Printers and Materials

We utilise a variety of printers of all sizes and capabilities as well as various materails to ensure that the final product is fabricated as required by our customers.

You can find out more below.

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

FFF Printing

Fused Filament Fabrication is a 3D printing process that uses a continuous filament of a thermoplastic material. Filament is fed from a large spool through a moving, heated printer extruder head, and is deposited on the growing work.

The three main materials we utilise are PLA - which is highly versatile, PETG - being tough and durable, and TPU - a flexible rubber-like material.

If you are unsure as to which material to would best suit your needs let us know and we'll assist you in selecting the most suitable for your application.

Stereolithography (SLA)

SLA Printing

Stereolithography is a form of 3D printing technology used for creating models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts in a layer by layer fashion using photochemical processes by which light causes chemicals to cross-link together to form polymers. Those polymers then make up the body of a three-dimensional solid.

Stereolithography is also a relatively fast process and can produce almost any design.

Our standard resins produce high stiffness, high resolution prints with a smooth injection moulding-like finish. Their low-cost makes them ideal for prototyping applications.

Unless specified we will select the best resin for you prints based on the final product and printing properties.
