SLA Resin Colors


FDM Colors

What's great about our FDM 3D printing service?

FDM printing is a fantastic technology that has made prototyping much cheaper. FDM stands for fused deposition modeling. FDM printers use PLA or ABS plastic. PLA is strong, cheap and has a glossy finish.



We charge just £4/hour to print using our FDM 3D printers. So if your design takes 4 hour to print, then it costs just £16



We use PLA plastic with our FDM printers. PLA plastic is strong and stiff and light weight. Parts with a wall thickness of over 2mm are almost impossible to break with your hands max force


Density control

Our software allows us to control the degree infill, (0% is totally hollow, 100% is totally solid). We usually print at 20-30% infill as its nearly at full strength at 35% infill, so any extra infill only adds weight and cost to the print


glossy finish

PLA plastic has a beautifully glossy surface. The smaller the layer thickness the smoother and glossier the surface becomes

Frequently Asked Questions

Below covers various popular questions we recieve, its generally information regarding pricing, lead times material specifics and so on. This only covers some information so if you have any questions remaining don’t hesitate to contact us.

It depends on 4  main factors in order of importance; size, material, layer height and  leadtime. We offer FDM and resin printing, generally speaking resin is about 2-3 times the cost of FDM.

We have 2 lead time options. The fastest is 1 day and the cutoff time is 2pm. this costs 35% for than our standard 3 day lead time. Delivery adds 1 day. We will print standard leadtime order faster than 3 days if possible but with no garuantee. For orders of £300+ the 1 day service might not be available. If its not we’ll inform you immediately 

We can yes, for a flat fee of £5, if you send your STL file via email specifying how tall you would like it to be we’ll rescale and send back to you same day. Alternatively you can save the money by download meshmixer and rescaling it yourself.

Normally yes, however the CAD modelling fee is most likely more expensive than the print itself depending on complexity. Email us a picture of the item and we’ll let you know the modelling fee, once the model is generated we can give you a exact printing cost.

We don’t provide 3d scanning sorry to say

It largely depends on the wall thickness. Parts with wall thickness greater than 20mm thick can easily withstand a persons weight. If you know the forces your part will experience and in what direction, let us know and we will suggest the best print orientation and settings to maximize strength 

We have a dark tinted transparent resin. Its not fully transparent but it is sufficient in many applications. The thicker the part, the less transparent it will be. Glossing givcs it a much  more transprent finish then fresh from the printer.

Our ordering system accepts STL, OBJ, STEP, IGES & 3MF. STL files are the primary 3d printing file format so thats always the best format to default to.

£20 is the minimum order fee however we will manually remove that fee for just your first order.

Its £3.95 for royal mail Tracked 24. Tracked 24 takes 1-2 working day (mon-fri). Or for special delivery (1 working day) its £7

Our ordering system does catch basically all potential printing issues but for a final human confirmation please instead of paying for your order right away, click ‘submit for review’ at the end of the checkout process. We will review the files within the hour (mon-fri 9-5pm). Once confirmed we’ll send you back a payment link.

This is nearly always because the mesh is non-manifold, meaning it has too many overlapping surfaces. This confuses the software as its not able to distinguish which surfaces are closed and open. If you email us the files we’ll manually review it and in some cases we can even repair it.

This means that there are wall thickness in your 3D model that are under the minimum we can garuantee (1mm). With some models we can achieve thinner but it depends largely on the surrounding geometry. At the end of the checkout process, click ‘submit for review’ and we’ll have a look for you.

Our SLA resin is a great choice for for highly detailed models, whereas FDM is more appropriate for applications where cost is primary concern. Get in touch anytime to discuss your requirements.

Support structures are essential when 3d printing models with overhangs. They create platforms for the print to support itself. After printing All accesible supports are manually removed. If your design is free of overhangs it wont require supports at all

For resin 3d printed parts its 156 x 278 x 290mm and for FDM printed parts its 410 x 410 x 500mm.

No problem, if you email us the size of the print and which service you’d like, well reply with a estimate same day.

Yes, for orders over £500 a automatic 10% discount kicks in on the pricing/ordering system.
