Welcome to slo 3D creators

We are your one-stop location for designing, developing and creating 3D objects with a variety of 3D printers and scanners, along with a line of accessory products for the Occitpital Structure Sensor and Apple iPhone.

Latest Technology

We strive to stay ahead of the technology curve to increase performance, accuracy and ease of use.

Fast Workstations

All of our systems are Dell One 2710s, with additional memory and SSDs for faster performance.

Hi-Res 3D Scanning

We can scan small and large objects with our table based laser scanners and Structure Sensor 3D scanner and Next Engine HD.

Professional Software Tools

Our workstations will have the latest software from 3D Coat, Autodesk, Adobe, Trimble, Pixologic and other well known 3D print refinement tools


Decent Pricing

Our prices are very competitive with on-line 3 D print services without the long turnaround times and non-existent support.

Fast Turnaround

Most objects will be ready for pickup withing 24 hours.  For very complex or larger objects can be fabricated 48 - 72 hours depending upon the amount of cleanup and prep.  If you want it delivered we charge a flat low-priced courier fee.

Expert Help

Our staff has over 10 years experience in 3D design and printer technology.

In-depth Training

Come to one of our four hour weekend training classes for beginning and seasoned 3D designers looking to update their skill set.
