HOW DOES IT WORK?
There are two routes that a 3D Print job can take:
FROM YOUR OWN FILES
A NEW DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE
1. FROM YOUR OWN FILES
If you are in a rush simply EMAIL US with your file(s).
All 3D Printing requires a 3D CAD File* of your item. Preferably in .STL format.
If you do not have any 3D Files, we can create files from your sketches, drawings, photos or reverse engineer from a 3D Scan*
Our minimum charge of £75ph means One-off or Domestic items are often uneconomic.
*This work is chargeable if we have to create these.
From the 3D File we calculate the volume of material and the time it takes a machine to print your item. Every item is different. We may need to 3D Print some test files first for you to check or match to your requirements. These are chargeable. We can then provide a quotation with cost per item and a delivery schedule.
If you already have your File(s) ready then you can Simply UPLOAD your .STL file using the link below and we will reply with a full quotation for your 3D Print prototype once we have reviewed your file.
Or you can use our contact form and upload files there too.
3D PRINT QUOTATION PROCESS
To save you time please mention these facts in your comment …
- quantity of units/prints required
- colour, we print prototypes in Grey PLA
- your deadline
Every item is different due to the size, geometry, infill or number of parts, so please bear with us while we find the best solution for you.
3D PRINT PRICING
We have a minimum 3D Printing unit charge of £75. This is because the time to setup and test a print is considerable and unlike many companies we actually test print your item for Free to ensure it is deliverable before we quote.
From there on we can calculate the true amount of material, time and any finishing or ‘cleanup’ post-printing processing required.

2. A NEW DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE
Creating something New and Innovative is exciting, challenging and time-consuming. Like all creative ideas the production follows a path so we are both successful and true to the goal.
- A discussion or meeting to understand what each other brings to the Design challenge.
- Creating a written Brief with Stages and key Goals in the process towards a Prototype.
- Costings attributed to those Stages.
- Concept Designs, and Prototypes are made and evaluated.
- Refinements and Feedback are put back into the development circle…
- Final items is produced
- The project moves on towards towards low or high-volume Manufacturing tenders.
