With over 10 years’ experience in the fields of 3D printing technology, Design, CAD Modeling, Product Development and file prepping/fixing for 3D Printing, we are in a unique position to consult on almost every aspect of these processes. Creating the geometry is as important as deciding on which type of 3D printing technology to pick for your specific product. Our background can help you make sure that you select the right design process and 3D printing technology to realize your vision. Below is a brief description on what we offer.
Buying your first 3D printer can be a difficult task as the technology is evolving quickly and hundreds of new printers are released each year. The technology is expensive but it is getting more cost effective by the day which means options are getting bigger too.
Design for 3D Printing
Optimizing your design for the 3D printing process can be difficult as you need to not only understand 3D printing and the exciting new directions you can push your design but also know the technology ad the specific printers capabilities and restrictions. This will allow you to design something that will not only completely utilize all the technologies added benefits but create a cost effective model that will print perfectly.
CAD Packages & Training
With thousands of different CAD packages available all at various prices and with various capabilities it is difficult to determine which package to use for your task at hand or perhaps career ahead, certain industries favour some packages but all in all to really know which one is the right one for you it is vital to speak to the users of these packages and get an idea what would work best. We have experience with quite a few of the more commercially used packages and specialize in a few of them, sometimes it’s more than just can the package do what i need, price, learning curve and accessibility also plays a role. Let us help you look at what you need. Training on these is the same, we offer a few courses and know what it means to get easy to use training at a good price that you can actually apply to what you do. If you are a lecturer trying to implement a package, we can also advise you on how to do that within your course, learning basics in a two day course is one thing, but applying what you have learned of a year is where it makes it’s difference!
Digital Sculpting for Additive & Subtractive Manufacturing
With years of experience creating digital sculpts for either 3D Printing or Robotic Milling we can give good advice on what to look out for and how to get a perfect model for these processes!
Prepping and fixing files for 3D printing
Struggling with unprintable files? We can help show you what the issues are and how to avoid the, unprintable files are a costly thing to fix and get them print ready so take some time and get to know why they don’t want to print. If you don’t have the time, send them to us and we will help fix them for you.
Product Development & Manufacturing
With years of experience we can quickly give you a better idea of what is involved during developing a product, there are many things to consider and even more to keep track off. Let us guide you through it.
