“We provide 3D printing and modelling services to all kinds of businesses and consumers. We are passionate about our craft, detail and accuracy are high on our list of priorities. We will not do anything to compromise the quality of your end product and while sometimes this might make us slightly more expensive than alternatives we believe it is more than worth it. “

Our SLA Printers

SLA allows us to create 3D models using polymerization. This is a fancy term which desribes a process whereby material can be hardened when it comes in contact with a beam of light. SLA printing can be very detailed due to the strong, small point of focus of the beam. SLA is great for printing irregular shapes or shapes that would otherwise be unprintable on traditional FDM printers.

Our FDM Printers

Our FDM printers can print models to a accuracy of 90 microns, this is just under 0.01 millimetres, meaning we can provide excellent print detail. This makes our 3d printing service perfect for anyone that requires a very high standard of print. You may find some other 3D printing bureaus offering cheaper or quicker services but please realise that this comes at a cost. We believe in never compromising print quality.

What We Do

In 2016, 3D printing is quite an expansive industry, let us elaborate a little bit on what our specialities are

FDM

FDM

Fused deposition modeling is one of the most popular methods of 3D printing, it’s cheaper than SLA, along with being more environmentally friendly. It doesn’t use any resin and is in general far less messy.

Post Processing

Post Processing

Post processing is an essential part of our 3D printing service. Removing support and finishing models can be quite tricky you don’t know what you’re doing. Allow us to help.

Low Volume Production Runs

Low Volume Production Runs

For low scale production (<1000), FDM ends up being cheaper due to the absence of molds and the expensive fixed costed associated with traditional injection molding.

Prototyping

Prototyping

Due to the fast turnaround, Our 3D printing service is ideal for rapidly prototyping new products. You could create 3+ iterations of a product in  the same time period it would take to manufacture one with traditional technologies.

Architectural Models

For architects we can provide an accurate, detailed scale model of your projects, helping your clients get a tangible feel for the end product. Architectural scale models are also helpful pitching aids for new projects, great at helping you really bring your design to life for your potential clients or investors. The 3D scale model will help your clients better understand your plans for the project, we know clients aren’t always schooled in architectural design and a model  can really help them better understand your vision for their project. Contact us today to bring your design to life!


 

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is quickly becoming a key part of many manufacturing timelines. Compared to traditional injection molding, additive manufacturing allows for a far faster, more detailed and most importantly a less costly prototyping experience. Vivid 3D can produce multiple prototypes at a fraction of the cost a single prototype would cost traditionally. Our 3D printing services are designed for businesses just like yours who need fast prototype iterations at very short notice. We understand what you need out of the process and our mission is to make you as satisfied as possible with the end result. Contact Us for a Prototype Quote Today.
