3D Printing

3D Printing also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the process of making a physical object from a three dimensional digital model.

Here at 3D Print Bureau we specialise in turning your digital designs in to reality. Our highly trained team of 3D Professionals are experienced in not only just printing your files, but fixing them too. Using the latest in 3D Software we can fix and analyse where necessary to make sure you get the optimum 3D Print from your file.
