Thought3D, the 3D printer and printing startup, based at the University of Malta’s TAKEOFF Business Incubator, has launched its 3D printing service just months after its inception.

 

The service offers individuals and companies the opportunity to create a one-off item to use perhaps as a unique gift, or as a prototype, for an art project, a  book or album cover, for as little as €60.

 

“We have created our own printer and have a handheld scanner which enables us to scan almost any item,” said Keith M. Azzopardi, co-founder, Thought3D. “You can scan your baby, your pet, your favourite ornament or even room and make a scale model of it.”

 

“The technology allows us to offer this service to create spare parts for toys, original jewellery, props for theatre and film as well as marketing and advertising agencies,” added Edward Borg. “A number of sizes and colours are available, the only limitation is your imagination.”

About Thought 3D

 

The start-up, Thought3D, located at the University of Malta’s TAKEOFF business incubation centre, focuses heavily on product development in the 3D printing industry.

 

Thought3D has recently launched its services branch and is quickly becoming Malta’s 3D printing hub, offering 3D scanning and printing services as well as resale of various 3D printing items.

 

Thought3D is also developing its own 3D printer which aims to tackle the major limitations in current 3D printing equipment, coupled with other ancillary products. One such ancillary product is a paste to be applied on the printing surface making prints adhere firmly, significantly reducing the chance of ruined/failed prints. The paste then releases once the print is completed and the bed has cooled down. The paste which has been developed will be the first to be optimized for the two main types of filaments/plastics used in FFF printing (the most common type of 3D printing).
