3D Printing Service
Leaders in SLA, SLS, FDM & 3D Colour Printing
3D Printing Services since 1996
Home to two of the largest 3D printers (Neo 800) in the UK, with an impressive build platform of 800 x 800 x 600mm, our 3D printing services include SLA -Stereolithography, SLS – Selective Laser Sintering, FDM – Fused Deposition Modelling and 3D Colour Printing. With our in-house 3D Printing machines, we not only offer a fast turnaround, we are cost-effective and are renown for our quality and standards in finishing.

Delivering Realistic Parts in a Matter of Days
Delivering the very best finishes to your prototype, our finishing team go the extra mile to add realism to your prototype. We offer a variety of finishes including spray painting, chrome plating, flocking, soft-touch paint, hydro-dipping, sealing of SLS to make it water and airtight, and shrink wrap coloured graphics. We offer many finishes and are happy to discuss this in more detail.
Typical Applications Of Our 3D Printing Services
How can we use our 3D printing experience to help you?
The Plastic 3D Printing Technologies We Offer
SLA – Stereolithography
Stereolithography (SLA 3D Printing) is the most widely used 3D Printing / rapid prototyping technology. It is generally considered to provide the greatest accuracy and best surface finish of any prototyping / 3D printing process.
A computer controlled UV laser beam scans across the surface of a vat of photosensitive resin and instantly turns the liquid to a solid wherever the laser has touched it.
SLS – Selective Laser Sintering
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS 3D Printing) is used for the building of functional parts. We utilise a HiQ Sinterstation SLS 3D printing machine which represents the future of instant manufacturing technology. It allows us to produce plastic or metal parts, tooling inserts and casting patterns from your 3D CAD data. This eliminates the need for machining, tooling, casting or any other secondary processes.
3D Colour Printing
One of the latest processes, 3D colour printing is a huge step forward for the design and development sectors as it allows full colour printed parts to be created in a matter of days.
Using a coloured 3D printing machine parts can be built as a single colour engineering model through to multi coloured professional action figures, giving your products that realistic edge.
FDM – Fused Deposition Modelling
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM 3D Printing) uses the same tried and tested thermoplastics found in traditional manufacturing processes, building parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament. This technology allows for tight tolerances, toughness, environmental stability and specialised properties such as electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility and VO flammability.

Simple 3D Printing Costs
Our builds will be organised so that your project is able to utilise an entire machine. This means that parts are built in the shortest amount of time possible. Depending on the size of your project, we may also use multiple machines to spread the load and reduce the build further.
We will organise our builds so that several jobs are built at once with a good balance of efficiency and speed.
Organised so that machines are stacked out for maximum efficiency, this means a longer build time. However, 30% off standard pricing in exchange for a few extra days is often strongly utilised.
