This is another great milestone for me and for Z-Azis 3D. The last milestone of 100 orders earned us the status of “Professional Hub”. However for me a more important milestone is imminent. I have received my 99th review, and it is a positive one. I am eagerly awaiting my Century. I try to provide[…]
This is possibly one of my favourite prints ever. Modelled by Thomas aged 9 from Guildford, England. It came to me by way of a 3D Hubs order and during communications with Chris, the customer, it emerged that this was modelled in tinkercad by his 9 year old son for a school project. I was blown away. See[…]
It’s been a year and a half since the I asked a 3D Hub in Cologne to print a lock for me and install it on Hohenzollern Bridge as a gesture for my aniversary. This is how it all started, with a message to fellow 3D Hub -my3dprinting.ninja’s Hub… On Tue, 2014-09-23 13:34 Greg commented: Hello fellow[…]
For those with software development or IT backgrounds Stack Overflow will be a familiar name. They have become the ubiquitous site for questions and answers on all things software and computer related. However since it’s inception, Stack Exchange has branched into many other areas from photography, robotics and Lego to Philosophy, Mythology and[…]
Ask most people what 3D printing is good for and prototypes, bespoke items and repairs will probably feature most highly. There is another use which is less mentioned; but no less interesting or important: local manufacturing. Also referred to as distributed manufacturing, this is changing the way supply chain works. But what does that mean and why the[…]
I was at my computer designing when the news broke and the scale of the terror attacks Paris unfolded. Since Friday night some have expressed dissatisfaction with the proliferation of French flags all over social media, saying that if we feel such solidarity with the French over an attack in Paris, we should feel equally shocked and[…]

Don’t worry we won’t be stepping on Disney’s toes here, but a few weeks back when it was particularly warm outside, we had an order for Fairphone’s Snowflake Case. The customer stuck with a theme and ordered it in Glacial Blue by Faberdashery which we list on our 3D Hub. It was a great choice.[…]
If asked to choose a material to get a great finish I think I would choose Faberdashery’s “Robot Silver” every time. Something about the metallic finish that hides the print layering and they just come out really great. Textures pop and smooth areas don’t even look printed. This was printed on our Ultimaker 2 at a[…]
WOW MOM Clever..we like this, because she is. MOM Gimbal – Print In Place A nice rework for the print-in-place Gimbal. Elephant Mother and Child But our absolute favourite for it’s simplicity and beauty… Happy mother’s day!
About Z Axis 3D
With 20 years of experience in manufacturing, engineering design and technology we are well placed to maximize the oportunities that 3D Printing has brought. We are somewhat evangelical abut 3D printing and local manufacturing in general.
It's not all we do, but it certainly has changed the way we do it
3D modelling and design guidance with ease of 3D printing in mind
We are able to scan large objects and people , contact us to discuss your needs.
We love to share what we are doing and talk to anyone about the latest advances in 3D printing
