivation and energy?

Identifying key revenue boosting opportunities is a smart place to start. What sports executives now look for in a venue is a compelling reason to make people want to travel. We want circulation because it increases the chances guests make additional purchases.

Across the board, in new and renovated venues, fans report enjoyable experiences much more where teams have invested in different zones with different appeal, which is crucial in getting the repeat visit.
