im101-3d-printing-prototyping
MultiJet Fusion (MJF)
6 day lead time
HP's Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) can be used for both prototyping and small-batch-production of functional plastic parts.
Metal 3DP 101 - Part 2 - DMLS-SLM
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
10 day lead time
DMLS produces high performance, end-use metal 3D printed parts for industrial applications in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries.
Introduction to FDM 3D printing
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
4 day lead time

Over 648 customers in Portsmouth satisfied with our local 3D printing service.

“first time i have ever used a service like this and it was very impressive”

gordon, Ringwood
Standard PLA, FDM

“Thanks for your advice in 'thickening the edges in the slicer' to ensure that the finer detail printed successfully.”

Andrew, Esher
Standard ASA, FDM

“Helpful advice offered on print material choice for my application. This resulted in more functional prototypes. The models were dimensionally accurate for our application. Overall very happy with the order and turnaround time.”

James, WINDSOR
Standard PETG, FDM

“Arrived 4 days before scheduled delivery, very nice finish on the product, would definitely use again!”

Daniel, Reading

Tom, Maidenhead

“Excellent service ! I will be using again ! Thank you !”

Adam, Crawley

“returned for more of the same great service, price and speed.”

alex, bognor regis
Standard PLA, FDM

“very quick service and very good print quality. Highly recommended!”

Damien, Poole
Standard PLA, FDM

“After a long career as a professional software developer, this was my first foray into 3D printing. Although the component looked straightforward, in fact it raised several manufacturing issues, having a long thin and relatively large vertical flat panel at right angles to the base, with overhangs. Alex was not only extremely helpful and managed to overcome the manufacturing issues raised, but was also very good at explaining the problems that occurred with this item and why. And he not only sent me the final finished item, but also earlier failed versions so that I could see and understand the initial problems. I would recommend him to anyone for his exemplary professionalism. After this initial experience, I would always choose to use an experienced expert like Alex, rather than get into printing the item myself. 3D design and modelling is one thing, but understanding the possible manufacturing issues and how to surmount them is quite another.”
