Big Ideas 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 for 3D printing 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.
Our FDM solutions offer large build volumes up to 305 mm x 305 mm x 60 5mm in a variety of colours and production-grade thermoplastics, from ABS to Polycarbonate.Learn More
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.Learn More
The key difference between 3D Printing and CNC machining is that 3D Printing is a form of additive manufacturing while CNC machining is subtractive. This means that CNC machining starts with a blank block of material then cuts away material to create the finished part. There can be significant waste created through this process. 3D Printing creates a finished part by adding layers and produces little waste.Learn More
Large Scale Fiberglass Mould Making Solutions
Big Ideas can create various moulds using the latest manufacturing techniques from 3D printing to CNC milling.
The process of sand casting creates an object from molten material using sand as a mould. The mould’s cavities are created through compacting sand around a design pattern. This process can be simplified through 3D printing.Learn More
Injection mould making
Injection moulding is most commonly used to mass-produce plastic parts, ideal for producing very large numbers of identical parts with tight tolerances at great speed..Learn More
