About

Professional 3D Printing Service from the Inventors of 3D Printing.

3D Systems are the UK's leading supplier of SLA and SLS 3D printed parts for Model and Prop Makers, working with a number of leading Film & TV studios, production teams and agencies.

We have over 20 commercial grade 3D printing machines with bed sizes of up to 750 x 650 x 550 mm.

Fast turnarounds; from two days onward.

We are conveniently based within 30 minutes of Pinewood, Leavesden, Shepperton and Central London and service the whole of the UK.

The advent of special effects and computerised modelling has upped the ante in making the impossible happen. 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM) compliments this new technology and you can take your prop and model making to new levels by offering:

More accurate and realistic parts
Build props from CGI data
Fast turnaround – within days – achieving deadlines
Ability to have your parts interact with post CGI production
Lighter parts – easier to transport and operate
Create small models to gain stakeholder buy-in and preliminary market research
Scanning of props or references where there is no CAD data – saving time
We will bring your projects to life by building in a suite of different materials including metals and plastics, from transparent, semi-opaque to opaque. Using the very latest 3D printing processes– we grow parts in 0.1mm layers – a quicker and low-cost alternative to hand constructed models.

Getting the scale correct for the whole model or models is essential – our processes give you accuracy and uniformity as standard.

3D Systems also offers a full workshop facility to finish your parts, joining components, preparing for painting as well as an on-site purpose built paint shop facility.

Examples of our experience:

Stand in models
Mannequins and puppet components
Costume hardware e.g. space suit components, accessories (ray guns!)
Props for adverts and marketing campaigns

How we can help you

We help you cut down the time spent on modelling by manufacturing your props and models from just 2 working days – saving weeks compared to traditional routes.
