COVID-19 Update

We Need your Help!

Makers around the country like myself, have joined forces in an attempt to mass produce face shields for medical professionals to keep them safe during this time. Various medical supplies are in high demand and short supply. We have growing pledge of 83 machines that have begun manufacturing to supply the 3,000 face shield requests and rising. This has become known as the Shields Up Project.

Donations for the Shields Up Project can be made through the givealittle page we created.

If you have available services you could contribute, and want to join, sign up here.

If your a medical professional in need of shields, lodge a request here.

Were Still Operating. Fortunately I am based out of our home workshop, and well stocked with materials to continue any 3D printing endeavors. Whilst we are keeping well isolated, we welcome any enquirers via email which will be answered in between assisting our son with his first year school work online. Unfortunately shipping is not possible for non essential items.

Take care, stay safe

3Duke Engineering is simply the best 3D printing service. They helped me out enormously to bring my creation to a reality. While also producing my model in a matter of days under pressure. A novice myself, they guided and supported me by giving me suggestions to help my model become a reality. 3Duke Engineering provides great communication and helps you out each step of the way, from start to delivery. I will definitely use them again and cannot wait to get my next model printed. I highly recommend 3Duke Engineering.
