As Industrial designers we can Project Manage your idea by 3D Printing your Files or Designing bespoke, high-quality 3D Items to suit your needs at a cost-competitive rate.
- Supply us with your existing STL CAD files for our Bureau Service to 3D Print in PLA plastic using the FDM or in ABS-like using the LCD Resin process.
- Recreation of existing Objects is possible with aBudget to cover the many hours of Design required to reproduce and refine the CAD Files needed.
- PLEASE NOTE: We only print in PLA, a thermoplastic.
3D PRINTING IN LEEDS
- We print with PLA Plastic Filament only.
- Our minimum order is £75 ex.
- We require a CAD file supplied by you, which we need to test first.
- If you do not have a CAD file we charge £75ph to CAD one. Batch-runs are more economic.
- Our maximum sizes: for FDM it is 300*300*300mm, for LCD RESIN it is 80*40*100mm
3D PRINT LEEDS EXPERIENCE
With over 30 years’ experience working in engineering and industrial design, we are experts at what we do! We have created prototypes for gaming products, animation, medical simulations and specialised product development.
Specialist parts, prototypes, models for product development: whatever your printing needs, we can help you discover the solution. Clients have used our services in the past to produce batch runs or one-off 3D prints and prototypes.
3D PRINT LEEDS – FDM or RESIN
- FDM (Fused Deposition Layer) 3D printing using PLA, PETG Plastic.
- LCD Resin Printing for high quality prototypes.
Both of these processes use the ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing) process to create 3d Models from layers.
VISUALISING YOUR DESIGN
You may have an idea or description, a set of sketches, reference photos, or an existing item that is ready for modification or improvement. Perhaps you need a product reproduced because it is no longer available or economic to recreate in small quantities through traditional mass-production using injection molding, casting or manual fabrication.
Based on your design ideas, we will supply a brief – a plan on how we see the development of your needs – from that point to the final product. We currently only print in PLA to produce your initial prototypes which help lead you on to more detailed manufacturing.
3D Print Leeds staff have been involved in industrial product design, engineering and prototyping for 30 years. We are ready to support you through the entire 3D process from start to finish.

FROM DESIGN TO CAD MODELLING
Concepts at 3D Printing Leeds are pre-visualised using computer modelling to test the look, size, volume and construction aspects of your product. Our team will build your product virtually, calibrate its measurements and parts’ alignment, as well as its movement and connectivity.
These photos illustrate how CAD modelling can be used to create custom elements of a larger piece. This process might also be used to hone the aesthetic elements of individual pieces or to test the quality of a print prior to assembly.
When a product is for mass manufacture, we create technical documents, manuals and instructions in-house. At 3D Printing Leeds, we can also supply you with the branding and graphic design for your project as part of our outstanding service.
3D Print Leeds uses specialised software that processes the geometry of your product design to ensure that the overall process is economic. This processing considers the time, weight, strength and durability: every aspect is considered as part of our service.
FROM MODEL TO FINAL PRODUCT
At this stage, we fabricate a complete, tactile model for your project. You might require us to assemble a single model or multiple copies of a model – or something else!
3D Print Leeds can assemble your model, prototype or props using a range of materials. We offer more traditional materials (metal, wood, resin), as well as more pliable options (rubber, fabrics) depending on the desired function of your product.
Our highly-experienced technicians form all products in our own workshops. We consider fabrication a craft. Our aim is to ensure that your final model will be both practical and aesthetic.
FINISHING YOUR PRODUCT
Many of our clients want the full 3D service, from expert design all the way to complete fabrication.
We are also proud to offer a comprehensive range of finishing options. Although some clients use our services to develop prototypes, other clients reach out to us to help them turn their creative vision into a physical reality.
Finishing details may relate to the colouring or coating of your 3D print. They might involve adding electrical elements, fitting the product, adding further special effects or including graphic design elements. No detail is too small or too large for the attention of our team!
All products are delivered by Royal Mail UK and are insured, tracked and signed for in accordance with your needs.
