Established in 2007 and located halfway between London and Birmingham, 3DDC has become the reference point in high quality and high performance metal coating of 3D printed parts. They are a Tier 1 supplier in one of the most demanding environments: Formula 1.

The two motives that drive motorsport development, are weight reduction and advanced mechanical properties, which makes it the ideal field of application for 3DDC’s leading know-how in additive manufacturing and electroplating.

The decision of 3DDC to add the ProMaker P1000 to their 3D printing department is the first step in the process of building an ongoing relationship between our two companies.



“The Metalise it… process, developed in-house by the experts at 3DDC, takes 3D printed parts to a whole new level.”

Graham Barton, Managing director

“The ProMaker P1000 was an obvious choice for us to add to our 3D printing capacity. With the quality of the parts it can build, and the variety of SLS materials available from Prodways, the P1000 fits our criteria perfectly.”
Alex Michniak, General Manager


The ProMaker P1000 already proved to be one of the most versatile and powerful laser sintering printers in the industrial entry-level segment, and the fact that it met 3DDC’s high standards – making it the first Prodways SLS® printer to be installed in the U.K. – is another confirmation of the quality of Prodways additive manufacturing systems.
