3D Printing: Leading the next industrial revolution

Setting the standard in reliable and affordable desktop 3D printing and scanning.

3D printing is an exciting new technology to reliably print your designs with a quick turnaround. It helps you bring your innovative ideas to life, and minimises the time needed for your prototypes to hit the market. If you are a brand owner, it is an affordable and convenient way to showcase your brand through unique and customised 3D printed products for your marketing campaign or event. The possibilities are many – you can use 3D printing to make your product samples, promotional items, logos, event giveaways, gifts, models, and parts.




Quick, affordable, innovative

In 3D printing, the user does not need to make large, upfront investment in moulding. It is possible to print first and verify your drawing, enabling ultra-fast prototyping and model making, from the convenience of one’s desk. It makes possible to demonstrate one’s proof of concept with ease – in a matter of minutes, the product developer/innovator can simply reverse engineer, digitise the product, and convert it into a 3D, editable design. Innovation and iteration, too, can be undertaken as often as needed.

As per an estimate by 3D printer manufacturers, MakerBot and Stratasys, 3D printing can realise a 40%-90% reduction in lead times and 70%-90% cost savings, when used in the creation of jigs and fixtures.
