3D Printing

3D Print Services

Visualization is a key component in any educational experience. 3D printing is capable of providing a tangible, palpable object not only for visualization but for tactile confirmation of intricacies in construct and property dynamics of surface quality. A variety of printing materials are available depending on the need and end use of the model. Additional post-printing preparation of the model involves sanding, smoothing, and painting to accentuate the properties of the model and to create a more accurate representation of the object. What better way to enhance desired knowledge in our educational than to experience as close to reality, with a 3D printed model.

We offer a wide variety of services to create your 3D model through to the final finishing.
A list of services we offer along with general rate references are outlined in the table below:
