In October, CREAT3D will be featuring a number of specialist desktop 3D printers at the Engineering Design Show, at the Jaguar Exhibition Hall in the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.


The event runs from Wednesday 21st to Thursday 22nd October 2015 and CREAT3D will be providing free consultations and advice for appropriate 3D printing applications for your business, on stand G42.


As the UK's leading specialist, we will be showcasing a selection of our hand-picked 3D printers offering different tools to suit different design, engineering and manufacturing applications, across a breadth of industries, from Oil & Gas, Electronics and Aerospace to Defence, Energy and Automotive.


Our range of desktop 3D printing equipment is providing low-cost options to enhance product design and development processes, as well as benefitting manufacturing and production through the creation of one-off components, tools, jigs, fixtures and moulds.


Some of the printers on show include:


Xeed by Leapfrog. Its dual-head and ability to print in PLA, ABS and soluble support make it well suited for creating complex geometries in product development.


Mark One Composite 3D Printer produces Nylon based parts that can be reinforced with Carbon Fibre, Fibreglass or Kevlar, presenting very high strength, functional 3D printed parts, for working prototypes or jig & fixtures production. You can also embed other components such as sensors and electronics during the print process.


MakerBot Replicator Z18 has a very large build size and good surface finish, alongside features such as a networking capability and automatic filament detection. The Z18 is a versatile 3D printer for prototyping and design applications.


UP Box is an ABS specialist desktop 3D printer, well placed for engineering and electronic applications requiring more detailed parts and a higher-post processing temperature for form, fit and function testing.

Our team of experts will be available from 10.00 to 17.00 (please note the show finishes at 16.00 on the Thursday).  We invite visitors to bring examples of parts they may wish to 3D print and will be offering free consultations to discuss the feasibility of incorporating desktop 3D printing into existing processes. 


If you have any questions prior to the show or would like a free test print, please email your request to with your name and contact details to arrange a consultation.
