3D Design and Printing

TMS can provide in-house 3D design and 3D printing services for bespoke prototype enclosure modelling and other mechanical parts. 3D printing is ideal for prototyping custom enclosures and compliments our in-house PCB and Cabling Design and manufacturing services.

3D Concept Models

3D concept models are far superior to 2D drawings or artist impressions. 3D printing provides you with a low cost tactile representation of your design that you can hold and feel. Final assembly specifications are easily verified and any concept or dimension errors can be adjusted and reprinted until the correct desired results are achieved.

3D Printing Filament

TMS print mainly with black Polylactic Acid (PLA) filament which is a low cost environmentally friendly biodegradable plastic. It is reasonably strong and rigid and can be machined if required. It is also available in 18 other colours.

3D Delta Printer

Our Delta printer is capable of print sizes of up to 250mm diameter x 350mm high at a layer print resolution of 0.1mm.

Please be aware that the 3D printed finish is not high gloss or retail/commercial quality but it is excellent for verification purposes prior to costly injection mould production.
