3DPrint-AU announced today the launch of their new 3D printing service for Australia.
Manufacturing in Australia has experienced many changes since the 3D Printing revolution began in 2011. Many Australians have started to use desktop 3D printing to prototype and manufacture products in their sheds and workplaces. Limited access to industrial capable machines have resulted in Australians having to purchase parts from overseas, with long lead times. Creators in Europe and the USA have had easy access to this technology, now it is Australia’s turn. Having a local 3D Print service means that customers in Australia are no longer at a disadvantage. Main centres, Melbourne and Sydney will be able to receive their models within 48 hours of the printer finishing the job.
3DPrint-AU’s biggest point of difference is that they charge a fixed price of 15 cents per cm3 based on the bounding box of the part, rather than using complex formulas. This makes it extremely easy for customers to know what they are being charged even without having to upload the part for an online quote. It takes the mystery out of production pricing.
Founder, Bruce Jackson stated that “I wanted to provide all Australians access to industrial quality and strength 3D print services. Something that they wouldn’t be able to fit in their shed. This alone, will help bring our rapid manufacturing capabilities to the same level of that in Japan and America.”
3DPrint-AU use industrial Elite Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) additive manufacturing 3D printers to create functional parts that are not only durable but heat and chemical resistant too. Nylon 12 is the standard material production, due to being versatile and affordable. An introduction to the printing process can be viewed here.
The company aims to provide an exceptional level of service and part quality to all corners of Australia.
3DPrint-AU is an offshoot of 3D Printing Systems, Australia’s leading distributor of 3D Printers. Leveraging upon 3D Printing Systems network of unique partnerships across Australia and the Tasman, 3DPrint-AU will soon become the local 3D print service of choice for Australian businesses and consumers.
