Chris Guiver, a Business & Enterprise Management graduate (2021), created his business 3D Minis, in the same year as his graduation. The business provides a personalised 3D design printing service to its clients alongside its own in-house design range. For a fee, customers can upload their design specifications to the website, which is then printed in 3D form.
In addition to the variety of materials and colours available, 3D Minis also provides a significant range of model prototypes including toys, collectibles and costumes, for clients to choose from.
To support the reduction of carbon footprint, all the materials used by 3D Minis are fully recyclable, and this extends to packaging. 3D printing is an ecological, affordable, and easy option for manufacturing. It has the potential to create zero waste in the manufacturing process as it eliminates waste and the requirement for moulds. The energy cost for running a 3D printer is less than that required by a domestic fridge.
