3DUKE Engineering 3D Printing Richard


My name is Richard Duke and I’m a 3D print-o-holic

3D printing for me started back in 2013 when the topic about the rapid progression of this technology found its way into one of my many office water cooler conversations. A few hours of post conversation Google investigation later I hastily made my first 3D printer purchase and have never looked back since!

What they're saying...

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.
