MyPrintPod is a Portsmouth-based manufacturing-as-a-service that can take your ideas/designs and turn them into 3d printed components.
MyPrintPod is for small companies and individuals who need to produce limited numbers of products, tooling or prototypes quickly and who want to use sustainable manufacturing techniques.
We work with you to help sketch out your initial ideas
We create CAD models using our industrial design software
You can then visualise your design in augmented reality for approval
We then make your design on our latest generation of 3d printers
Finally we can deliver the parts to you, or you can pick then up
One of the main uses of 3d printing is the creation of tooling to help production processes. This can be as varied as custom jigs for holding pieces together, through to composite roller systems design to take large loads.
Sometimes organisations need to test an enclosure or a design. 3D printing allows different designs to be developed and tested easily before settling on the final design.
Sometimes a component is needed that can perform a particular function, like a bracket or or a cable clamp. 3D printing allows these parts to be made quickly as one off or limited runs very easily.
Finally 3d printing allows objects to be made that are made for their looks rather than performing a function. These can be as varied as company logos, props for film and tv or objects for hobbys such as wargaming.
Examples of how 3d printing can be utilised by small businesses and sole traders, please watch the videos below:
