3D Printing

Rapid, accurate, full-colour 3D Printing in Media Studio

Also known as additive manufacturing (AM), this rapidly advancing technology has many applications in medicine, surgery and biomedical science. 3D prints can be made in a wide range of materials, including plastics, resins, hardened plaster and various metals. See some examples below and contact us to find out how AM can help you.
