The launch of 3D Hubs HD, makes it easy for designers to connect with industrial-grade 3D printers in their area. Approved Hubs that can deliver industrial-grade prints are awarded the ‘3D Hubs HD’ badge and will focus on direct communication with 3D Hubs customers for accurate production and fast turnaround times. Industry leaders including i.materialise, Sculpteo and NRI will be amongst the first group of service providers to make industrial-grade 3D printing locally available.
Similar to the existing 3D Hubs experience, ordering through 3D Hubs HD providers is as simple as uploading a 3D printable file and choosing a nearby Hub. “Through unlocking this tier of industrial-grade materials, we are now able to offer an end-to-end solution to our customers both large and small,” explains 3D Hubs co-founder Brian Garret. “By combining affordable desktop production with high-end industrial-grade services, the full spectrum of 3D printing is now becoming accessible.”
3D Hubs HD is highly-functional material, prevalent for both Product Designers and Architects and is 3D printed through the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) additive manufacturing process.
