3D Printing Benefits Your Business

A 3D Printer is a powerful tool to help you communicate efficiently and win clients.

Bring production in-house with 3D printing
and take control of your projects.

Work in tandem with traditional models by adding unique details that would be costly and labour intensive to do by hand. Work internally and print your entire CAD models to create a strong, accurate visual model that can be updated with cleint feedback. 3D printing opens the doors to many creative uses. There are also benefits that decision makers want: reduced costs, reduced iteration time and, through Shop3D, dedicated training and support.

Have us prove the value to you.

"A 3D printed model is stronger and longer lasting. If we outsource the model making, the cost is much greater, and can take a whole day. Generally, I choose to 3D print models because it allows me to achieve certain results that I would never be able to achieve using traditional methods."

- Matt White, Founding Partner at MATT Architecture
