Using 3D Printing to Develop a Positive Flow Window
Using 3D Printing to Develop a Positive Flow Window
28 November 2019

Windows are the biggest heat sink in most people’s homes. Glass by itself is not a very efficient insulator, which is why double glazing is widely used. By introducing a second pane of glass and filling the area between the windows with an inert gas, the windows become a much better insulator. In Nordic countries […]

How C7 Carbon Uses 3D Printing to Create Custom Car Parts
How C7 Carbon Uses 3D Printing to Create Custom Car Parts
21 October 2019

Aftermarket car parts are very usually manufactured from ABS plastic or fibreglass, depending on the application. Some are also made from carbon fibre, although these are rarely mass-produced due to cost. For those made from plastic, 3D printing offers a rather exciting opportunity to design truly custom parts, because the technology enables freedom in design […]

Prototyping an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle with 3D Platform
25 February 2019

Seven fourth-year students from University of Warwick have worked together to prototype reusable moulds for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) body. By using additive-manufacturing techniques in aerospace innovation, they hope to create a drone capable of flying humanitarian missions where traditional road access is limited. Another application is mountain rescue. Print BIG Drones have to […]

3D Printing Large Mock Up Parts with Progress Rail and 3D Platform
12 November 2018

Machining very large parts such as shafts 12" in diameter is a time-intensive and expensive endeavour. Progress Rail, a Caterpillar company, specialise in manufacturing extremely large parts for railroads and the transport industry. They also make off-highway vehicles for mining, industry and construction. They became interested in large-format 3D printing as a tool to fabricate prototypes and develop […]

Sometimes, small just isn't going to cut it. And for all their capability and excellent performance, desktop 3D printers are limited by their size. Even the biggest desktop 3D printers can only manufacture something the size of a football. The way around that is to print large models in parts, but that increases design and […]

Request a sample

Ensuring that you choose the right additive manufacturing solution for your application is our priority and we know that one size rarely fits all. Having a physical sample of a 3D printed part in your hand to show quality, material properties, durability and abilities can ultimately help the decision-making process.

We partner with a wide range of manufacturers with over 30 different printers between them, capable of printing in a variety materials from PLA to metal. As we have no ties to a single manufacturer, we are proud to able to provide expert impartial advice to you and samples from our printers direct to you to assess the print quality and material properties
