New Team Member Welcome

We’re expanding again – there’s a new addition to the team! Allow us to introduce him…..(or her) we’re not too sure on gender – please welcome F170, our new 3D printer, who arrived with us just before Christmas.

20180108_123457So, what does 3D printing allow us to do and why would we use it?

Great question – simple really, this new piece of kit allows us to convert your CAD files into high quality, solid plastic parts in no time at all – giving you a chance to see your designs as a physical part, to hold, examine and make sure it does the job you need it to do – especially important if you’re committing to expensive tooling for production. Not only that, but it also saves time and money on R&D, helping to get to the final design, pre-production, in the shortest time and most efficient manner.

OK, so tell us the technical stuff?

We’re able to print at 0.127mm, 0.178mm and 0.330mm resolution layers with a printing area of X=254mm, Y=254mm and Z=254mm but we can also split your parts, so don’t worry if the part you’d like to print is bigger.
In stock we have Ivory ABS-M30, Ivory ASA and Natural PLA but, of course, you can order different colours for your parts and we can usually get them in within a day or two.

 

If you’d like a quote, please send us your parts in .stp, .step or .iges format and we will be in touch with a price or you can follow the quotation page on our website.

If you’re not sure and need to chat through a project first then contact us
