We maintain a growing fleet of 3D printers which are set up to be able to print in a number of filaments including PLA, ABS, ASA, Nylon, TPU and other specialty filaments.

Our flagship printers are our two Markforged machines, a Mark 2 and Onyx One. The Mark 2 is capable of printing functional parts from Markforged’s proprietary “Onyx” nylon/carbon fibre blend, and is capable of reinforcing the parts with continuous fibreglass, kevlar or carbon fibre. This can result in parts being produced that have a strength equivalent to an Aluminium part.

We also have 6 Prusa Mk3s+ machines, a resin machine and will be very soon adding to this capability with 2 more printers from Bambu Labs which will further increase our capability.

This range of machines provides us with the opportunity to print in a number of materials, and at a number of price points. For our automotive parts we typically utilise ASA due to its UV resistance and tolerance to the temperatures often found in cars when parked in the sun, however we can source a wide range of materials to suit a specific requirement.

Through a constant re-investment process we are regularly improving the range of equipment available to manufacture our products and have recently included a Mosaic Palette 2, MMU units for the Prusa machines, and the Bambu Labs X1C with AMS unit which enables multiple colour or material prints to be produced. This unit also enables Nautia Engineering to utilise the remnants of our material spools by enabling us to join short lengths of filament together rather than throwing them away.
