3D Printing is the process of making a three-dimensional object of virtually any shape from digital data. 3D printing is achieved using an ‘additive layer process’ whereby successive layers of material are laid on top of each other to create different shapes.

Thanks to 3D printing technology, three dimensional digital designs (typically a CAD file) can be turned into actual physical objects that can be used for prototypes, tooling components, TV / film special effects. decorative items and sometimes, even finished parts. 3D printing technology has applications in architecture, engineering, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, civil engineering, medical,  fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.

There are several different processes that come under the 3D printing umbrella, but they all work on the same basic principle of converting a 3D digital design into thin cross sections and depositing material on top of each of these cross sections to produce a 3-dimensional object.  The material that you choose for your model is determined by the models geometry and customer requirements. We have over 100 materials to choose from.
