Celtic3d Ltd. provides 3d modelling and 3d printing services.  We take your existing digital asset, CAD file or rough sketch and produce a physical model from your design.  We do the file preparation, where necessary thickening walls and fixing geometry to make the file printable.  We also sell our own designs as made-to-order products or, if you have access to a 3d printer, as files you can download and print yourself.

We believe that the main advantage of 3d printing is the ability to produce small quantities and unique items that would not be practical or economic otherwise.

Where we add value is in preparing the digital files for 3d printing.  Actually,  we go beyond 3d printing, it often makes sense to bring in other digital fabrication techniques, for example, laser-cutting and engraving sheet material where that would be more suitable.   While we do the file preparation and digital modelling work in-house,  we make use of a mix of leading online 3d printing and additive manufacturing services and local fabrication facilities to manufacture the parts.


Confidentiality is important when dealing with your prototype and design ideas.  Where appropriate, we can enter into a non-disclosure agreement with you and ensure we only use services for your project where there is a back-to-back confidentiality agreement in-place providing assurance over the proper handling of confidential material.


Our portfolio of past projects include:

  1. Scale architectural models where we can model the outside shape (mass) of the building, or show internal detail with lift-off sections and cutaways.
  2. Scale models of engineering equipment, including sub-sea equipment from your CAD files or drawings.
  3. One-off parts in functional materials (a range of plastics, resins, metals and even ceramics).

For more detail on past project, check our article on the architectural model we created for Charlie House.

Although not our main area of business,  our 3d modelling creates digital assets that are often useful for creating computer generated images.  We can texture and light your model to produce images or we can work with a 3d studio of your choice to give them a jump start to create images to visualise your design for screen or VR.  View a small sample of our 3d image portfolio.

If you have a digital asset or CAD file you would like to make physical, or you have an idea you want to prototype,  or would just like to discuss how we might help you explore 3d printing and digital fabrication, we would love to hear from you.  Reach us through the email or phone number above or via our contact form.
