Design

 


Each 3d printed project starts with a 3d file. As designers, we know the need for attention to detail making sure the design process and output is aligned with the client’s creative vision. With many years of experience designing for digital manufacturing, our well rounded design team is able to use our suite of digital design tools to create a 3d file of nearly anything, which serves as a blueprint telling the 3d printer what to make.
