Our bureau allows businesses to try out a wide variety of different technologies to find their ideal solution. The bureau supports a wide range of applications such as cutting guides, low volume production parts and high surface finished protype models.

The rapid production capabilities combined with intelligent software mean no design is too hard to achieve. Advanced materials and colour options allow for us to print to your exact specification required.

Our bespoke solutions allow us to produce cost effective, realistic, manufacturing aids and end-use parts.

Our 3D printing services, we hope not only provides extra support for businesses in times of crisis. But also provide a long-term solution for product designers and manufacturers requiring extra capacity.

Stratasys UK 3D printing service

Stratasys 3D printers employ two main build methods, each with their own benefits and specialisms. We can offer you the best solution for your individual needs and applications.

3D Printed kitchen utensils using PolyJet technology

PolyJet 3D printing works in a similar way to the inkjet technique, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper it jets layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a tray.

These fine layers help to achieve exceptional detail and surface smoothness, turning out builds of final-product standard.

PolyJet can produce specialised moulds, prototypes, medical models, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools. It also incorporates the widest variety of vivid colours and materials into a single print. This ensures unparalleled efficiency and versatility in product development.

Fused deposition modelling (FDM) printing builds parts layer by layer from the bottom up, by heating and depositing thermoplastic filament.

It is a popular technique among modern manufacturers who are seeking viable alternatives to metal production. or example, where fabrication is extremely time-consuming, tooling is expensive and achieving complex shapes is difficult.

FDM uses engineering-grade thermoplastics to create accurate, repeatable, environmentally stable, lightweight but high-strength shapes faster than ever before, reducing waste and energy usage in the process.

Prints are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Our experienced team of dedicated and highly skilled engineers are ready to work on everything from single parts or short production runs to large-scale projects, all backed up by superior levels of service and support.

Our 3D printers: The machines we have available for our 3D printing service

Objet30 Pro

Stratasys Objet30 pro 3d printer
(PolyJet. Build size: 294 x 192 x 148mm)

With up to eight material options, the Objet30 combines the accuracy and versatility of a professional printer with the small footprint of a desktop system.

It has the industry’s:

  • best print resolution for yielding smooth surfaces
  • highest precision on even the smallest moving parts
  • greatest ability to create thin walls

A roomy tray size allows for the printing of:

  • variety of consumer goods
  • electronics
  • medical devices, and more

Thanks to the Vero family of materials, the Objet30 Pro can simulate dimensionally stable and highly detailed plastics that closely resemble end products.


Stratasys J750 3D printer
(PolyJet. Build size: 490 x 390 x 200mm)

Designed for specialised applications, the J750 provides:

  • true full-colour capability with texture mapping
  • colour gradients to create prototypes that look, feel and operate like finished products.

Using high-performance materials:

  • rigid to flexible
  • opaque to transparent – and with minimal post-processing requirements

It enables the product development process to move along at high speed.

F170 and F370

F170 (FDM. Build size: 254 x 254 x 254mm), F370 (FDM. Build size: 355 x 254 x 355mm)

Built on 30 years of research and development, the Stratasys F-Series is the world’s most reliable range of industrial-grade 3D printers.

The systems versatility, intelligence, quality and affordability means we can produce:

  • fast, low-cost concept models
  • durable and repeatable assemblies.

The F123 Series works with up to five materials to produce complex parts with precision, while advanced features like Fast Draft mode and soluble support are designed to shorten lead times.

Fortus 380mc Carbon Fiber Edition

fortus380 carbon fiber
(FDM. Build size: 355 x 305 x 305mm)

This printer guarantees accurate, reliable, optimum-strength parts using ASA and Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber. A material boasting a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio than any of its rivals.

Incredibly light but tough, it is an engineering-grade thermoplastic that gives unparalleled strength. Used for dependable functional prototyping, end-use parts and rugged tooling, often replacing low-volume metal parts in the toughest applications.

Stratasys Carbon Fiber contains 35 per cent chopped carbon fibres, compared with the 15 per cent figure of its nearest competitor. This allows it to achieve 30 to 50 per cent higher density on finished builds. Those traits make it a popular choice for UAV components and tooling in aerospace. Other examples include bumpers, fixtures and brackets in automotive and transportation. Also included are general sporting goods and general manufacturing aids.

Fortus 450mc

Fortus 450mc - Doors Open 2
(FDM. Build size: 406 x 355 x 406mm)

Whether for jigs, fixtures, factory tooling, end-use parts or functional prototypes to withstand stringent testing. The Fortus range strikes the balance between print efficiency, detail and toughness.

These advanced systems can quickly produce accurate, reliable and high-strength components. The also benefit from using many of the engineering-grade thermoplastics typical in traditional manufacturing processes.

Complex, high-requirement part production means hardware, circuitry and other materials can be embedded into parts easily. Also high-capacity material options make for impressive unattended build times.


(FDM. Build size: 914 x 609 x 914mm)

Designed to handle the most demanding manufacturing needs. The Stratasys F900 offers the largest build size of any FDM system and is tailored specifically for heavy industries.

It uses a wide range of engineering-grade thermoplastics. Suitable for applications that require high performance, biocompatibility, static dissipation or resistance to impact, heat, chemicals or UV radiation, striking a balance between fine feature detail and fast build.

The F900 can create robust production parts, jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and functional prototypes.

Dual material bays and high-capacity material options means production can be scaled up quickly.
