With Christmas fast approaching, we thought we’d let you know that in addition to the bank holidays we will be closed on 28th, 29th and 30th December 2022 so our first day back will be on Tuesday 3rd January 2023.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Our Maximum Resin 3D Print Size Has Increased

We now have some shiny new SLA 3D printers, so can offer highly detailed 4K resin 3D prints up to 192 x 120 x 245mm.

Want to go even bigger? Our largest FDM 3D printer can print up to 350 x 350 x 400mm.

What are SLA resin 3D Printers?

SLA 3D printing uses a liquid resin that turns solid when exposed to UV light. The build plate is lowered down into the resin and the object is created upside-down layer by layer as the build plate raises up. It is ideal for small highly detailed objects and the print quality is generally being better than FDM 3D printing, however, it is a little more expensive.

What are FDM 3D Printers?

FDM 3D printing uses a spool of filament that extruded onto a build plate in a creates the object layer by layer. It is the more cost-effective method of 3D printing and can be used to make both small and large objects that have a good strength.

COVID 19 Lockdown 3

Just a quick update to let you know that our services and lead times will be running as normal throughout the UK national lockdown that began on 5th January 2021.

If you have any queries please get in touch.

3D Printing COVID-19 Visors for the NHS

Our first batch of 3D printed NHS shields have been donated to our local Queen Alexandra hospital in Portsmouth, there are lots more on the way. We hope they help in battling the COVID-19 virus amid the global PPE shortage. Particular thanks to Eggar Forrester Insurance for their donation to help with the cost of materials and to enable us to make a lot more.

We now have a Resin based (SLA) 3D Printer

We have just added a resin based 3D printer (known as an SLA 3D printer) to our fleet.

An SLA 3D printer uses resin that is cured using UV light. It tends to produce higher quality 3D prints than an FDM 3D printer which uses a spool of filament to create the object rather than liquid resin. However SLA 3D prints do tend to be more expensive to create. It is particularly suited to small intricate and highly details prints.

You can find out how much it will cost to have your design 3D printed in resin by using our Instant Quote feature and selecting resin as the material.

Instant 3D Printing Quotes

We are now able to give you instant quotes and online ordering for our 3D Printing Service. All you need to get started is an STL or OBJ file.

This will make the process of ordering 3D prints much quicker and allow you to order 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To get an instant price for your 3D prints, all you have to do is upload your STL or OBJ file and then choose from the relevant options (such as material, colour, layer height, infill and completion date). If you are happy with the price you can then go ahead and place the order right there and then. Try it out today.

If you would like something 3D printed but do not have an STL file, thats not a problem, we have our Design and 3D Print service for you.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As you know the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is currently affecting millions of people around the world. Our thoughts go out to all the people that have been affected.

We wanted to let you know that our services and lead times are currently running as normal. We are taking every precaution necessary to ensure that the highest level of hygiene is maintained.

If you have any queries please get in touch.

New Large 3D Printer Added to our Fleet

To find out more about what we can offer please get in touch.

Showcasing the benefits of 3D printing at the UK Games Expo

We will be exhibiting at the UK Games Expo in order to showcase the benefits of 3D printing to games publishers and enthusiasts.

The show will take place at the NEC in Birmingham from Friday 29th – Sunday 31st May 2020 and you will find us at stand 2-366.

We will be sharing the stand with our client, Sky Raven Games, who are a games publisher and have used our services to help develop prototypes for there new board game.

Press Release: Triple Axis launches in Southsea

Southsea based 3D printing business, Triple Axis, launches and will make the joys of 3D printing available to everyone with their 3D design, 3D printing and reverse engineering services.

Southsea, Hampshire – November 2019 – Triple Axis wants to get more people enjoying the benefits of 3D printing. They believe that the main two barriers that stop individuals and businesses enjoying the benefits of 3D printing are, number one, the lack of 3D design knowledge, and number two, access to a 3D printer. They aim to solve the first barrier with their 3D design service that can take a client’s sketches or plans and turn them into a 3D printable design. The second barrier will be solved thanks to their affordable 3D printing service. Owning a 3D printer can be a financial and time burden thanks to the learning and maintenance required. Triple Axis gives individuals and companies the option to outsource their 3D printing to ensure that the cost and distraction from their main business is kept to a minimum.

3D printing is a fantastic medium that allows objects to be created quicker and at a lower cost than traditional manufacturing processes such as injection moulding. Almost anything you can imagine can be 3D printed and is most useful for prototypes, unique or customised objects and small production runs. 3D printing is an international phenomenon, it’s a new medium that is here to stay and is growing and evolving every day.

The founder of Triple Axis, James Preen, has been in the industry since 2013 having previous run a local 3D printing retailer. After selling his shares in that business he’s now looking to make the maximum impact with 3D printing and states “I want as many people as possible to experience the benefits of 3D printing because I strongly believe it enables people to innovate more quickly. I believe the way to do this is not for everyone to own a 3D printer but for everyone to have access to one.”
