THE OFFERING TO COMPANIES

We are moving carefully into the corporate market place.

We can print designs which fit within a 200*200*300 mm build envelope - though anything which comes close to filling this volume would take many days to print. A fairly solid 15cm high item with overhangs has taken us three and a half days to print.

We can print items capable of withstanding moderately serious stresses. Without using any exotic filaments we have produced test prints which have withstood 160kg tension (our basic PLA filament) and 210 kg (resin). On a day-to-day basis, our basic prints will look good and stand up to routine handling for years, if the designs are reasonably robust.

We can print in a variety of materials, including ABS, ASA, CPE, CPE+, HIPS, NGEN, Nylon, PETG, PLA, PC, PP. TPU 95A and Tough PLA. We can also print more precisely with resins, but the variety of these is still relatively limited.

Specify your working environment and we will have a good chance of finding a material which will satisfy your needs - always with the caveat that, as the ultimate working environment becomes more demanding, issues around structural integrity will become more pressing. As with fibre-reinforced composites, care has to be taken with the orientation of the printing.
