Everything you need to turn your designs in to 3D reality

The ability to handle an accurate physical model in the midst of design development is a huge step forward in realising the design. Turning your designs into accurate physical models, we incorporate 3D models into the design process – allowing both the design team and client to see the project develop in real space.

Using our ProJet CJP 460 and 660 printers, we can print monochrome and colour 3D models at our Cadventure South West print studio.

We can print models that are up to 381mm x 254mm x 203mm in size, and the cost of printing is calculated according to print volume (with a minimum cost per build).

Reasonable turnaround is 24 to 48 hours, although this depends on printer availability, size and the complexity of the model. Sometimes same-day delivery can be arranged.
