About us

We completely agree that 3D printing is the future. We have made lots of interesting 'things' ourselves. Now we'd like to help you do the same.But first we'd like to pass on a tip you won't see on any other 3D printing supplier's web site:

 NO 3D printers work straight out of the box.

You will definitely need some help to understand how to make stuff.  How to level and calibrate your printer.  Which filament to use. What temperature to print at. How to unclog a blocked extruder. Which software to use. Why your latest print just failed.

Does any of this sound familiar? It does to us. You see we started over 20 years ago in 2D print, refilling cartridges. Back then the big manufacturers charged you lots of money for shiny new cartridges. But we refilled their old ones saving you money (and helping the planet on the way). 


And today nothing has changed!

We're still great at all that 2D stuff but it' s just a natural extension to help you do the same with 3D. We'll still save you money. (You don't have to pay for the 'free' included delivery). And we still care about the planet (selling and even re-manufacturing the recylable stuff). And you can still talk to our experts when you need to find out how to get the best out of the technology.

If you want, we'll even call in to your (local) business or home to unclog that blocked extruder for you. Level the bed. Recommend the right temperature. 

And of course you can always drop into our shop to pick up your consumables. It actually costs less than on line because it's already in stock. Our price doesn't need to include 'free' postage (someone pays for that, right?). 

You can touch it. You can feel it. You can see it. You can talk to an expert. We'll help you make it correctly next time....
And we'll never charge you for our opinions.

If you just want to learn more, then we now have some training courses to help you do this here

Figured it out for yourself? Please share your insight in our forum.


If we can help encourage you to engage with this technology, it will delight us. We genuinely enjoy meeting face-to-face. Helping people make 3D printers actually work and produce real things for real people with a real benefit.

Empowering 3D printing.
