Complete 3D has the capability to produce 3D printed prototypes and functional parts for most industries in New Zealand.
When most people think of 3D printing, they visualise a simple desktop printer, but 3D printing encompasses many technologies and materials including metal, fabrics and bio.
Complete 3D provides a holistic solution scaled to fit your business. We have a robust supply chain, expertise in product design and file optimisation, and New Zealand’s leading range of printers and software. We give you end-to-end fulfilment from prototype to scaled manufacturing to training.
As it evolves, 3D printing technology is destined to transform almost every major industry and change the way we live, work, and play.
Here are a few of the industries we serve.
From film to entertainment, go to market faster with the confidence and quality of an optimized, tested product and discover how the right tools work for you, your customer, and your bottom line. Printed prototypes are also very common in the arts, animation and fashion studies as well.
3D printing has been on the periphery of the fashion world. Aspiring designers have long been trying to leverage its potential. Designers are making tools that can shake up the production and retail system. Looking around, one can see the growth of 3D printed fashion.
Complete 3D’s team delivers expert scanning, design and manufacturing teams to leverage movie FX, prop and figurine design, production, mass manufacturing and marketing of licensed property.
The maker revolution is taking the jewellery industry by storm. Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing have opened up an entirely new realm of creativity for jewelers who want to try something new. 3D printers are great for making trinkets and tiny add-ons for our daily lives. Jewelry printing is perhaps the best example of this. This is another niche within 3D printing. Our 3D Printers are ideal for creating the wax molds one uses to produce jewellery.
3D printing is challenging traditional production processes in the jewellery industry. The perfect meld between fashion and technology, it gives a new meaning to the term 'wearable tech'
Dental & Healthcare
Capable of rendering a wide range of oral appliances, models and more, additive manufacturing is poised to take off in dentistry.
- Replace or repair a damaged tooth: The dentist scans the patient’s mouth with a small digital wand. This creates a 3D image of the teeth and gums, which is saved as a computer file. Computer Aided Design (CAD) software enables the dentist to digitally design the tooth repair and print the finished product on a 3D printer.
- Create an orthodontic model: Pre-3D printer technology includes having the patient bite down on gooey, uncomfortable clay so it could harden into a mold, which becomes the initial model for designing a treatment for braces or Invisalign. This is not so with 3D printing. A dentist can use the same technology highlighted in the first example to scan the teeth, design an orthodontic appliance and print the end result in-house.
- Produce crowns, bridges, caps, dentures and more: The same process outlined above can be used to 3D print all kinds of dental implants. The only difference is the precise material used in the printing process.
- Construct surgical tools: Not only can 3D printers handle the dental implants themselves, but they can also 3D print the drill guides needed to complete certain dental procedures.
From the inventors of LCD 3DPrinting, the Photocentric LC Opus delivers fast, highly accurate prints, suitable for dental and orthodontic industries and applications. As the name suggests, LC Opus enables you to create works of art right from the start!
Industrial Design & Manufacturing
From robotics and automation to agritech, Complete 3D offers industry-leading production solutions to deliver unprecedented productivity in manufacturing supply and value chains.
It is predicted by some additive manufacturing advocates that this technological development will change the nature of commerce, because end users will be able to do much of their own manufacturing rather than engaging in trade to buy products from other people and corporations.
3D printers capable of outputting in colour and multiple materials already exist and will continue to improve to a point where functional (electronic) products will be able to be output. With effects on energy use, waste reduction, customization, product availability, medicine, art, construction and sciences, 3D printing will change the manufacturing world as we know it. We are shaping the future.
Educators and students have long been using 3D printers in the classroom. 3D printing enables students to materialize their ideas in a fast and affordable way. 3D printer manufacturers have taken up a more direct role in education.
Companies often undertake programs to promote technologies. These programs serve as a cheaper way for schools to make 3D printers available for use in classes. In terms of prototyping, many university programs are turning to printers. There are specialisations in additive manufacturing one can attain through architecture or industrial design degrees.
Whether mastering 3D digitization and design or critical aspects of manufacturing, surgery and more, students equipped with real world skills are real world ready. We are shaping the future.
Thorough, innovative design and engineering requires precise, reliable technology solutions.Car manufacturers, restorers and repairers have been utilizing 3D printing for a long time. Automotive industry experts only expect the use of additive manufacturing technologies to grow in the coming years. Companies are using it to produce not just parts, but tools and fixtures.
Audi is using 3D metal printing to produce spare parts. They are in the midst of basically disrupting their own supply chain by printing spare parts on demand with a metal printer.
Even though large-scale manufacturers are the dominant users of 3D printing, other types of automobile enthusiasts are making their mark as well. Motorcar engineers all over the world are using printed parts to restore old cars. One such example is when Australian engineers printed out parts to bring a delage Type-C back to life. In doing so, they had to print parts that were out of production for decades and they succeeded.
Complete 3D’s end-to-end solutions for automotive design, prototyping and production help automakers pioneer in the fast lane. We are shaping the future.
