About Us


Big Ideas 3D Printing is a small, rapid-prototyping company based in Alrode South. We were established in 2013 and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in cutting-edge and traditional manufacturing. Shorten manufacturing time by outsourcing urgent work in plastics and steels.

We can do most volume runs using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) and a variety of materials including ABS plastic, polycarbonate and nylon, stainless steel, titanium, rubber and many more. The materials we use are designed for use in various fields, from the design sector all the way through to the industrial sector, from prototypes to end-use parts.


Plastic 3D printing

This is done with Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is a 3D printing technology widely known for its speed, accuracy, and competitive cost.

Metal 3D printing

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an additive manufacturing technique that uses a carbon dioxide laser fired into a magnesium substrate to sinter powdered material (typically metal), aiming the laser automatically at points in space defined by a 3D model, binding the material together to create a solid structure.
