3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process through which objects are designed and created in 3D through the addition of material layers based on a digital model. 3D printing of material first starts with an initial design, also known as additive engineering, where the designer creates their design of the part to be produced with the intention that it will be manufactured using additive technology, instead of subtractive technology, getting as much as possible out of the 3D printers.
Professional 3D printing services are different to those offered by freelance makers due to the strict quality control of the raw materials used, the design capacity, the response speed, the quality of the products, and the resources available for post processing.
In the case of plastic materials, professional 3D printing offers a wider range or technical materials that need to be processed in heated beds or water-cooled extruder printers. In regard to metals, the cost and complexity of SLM equipment mean that this option only exists in professional 3D printing.

With 3D printing, any product can be personalised and adapted to changing market conditions, without any extra cost.
Thanks to digitalisation and additive manufacturing, spares can be supplied on demand as our delivery time is minimal.
By using a 3D scanner, we can obtain the plans of a discontinued part, which has no available designs, and then print it in metal or plastic.
The basic definition of 3D printing is to methodically add material until an item is created. The consolidation of parts for the production process also saves energy and material costs.
