3D Printing – Prototypes and Parts

3D Printing is the process of making a physical object from a digital model.  In short, it is a method by which almost any three-dimensional object can be created from a digital CAD model of virtually any shape.  Unlike “subtractive” manufacturing, where the object is created by removing material from a solid block, “additive” manufacturing, or 3D technology to use its umbrella term, uses the process of depositing many thin layers of material, in succession, to create different shapes.

This unique method allows for highly complex geometrics which are often impossible with other methods of manufacturing.  3D Printing therefore lends itself ideally to the creation of objects that require high detail, such as prototypes or end-use parts.   3D Printing offers many advantages over other methods of manufacturing, including greater accuracy and fewer errors, meaning highly precise parts or objects can be created every time.

We are able to print your 3D prototypes or small quantity products.  Please get in touch to learn more.
