We can 3D print your designs in twelve unique materials, for prototyping or production.
We can teach you how to design revolutionary components that utilise the best of AM technology.
We can reverse engineer your existing and legacy components, ready for 3D printing or analysis.
We provide you with the latest design guides, articles, news and more, at no cost.
A tougher version of PLA with properties closer to those of ABS. An excellent prototyping material, with slightly better quality than Recycled PLA.Tough PLA
A recycled bioplastic material made from factory waste streams. Perfect for large models, first prototypes, and is available in a range of colours.Recycled PLA
PET-G is a strong and hard general prototyping material that has a little bit of flex. It is UV resistant and withstands higher temperatures than PLA.PET-G
A smooth and hard material, with a satin, matte surface. Perfect for 'looks like' prototypes that need a near injection moulding finish.Standard Resin
A nearly completely transparent material, for prototyping optics, and for parts where fluid flow needs to be observed within a component.Clear Resin
A certified skin-safe material, with a balanced combination of stiffness and durability. For general engineering prototypes, with a bit of flex.Tough 1500 Resin
An extremely tough material, that can be used to mimic polypropylene. Has the lowest coefficient of friction of any of our materials, and is slightly flexible.Durable Resin
A blend of nylon and carbon fibre, for demanding applications. Excellent dimensional stability, surface finish and heat resistance.Onyx
This material offers the greatest design freedom as it prints support-free. Good for production runs, as it is more scalable than other materials.SLS Nylon
Unlike some other 3D printing bureaus, we offer a wide variety of different materials so that we can match the material to your needs, rather than make you compromise. Find more options here.All Materials

We have twelve different materials to choose from, for all your 3D printing needs.
We are a 3D printing service, based in Oxford, UK. We have a wide range of FDM, SLA, and SLS materials and processes, and serve small, technical teams spread across the whole of the UK. Our small team guarantee a quick response and a friendly service, which our existing business customers highly value.
We have a wide variety of different materials, ranging from soft and flexible silicone style parts, to extremely strong and durable 3D printed composites. Our customers use our 3D printing services for rapid prototyping, design verification, and low volume production runs. Additive manufacturing technologies are well suited to low volume manufacturing of complex geometries, but are also capable of producing fully functional parts and high quality products of all types when using the right material.
Our online 3D printing service includes post-processing and the removal of support material, so you can get quality models, functional prototypes, or end-use functional parts quickly and without hassle. There are no setup or tooling costs, even for batch production, making our 3D printing service a highly cost-effective process.
After lack of demand from our business clients, we no longer offer an instant quote feature. This saves us money, and allows us to give you the best price without compromising on quality. Instead, use our enquiry form to upload your STL file (we accept other file formats such as STEP files) and we will send you your quote, as well as performing any file repair that may be needed for free, before your design enters the 3D printing process. We will also help you choose the right material for your project, and redirect you if our 3D printing services aren't a good fit for your company, and you would be better served with injection moulding, or another manufacturing technology that would save you money.
As well as our prototyping and 3D printing services, we are able to help you design your product using a range of cutting edge techniques such as topology optimisation, generative design, custom lattice generation, and more. We pride ourselves on rising to any challenge, so get in touch even if other companies have said that what you need is impossible! Your project or new technology matters to us, and we want to help you make it the best it can be.
We primarily serve professional business customers. If you need 3D printed parts for hobbies or craft projects, there are likely to be better options out there to cater to your needs. That being said, solo entrepreneurs moving through the design process, who are seeking one-offs or rapid prototyping support often find excellent value in our 3D printing service too.
We are based in Oxford, in the Oxford Centre for Innovation. Options to collect parts are available to local businesses, but otherwise our online 3D printing service is exactly the same for companies or designers based anywhere in the UK, seeking a quality 3D printing company.

The largest we can print in one piece is approximately 330 x 240 x 300 mm. This is using our FDM process, in Tough PLA, Recycled PLA, or PET-G. It is sometimes possible to print larger items, by printing the part in multiple pieces and joining them together afterwards, but this is usually best suited to aesthetic pieces rather than structural ones.
It depends! Our 3D print pricing is primarily based upon the volume of materials used, so larger items cost more than smaller ones. Our most premium material, FBGR Onyx costs about 5x as much as our cheapest, Recycled PLA plastics. Try our pricing calculators on our Get A Quote page to get a better idea, or just reach out to us for a personalised quote. Our minimum order charge is £45 + VAT.
We use the two terms interchangeably, as does the vast majority of the wider industry. Strictly speaking though, there is a difference. '3D printer' is a trademarked phrase, owned by Stratasys, so the wider industry had to come up with an alternative. Additive manufacturing is a broader term encompassing all manufacturing technologies that 'add' material, usually in layers, to make final parts.
Every order comes with next day delivery as standard, and at no extra cost. We use Royal Mail for all deliveries unless you specifically request an alternative courier. If you would prefer to pick up your order in person however, this can be arranged - just let us know before we post it! You must arrange all visits with us though, so please don't stop by unannounced.
No. We do however, offer Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing services instead. These are similar polymer additive manufacturing technologies, as both SLS and MJF use nylon powder, build without support structures, and produce high quality parts with complex geometries. We don't offer binder jetting either, for the same reasons.
We regularly do production runs of fully functional parts, in multiple materials that are of good enough quality for end-use parts. 3D printing also has several advantages over injection moulding, such as no setup or tooling costs for batch production, and the ability to vary or customise the design of each of the individual plastic parts as needed. 3D printing technology has come a long way, and now competes with laser cutting and CNC-machining processes for production too, as well as functional prototypes and one-offs.
If you wish to send multiple design files, please put them in a zip folder first! Our website will only accept a single file.
If you require 3D scanning services, please include a picture of the object you need to be scanned.
