Celtic Design, Clan Crests and Scottish tradition

About Us

Celtic3d is a small business based in Aberdeen, Scotland providing 3d modelling services and producing products of Scottish and Celtic design.  

With any innovative technology, it is important to understand the inherent characteristics that can create advantage.  For 3d printing, we believe advantage lies with the ability to produce unique, customized items.

Celtic3d's 3d modelling and 3d print services can take your cad file, paper plans or sketches and turn your ideas into physical objects in a range of materials.  This includes architectural models and maquettes, as well as product prototypes and custom models to your specifications.

We also produce our own designs.  We are working through the list of Scottish Clans  designing and modelling the clan crests.  Remaining faithful to the official heraldic descriptions, while also devising options that allow you to personalize.  Browse our 3d design shop for our range of made-to-order products and downloadable designs.

We are always looking for ideas and inspiration to add to our growing portfolio,  if you have an idea we could create,  we would love to hear from you.

How it works

Our philosophy is to build as much of our business as possible online.  We make use of cloud computing,  IT automation and links to online 3d printing services to put together a virtual, online factory.  

The advantage for you is that we can access the widest possible range of materials (including plastics, metals and ceramics) and industry-leading manufacturing techniques to bring you unique products of the highest quality and finish.  

Your items are made-to-order.  Delivery times vary per material and, for online purchases, these are made clear during checkout.   A production and shipping time of around 15 days is typical.  For our modelling services, delivery times and prices vary depending on the complexity of the model.  We provide a quotation, along with a delivery date commitment, specific to your requirements. 

For Makers that have access to their own 3d printer,  we offer many 3d printer files for download, some of them for free.  We don't upload our models to any of the online market-places so here is the only place you can (legitimately) get your hands on these models.
