In today’s market place, design is the one thing that sets products apart and provides the competitive edge required for success.

Design perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery    

Quality can’t be inspected into a part; quality must be designed


The secret to reducing manufacturing costs by up to 33% in fabricated and cast components. Our 9 Step Morphogenesis™ process will show you how you can optimise your product for weight and performance by using the latest technology to ensure it is Technically Brilliant - Efficiently Producible - Easily Sellable. 

Finite Element Analysis - FEA

Efficiently validate each design using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to reduce iterations and time to market. FEA can also help predict where faults/stress may occur which can then be rectified in the design phase. 

Priority Rocket™

Our Priority Rocket™ process will show you how to capture your customer’s requirements and link them to engineering requirements. Good industrial design will ensure that a product stands out from its competitors, is a pleasure to use, and that it aligns with a company’s brand. 

How we do it

3D Hub has a handheld, portable 3D scanner that scans a real-world object to collect data on its shape. We also have a desktop 3D printer with a 100 micron layer resolution and a build volume of 410 cubic inches. This makes it perfect for printing out scale models of product concepts for use in research or meetings with clients.

The challenge was to design all the complex functionality into a space that is shorter than the original HVAC unit and to integrate the reusable components such as fans, sensors, servo motors, airflow flaps etc. 


Our happy clients

We have worked with 3D Hub for over four years now and are delighted with the work carried out so farAll project work needs to be of the highest quality, which is what we get with 3D Hub. 3D Hub understands the high standards that our company have and are efficient in delivering within time limits. I would highly recommend working with them.”

Our happy clients

I am pleased to recommend Craig Russell and his team from 3D Hub, whom we have had the pleasure to collaborate with on the 2014 Silverado Conversion project.....

I am happy to recommend 3D Hub Limited to anybody that asks, confident that they will experience the same satisfaction in service that I have.

Our happy clients

“Having been unimpressed with previous experiences with 3D scanning and surfacing, I was reluctant to use the process again. However, Craig was adamant that 3D Hub's reverse engineering process would deliver the results I needed. We have now had several products scanned and couldn't be happier. We will definitely use 3D Hub for our 3D scanning needs in the future.”
