Once you have sent us your ideas, sketches or plans using the Get a Quote form, we will take a look and provide you with a quote. If you are unsure on the 3D printing materials and colours we can give our recommendations at this stage.
Our design and 3D print service is designed for businesses and individuals that are looking to create 3D printed objects but do not have a 3D design.
We can take your ideas, sketches or plans and turn them into 3D designs that can then be 3D printed. We have designers that are experienced in producing 3D designs specifically for 3D printing. We also have a range of 3D printers, both FDM (Filament based) and SLA (Resin based), that can produce great quality prints with a focus on affordability.
Once you have sent us your ideas, sketches or plans by completing the Get a Quote form, we will then take a look and provide you with a quote for creating the 3D design and 3D printing it. This will include a timeframe for creating the design and the subsequent 3D printing. As soon as we get your approval we can get to work right away.
Once your approval has been given, we will send you a link to complete the payment (we accepts credit/debit card, PayPal or bank transfer). For larger orders 50% can be paid before and the balance once the work has been completed. We will then get to work right away.
Once the designing and 3D printing have been completed we will email you the design files and the 3D prints can either be collected from our Portsmouth studio or delivered.
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 object that have a good strength.
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.
