A range of processes to choose from

Our Services

SLA (Stereolithography)

Fast, accurate and versatile. Perfect for proof-of-concept models, masters for vacuum casting, fully finished exhibition models or even production parts.

Figure 4

Utilising the latest direct digital production technology, Figure 4 produces incredibly accurate, finely detailed parts in a range of functional materials.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)

Robust, production suitable materials with excellent physical properties: strength, high-temperature, stiffness, abrasion resistance.

Vacuum Casting

The perfect solution when a specific material property, colour, texture or over-moulding is required. From 1-offs to small batch production.

Finishing & Painting

Elevating basic parts and prototypes to fully finished replica models, indistinguishable from the final product, will give your design the maximum impact.

Other services

For less popular processes we have a network of trusted suppliers who we use to fill technology or material gaps when required.

File Formats

SLA/Figure 4/SLS

Ideally high resolution STL files but STEP and IGES also acceptable.

Vacuum Casting

As SLA but also detailed information regarding material requirements, finishing, colours and quantities.

Finishing & Painting

Colour references (ideally RAL) and, if required, a breakdown of colour/texture by part/surface.


AI and EPS are the most common format vector files.

Laser Cutting/Photo Etching
