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.
