3D Printing

Our Ultimaker 3 3D Printer enables us to utilise innovative technology to offer a high-quality prototyping service for existing and new customers, as well as start up projects. We are able to produce complex yet functional shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods.

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes.

In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

Ultimaker 3D Printer

The Ultimaker 3 3D Printer combines a high level of design complexity and freedom with a wide material portfolio, specially formulated to create industrial grade prints.

The Ultimaker 3 Extended works alongside the market leading Ultimaker Cura software which features the optimal preconfigured settings for Ultimaker printers and materials.

We also utilise Solidworks 3D modelling software to finalise production design from drawings, sketches or samples. We have the software capability to work with file formats including STEP, IGES, DXF, Photoshop (.psd) Illustrator (.ai), Solidworks part, (.sldprt), Solidworks assembly (.sldasm) & Solidworks drawing (,slddrw).

The fully integrated system of hardware, software and materials ensures that we can deliver the entire professional 3D printing service.
