About Us

All about the technology

For both Howard and Stu the technology and its incredible potential is what ignites the passion and drove them to create 3D Printing Studios. Having both previously owned and ran small 3D Printing businesses they recognised that the time was right for a new concept, so they joined forces. "Other providers hide the technology away behind factory walls with only a website or phone linking its potential with the customer and what they need, 3D Printing Studios on the other hand is making it accessible to everyone." Stu said. By allowing anyone to see it in action, learn about it, play with the parts and emerse themselves in it, ideas are born and ideas are realised. That's the beauty of 3D Printing Studios, it's accessible to everyone and with more and more studios opening even more people will benefit from this once in a generation technology shift.
