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,
We strive to stay ahead of the technology curve to increase performance, accuracy and ease of use.
All of our systems are Dell One 2710s, with additional memory and SSDs for faster performance.
Professional Software Tools
Our workstations will have the latest software from Autodesk, Adobe, Trimble, Pixologic and other well known 3D print refinement tools
Hi-Res 3D Scanning
We can scan small and large objects with our table based laser scanners and Xtion multi-camera 3D scanner.
Our prices are very competitive with on-line 3 D print services without the long turnaround times and non-existent support.
Most objects will be ready for pickup the same day. For very complex or larger objects we can have them ready for next day service. If you want it delivered we charge a flat low-priced courier fee.
Our staff has over 10 years experience in 3D design and printer technology.
Come to one of our four hour weekend training classes for beginning and seasoned 3D designers looking to update their skill set.
Create an environment that allows you to take an idea and turn it into reality by providing you the highest quality 3D object creation tools at a very competitive price.
Always available support, that is a (quiet) shout away so you don't have to repeat the same mistakes we did and save yourself time and money.
Fast turnaround so that you can literally walk out with most printed objects in less than an hour. Worst case, drop off or upload your design and pick it up the next day.
To teach you how to use the latest in 3D software and hardware.
