Compared to the traditional manufacturing process, our 3D printing technology is built on high dimensional accuracy. It offers a cost-effective approach and speedy prototyping, so clients can share the preliminary design to us without 3D files but only need a physical object for us to do 3D scanning.

Wood/ MDF

Shaping all types of wood such as MDF, solid wood (i.e. oak, beech, ash wood), plywood is one of our specialisations. Our craftsmanship includes bending, shearing, CNC, sanding, grinding, varnishing, veneer application and more. Hence, you can tell us your expected results which we strive to achieve.


The common usage of wood in the industry is MDF, artificial wood, which is economical and made by the recycling process. Should you prefer a natural option, it will be solid wood which our team could handle the fumigation process and also export documents.
