You’ve come up with your new product, and now you’re ready to prototype to test your concept.

You’ve probably already reached the conclusion that 3D printing is the best and most cost-effective way to bring your prototype or product to life, but buying an in-house 3D printer just isn’t an option.

That is where Ricoh 3D come in.

With our state-of-the-art printers and vast array of materials – including the purest polypropylene on the market – we will turn your product from design to prototype quickly and easily.

Why outsource rather than investing in a 3D printer?

The best technologies and materials | At Ricoh 3D we have invested millions of pounds in our state-of-the-art 3D printers. Technologies include Fused deposition modelling (FDM), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), High Speed Sintering (HSS/MJF)

We also offer a choice of more than a dozen materials and have the experts on hand to advise on which one is best for each individual project.

Save money | Firstly, there is the obvious advantage of not having to shell out on expensive hardware. But, moreover, 3D printing is not flawless, and mistakes do happen. Using Ricoh minimises risk as we will pick up the cost of any mishaps, charging you only for the perfect product.

Save time | 3D printing is faster than traditional manufacturing techniques, meaning you can quickly test a prototype and, if it’s not quite right, tweak it and try again…and again.

Less hassle | Leave it to the experts and give yourself more time to work on other things.

Stay current | Ricoh 3D’s commitment is to always be able to offer you the latest in state-of-the-art technologies, with our continual investment programme in the latest hardware.
