With everyday that goes by there are new 3D Printing Materials added to the market, both in Metal 3D Printing and Plastic 3D Printing.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Great 3D Prints start with Great Designs.

3D Printing Services

To get the most out of 3D Printing like light weight high strength parts you need to either design or re-design your parts for the manufacturing process you will be using (3D Printing), it is called Design for Additive Manufacture.

Different 3D Printing processes have different strengths and weaknesses, Design for Additive Manufacture exploits these strengths and minimises the weaknesses to obtain an exceptional product as an output.

Most 3D Print failures with modern 3D Printers are caused in the design process. With knowledge of the 3D Printing strengths and weaknesses, Expert Design for Additive Manufacture skills and a Wealth of Experience we are able to help you go from initial concept to prototype/product in a very short time frame, days not weeks or months.

Design for Additive Manufacture allows you to optimise your product through:

  • Part Consolidation - with 3D Printing you are able to consolidate multiple parts (that had to be split up because of the manufacturing process or complexity) into a single part.
  • Complex Part Design - previously impossible parts are now possible with 3D Printing. Internal cavities, complex internal ports, etc, are now possible.
  • Weight Reduction - 3D Printing is an additive process which means you have to option to add material only where it is required, which equals significant weight reductions
  • Waste Reduction - Unlike subtractive manufacturing, additive manufacturing only uses the material required to produce the parts which cuts down on waste material. Which is both great for the environment but also reduces part cost.

Engineering Grade 3D Printing Materials

3D Printing has evolved from just printing toys and Yoda heads, there are some fantastic engineering grade materials on the market

Choosing the best material to suit your needs is something we can help with. 3D Printing Materials range from flexible urethane's through to carbon fibre reinforced plastics through to Titanium and other 3D Printed Metals.

Some of the materials we are currently using are:

  • PETG
  • Chopped Carbon Fibre reinforced Nylon
  • Polycarbonate
  • ABS
  • PLA

Some of the materials we are currently TRIALLING are:

  • Copper
