If you are interested in 3D printing, then why not follow our progress on Facebook as we build and test the 3D printer from Ultimaker.
This is the latest in the ongoing development of our new gearbox designs, using 3D printing to produce the gearbox cases. Using our own in-house 3D printer gives us greater design flexibility and faster turn around times from the initial design concept to finished product. Along with the ability to design and produce our own gears, means that we can create custom gearboxes if required along with any standard gearbox range that we may produce. To read about the rest of our developments so far click on 'Read More' link below.
