3D Printing

3D Printing creates a physical object from a digital design and is perfect for creating one-off prototypes or for low volume manufacture.

Our 3D printing services are ideal for:

– Turning your CAD scans into a rapid prototype
– Low volume manufacture
– Vacuum casting
– Concept modelling
– Simulation modelling
– Recreating models from damaged originals

Why 3D Printing?

At Laser Scanning, we use industry-leading 3D printing technology to turn your digital designs into physical products, rigorous quality control standards ensuring precise results every single time. As experts in 3D scanning, we can see your project through from initial digitisation or reverse engineering, right through to the creation of 3D printed prototypes.

3D printing is used in a whole range of industries and our clients range from international automotive and aerospace companies to architects and smaller private product design clients.

There are various different 3D Printing technologies and materials available today but all work on the same concept; turning a digital model or CAD design into a solid three-dimensional object, building layer-by-layer of liquid photoplymer before curing with laser light.

Choosing Laser Scanning for your 3D printing requirements is a cutting-edge yet cost-effective solution. Prototypes of varying sizes up to 300 x 300 x 150mm can be recreated from CAD models using the 3D printing process and with no tooling or practical intervention required, it could be the most cost-effective and practical solution to your manufacturing needs. We can build your parts quickly and to the highest quality, whilst remaining extremely competitive in terms of price.

Technical Specifications

We can create 3D prints and prototypes in PLA, ABS, Nylon and Resin. We use two of the most technologically-advanced desktop 3D printers available in the industry today; the Form 2 and the Ultimaker 2+.

The Form 2 uses stereolithography (SLA) to cure solid isotropic parts from a liquid photoplymer using a laser. Considered the most reliable 3D printer in the world, the Form 2 has been used to create parts for the likes of Boeing, Tesla, Apple and many more of the world’s leading product designers and manufacturers.

Designed to recreate highly complex digital models, the Ultimaker 2+ can complete your most difficult 3D printing tasks with ease. The award-winning compact 3D printer is one of the most precise in the industry.

With our 3D printers, we are able to print to a total of eight different materials including VeroGray Fullcure 850, Endur RGD450, VeroClear Fullcure 810, VeroBlue Fullcure, VeroWhite Plus Fullcure 835 and VeroWhite Plus Fullcure 875.

Service Limitations

With extensive experience of 3D scanning and design, 3D printing complements our existing portfolio of services perfectly and means we can deliver a full scale 3D printing project from end-to-end. Our 3D printing service can reverse engineer parts and products for wide range of applications and we have performed 3D printing services for an extensive variety of industries, from architects and designers to luxury car manufacturers including Aston Martin and Range Rover.

Technologies we are able to assist our client with in terms of 3D scanning include but are not limited to:

– Vacuum casting
– Polyjet
– CNC and conventional machining

What we need to know

The first stage in the 3D printing process is selecting the right 3D printer from those we have available. To do this, we need to gather a clear idea of what you would like to achieve.

Once we receive your initial enquiry, we’ll arrange to have a chat to find out more about your 3D printing needs. From therein we will be in a position to advise on the 3D printing solution for your individual project and the timeframes involved in delivering the result you require.

At Laser Scanning we believe that communication is key and that staying in constant communication is essential in delivering a 3D printing project that not only meets our customers’ expectations but exceeds them. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to deliver results that push the boundaries of what can conventionally be achieved in 3D printing and reverse engineering processes. We know how important it is to deliver unbeatable accuracy in often tight lead times and our specialist team makes the process effortless, however big or small your project.
