3D Printing in Birmingham

Central Scanning’s experienced team of technicians carry out high quality 3D printing in Birmingham using modern 3D printers.

Our 3D printing Birmingham team uses STL or CAD files generated using 3D scanning and printing software to print accurate 3D objects based on digital designs. Printed 3D objects are coloured, multi-layered and as complex as necessary, making them highly prized for engineering projects that require detailed, moving parts.

Our 3D printing services in Birmingham are used by clients to provide a wide range of solutions across industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and more. Commonly, 3D printing is used for prototyping, allowing companies in Birmingham to quickly produce accurate models of their products for the design and marketing stages of a project. This saves time, saves money, and allows changes and updates to be seamlessly worked into prototype models before the final product is completed.

3D printing is also an effective way to quickly and cost effectively manufacture tools, parts and fixtures for an impressive array of uses. 3D printing projects can be simple or complex, and you’ll be surprised at just how much can be 3D printed in a short space of time.
