3D Printing and working on an invention can take you all over the map, so why not find something that can give you invention help and clear directions? This segment I'm sharing my recent experience and frustrations trying to pursue something new with the 'trial and error' method which many inventors can relate to. Video [...]
As a leading 3d printing services provider in Canada for almost 20 years, we can tell you with certainty that the majority of inventors start with patents and prototypes well before they should. This can be a costly mistake and easily avoided by taking the right steps at the right time.
Being in 3d printing for almost 20 years, we seen a lot of NDA's and have found there are some common and simple to avoid errors when it comes to Non-Disclosure Agreements. If you have a few minutes, check out our newest post.
On this day October 21, 1985 (30 years ago) Marty McFly would have thought 3d printing to be nothing but a futuristic dream. Yet, here we are today! Although the movie was a fun look at what could be, many of the inventions either have been created or are actively being worked on. For example, [...]
When it comes to 3D printing, we can thank the media for creating misleading impressions on just what 3d printing is, what it can really do and whether you need it. This video is a segment we pulled from our Inventor Mentor series, but is helpful to anyone considering 3d printing (that is anyone who [...]
We are excited to share with you a new segment we'll be posting on YouTube every few weeks called Inventor Mentor, talking about invention help, 3d printing and answering your questions! Please check it out and let us know your questions.
We created this functioning 3d printed prototype for the Zelda Pump that was used for live testing. Created as a full scale prototype, it was tested pumping gallons of water in seconds without the use of hydro! Watch the video to see it in action.
We recently displayed our 3d printed lego tractor at a trade show that was a big hit! We made this Lego K'nex tractor with 720 individual 3d printed pieces using our SLS technology, nylon and our own developed post colouring process for the Toronto Design and Manufacturing Show. One of our technicians and his 7 [...]
Ok, now from the world of super cool-meets super high tech-meets super geek comes one of the greatest feel good stories ever! Alex Pring, a 7-year old boy born without a fully developed arm recently received a pretty awesome gift! A functioning 3-D Printed arm, fashioned after Ironman's suit. Central Florida students and graduates called [...]

Often 3D printing is sold as a process that can do almost anything and that anyone can [...]
