3D printing in China – ahead or behind

Many of the lower cost 3D printers are designed and made in China? That seems to be correct. So therefore the Chinese public in general and school kids in particular will be well versed in 3D printing, and more knowledgeable than youngsters in Europe? That’s what we...

Food Ink – the world’s first pop up 3D printing restaurant

This week has seen Food Ink, with the help of one of our 3D printers, launching a 3 day event in Shoreditch, a trendy area of East London. This event was a world first; London, even after Brexit, is still the centre of the world! 10 diners each evening paid to be part of this revolutionary experience. They sat on 3D printed stools. They sat at 3D printed tables. They used 3D printed cutlery. They also used VR goggles for one course (the goggles were not 3D printed – just part of the experience). Most importantly, the food was 3D printed. By world class chefs. Brought in from Spain. We were only there during the day, to see what was going on, how it was all done, admire the space and the set up, and of course to keep our By Flow 3D food printer company. It is called Focus.

Why IT IS 3D?

The one constant in our lives is change. But even change is changing. The rate of change is accelerating as new technologies are developed, many of which operate in conjunction with one another, underpinned by access to the internet, and developments in such areas as artificial intelligence and deep data.

IT IS 3D presents the impact of technology change in the form of workshops, talks and seminars, to enable organisations and individuals to understand their impact and plan accordingly. These events are tailored to the specific needs of each organisation, and depend on IT IS 3D’s profound understanding of disruptive technologies, usually aimed at corporates at schools and at colleges.

Events have been held across the UK, in France, India and China.

As well as workshops, IT IS 3D also offers bureau services in 3D printing, 3D designing and 3D scanning, and offers various 3D products, as well as robotic items for sale.

Why purchase from us?

With contacts around the world, IT IS 3D has sourced and chosen a small range of excellent products in 3D technologies and robotics. Developed both for educational and corporate usage, the products offer value for money, productivity and reliability.

IT IS 3D offers you training on site, to ensure that you have full understanding of the products you have purchased. A sale is not the end of the story; we are there for you to ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your purchase; we are always available at the end of the phone line or email to help you, whether you are delivering a  class or developing a new product.

Why use our workshops?

Why use our workshops?

The rate of change of technology is now so great that it is difficult to keep up to date with what is happening, never mind understand what the impact might be on your organisation, your employees, your pupils, or your students.

At IT IS 3D, we bring this information to you, and structure it such that you can assimilate the changes, and start to understand what the effects might mean in your particular case.

In corporations:
What are the technological changes that might impact your business?
What disruptive effects do you need to take into account?
How do you begin to plan for a future where you can be the disruptor rather than the disrupted?
We help organisations to understand the potential impact of disruptive change, and how to think about preparing for a future within which their business will inevitably be affected sooner or later.

In schools and colleges:
Students need to be aware of the way the world is changing. The job opportunities available to them today will not be the same as those awaiting them in their future.
They need to be taught the skills and technologies which will bring them the maximum opportunity for successful and enjoyable careers, while avoiding the traps that technological change will bring.
We present the students and their educators with information and stories about the way the world is changing, and how to adapt both teaching and IAG (careers’ advice) to give their students a great start in choosing and developing their future.

Some Clients

This is what some of our clients say:


“Martin and Trupti provided excellent workshops for our students which showcased the amazing impact of 3D printing technology. Our students were really stimulated by the broader technology context and the hands-on sessions. It was also great to see the machines in operation to appreciate how they work. “Just today one of my students approached me about setting up a 3D printing project inspired by Martin’s talk.

“We look forward to working with Martin and Trupti in the future.”
