Our 3D Printers are tremendously practical devices, capable of making many of the things we would normally go out and buy. Take the shower head for example, in a DIY store we may get to choose from 3 or 4 shower head designs, available in white possibly silver.
We’ll now you can choose from many of the designs on Thingiverse or create an entirely new design yourself.

Why not 3D Print your shower head to match your latest colour scheme.
Shower in technicolour
We’ve printed a few shower heads for you but would like to see what other household items you can come up with, the challenge is on!
Oh and please remember to ask yourself this question the next time your in a DIY Superstore, ‘Do I need to buy this or is this something I can 3D Print myself?

P.S. Now, is it a blue shower head day today or a red one? We’ve got to be the first to ask this question, which means either we’ve created a new ‘trend’ in Colour matched mood enhancing shower heads or there’s something more fundamental going on.
Of course, you could retweet Practical Magic and find out!
Check out the Personal 3D Printing initiative at Lockeed Martin
The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA’s biggest science project and the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer and the advanced MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer are speeding up the development process, enabling more design iterations and introducing significant cost savings.
Take the initiative with us and we’ll help you move forward into the future.

Plymouth University is embracing the very latest 3D Printing technology and we are pleased to say that our MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers are now an integral part of their design and architecture courses. If your lucky enough to be one of their students this year, be sure to make use of these Personal 3D Printers and watch your designs come to life.
3D Printing will enable us to print complex pre-assembled products in the not too distant future. These working wrenches, hot off our printer, need no assembly and demonstrate the potential of this World changing technology.

There are some great 3D scanners out there but most are expensive and processing/post processing can be very time consuming. MakerBot have put a great deal of effort into removing the complexities of scanning and have launched one of the most important innovations of this year, the MakerBot Digitizer.

One of the first questions a newcomer to 3D Printing will ask is ‘What can I do with it? All of us will have asked that question at some point but that question very quickly becomes ‘What can’t I do with it?’
The possibilities for 3D Printing are limitless, and we say limitless because 3D Printers will evolve as new demands come along. For the first time, our Personal 3D Printers give everyone and we really do mean everyone, the power to design and create products at a speed never before encountered and at a cost that would have been unbelievable even a year ago.
We want to make this technology available to you, whatever your interest, profession or calling. If you want one for the home and many of us do, you’ll find it the most exciting and rewarding investment you’ll ever make.
If you’d like to use it for training and education, its a wonderfully inspiring tool for Students and Teachers alike. Your 3D Printer can be up and running in less than 30 minutes and you can be ready to engage with your Students like never before.
If you need one for work, you’ll suddenly find the design and iteration process for a product reduce to a few days rather than months, it really is possible to create a number of revised prototypes in a single day!
Whatever your need, check out our online store from the link on the right and you’ll find a a selection of the very best Personal 3D Printers and 3D Printer Kits available for purchase.
So for endless possibilities, we really can just add You!
We are delighted to announce that the new Felix 2.0 3D Printer is now available for purchase at RepRap Central. Its been getting rave reviews and as a high res 3D Printer, it’s a welcome addition to our range.
