3D Printing & Scanning

We have an expanding range that includes some the latest technology developments of 3D printers, printing materials, replacement parts and 3D scanners for use in education, laboratory, industrial and office applications.

What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a process by which items are produced in response to a computer-generated blueprint or design. Unlike conventional manufacturing processes, the finished object is built up using thin layers of material, such as metal or plastic, rather than carved out of a block of material by drilling, sculpting or cutting, which is a subtractive process.

The 3D printer is increasingly appearing in the home office or workshop. Once beyond the reach of all but the wealthiest pockets, a drastic drop in price and rapid advances in technology have made the new generation of professional 3D printers both affordable and desirable.
