Introducing In-House 3D Printing for Businesses

Innovation and adaptability are the keys to success in today's ever-evolving business landscape. As businesses continue to seek new ways to streamline operations and provide value to their clients, The Engine House, a business centre in the Bexley, is making a significant leap forward by adopting in-house 3D printing technology. This bold move not only showcases our commitment to staying at the forefront of technology but also offers our members a powerful tool for prototyping and production. In this article, we'll explore how our venture into in-house 3D printing is set to revolutionise the way our members operate.

The Engine House's Vision

The Engine House has long been a hub for innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship in the Bexley. Our state-of-the-art facilities, supportive community, and business-centric services have earned us a reputation as an excellent co-working space. Now, with the addition of in-house 3D printing capabilities, we are taking our commitment to fostering creativity and innovation to a whole new level.

  1. Rapid Prototyping

One of the most significant advantages of having 3D printing in-house is the ability to rapidly prototype ideas. Businesses can now bring their concepts to life within hours, allowing for quicker iterations and reducing the time-to-market. This agile approach to product development can be a game-changer, particularly for start-ups and small businesses looking to compete in fast-paced markets.

  1. Customisation and Personalisation

The Engine House's 3D printing capabilities empower our members and external businesses to create highly customised and personalised products. Whether it's personalized promotional items, bespoke prototypes, or unique components for a project, 3D printing allows for a level of customisation that was previously difficult or costly to achieve.


  1. Cost Efficiency

Outsourcing 3D printing services can be expensive and time-consuming. By offering in-house 3D printing, The Engine House is providing a cost-effective solution to its members. Businesses can save on shipping costs, production delays, and markups typically associated with outsourcing.

  1. Collaborative Environment

The collaborative environment at The Engine House becomes even more dynamic with the addition of 3D printing. Members can brainstorm, design, and create prototypes within the same space, fostering creativity and collaboration among entrepreneurs and professionals from various industries.

  1. Access to Expertise

The Engine House doesn't just provide 3D printing equipment; they also offer access to experts and training sessions for AutoDesk & Adobe. Members can take advantage of workshops and guidance to harness the full potential of 3D printing technology, even if they are new to it.
