3D Printing throughout North Wales
We are working towards creating a Sustainable 3D Printing & Plastic Recycling Centre and Mobile 3D Printing Studio.
Our goal is to provide educational sustainable 3D printing workshops throughout North Wales, and to provide a 3D printing centre for the benefit of the community and businesses. Our workshops are ideal for all ages and abilities, learn to design and print your very own 3D model.
We also want to inspire a new generation of young makers to become active leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). With our Mobile 3D Printing Workshop we will be able to teach and provide services in Schools & Communities.
Using a range of free software, materials and plans, owning and operating your very own 3D Printer will not only be affordable, but good for helping to clean up local communities and the environment and we will teach you how you can set-up your own plastic recycling workshop.
Explore and develop an interest in 3D Printing.
Our 3D Printing workshops are ideal for all ages and abilities, and great for encouraging team work.
Learn how to use simple design software to create and print your very own 3D model which you can take away.
Register below to come and spend some time in our 3D Printing Centre in Rhyl and to find out about our mobile 3D printing workshops.
Join us for the complete 3D Printing Experience. We will give you everything you need to get up and running, including the 3D Printer.
With our 1 or 2 day workshop we will help you build your very own 3D Printer, teach you how to use it and show you how to print off your own 3D parts to customise it – making it even better.
This workshop is perfect for your first steps into 3D printing in a fun and affordable way. Register below to find out when places become available.
We produce our own 3D Printing Filament and use biodegradable materials.
Our Workshops will help students understand the importance of recycling plastics and encourage them to recycle, and how they can set-up their own plastic recycle workshop.
As a Plastic Workshop we regularly collect discarded plastics, our reward programme will encourage everyone to collect discarded plastics to get some free time in our 3D Printing Centre.
If you would like to attend one of our 3D Printing courses, sessions or workshops, register below to receive e-mails when we release new information. Follow us on facebook.com/G2GCommunitiesCIC and join us in our 3D Printing Facebook Group – facebook.com/groups/G2G3DPrinting.
Practical Uses of 3D Printing
You can create almost everything from smartphone cases to paper towel holders, prototypes for your business, reduce household expenses while adding personal customised touches to your home. You can print practically any household objects including storage containers, shower curtain rings, a new shower head and safety razors.
Creating 3D objects on demand requires no additional machines or special tools, create as many items as you desire with minimal effort. Making things rather than buying them reduces transportation and fuel, a 3D Printer can pay for itself by printing things you would ordinarily buy.
Attend our complete 3D printing experience workshop, where you will build a 3D Printer to take home with you, and we will teach you how to print your own 3D components to make it even better!
3D Printing is Great for Education
Using 3D printers can add a new dimension to learning that really engages, making education fun and interesting, we want to inspire a new generation of young makers. Our 3D Workshops are fun, creative, and give our students the skills to prepare for the future, expect to see the UK Space Agency 3D Printing parts for space stations and Doctors printing limbs for surgery.
Why not 3D Print some educational materials for School, such as topographic maps, atoms, planets, puzzles or tools, creating 3D objects is not only fun, it’s educational.
Thingiverse is a thriving design community for discovering, making, and sharing 3D printable objects, check out the Thingiverse Education website below where you can download free 3D models to print.
Some Facts & Information about our Sustainable 3D Printing
Why Sustainable 3D Printing?While we are ambassadors of innovation and technology, we want to provide it in a way that’s good for our planet. We are always looking for ways to become more sustainable, encourage plastic recycling, reduce waste and be better to our environment.
We have built a plastic extrusion machine to produce our own 3D printing filament from collected recyclable materials, not only is discarded plastic a free resource for everyone, it’s great for helping clean-up local communities and the environment! The best bit is – anyone can make their own plastic workshop, all the plans we use are freely available.
Our 3D Printers use recycled or biodegradable materials, such as PLA print filament, PLA products biodegrade within 3-6 months in a composting system. PLA is produced from food material, which means it’s also friendly to the environment.
Why Create 3D Printing Services?
It ties in really well with who we are and our focus in promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics (STEAM), giving the skills to prepare a new generation for the future. 3D printing can be used for all sorts of things, such as in Aerospace, Art, Designing a Prototype, Engineering, Hobbies, Home, Product Design, Primary, Secondary Education and so much more.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you’re attending one of our workshops or 3D printing centre, then we have you covered – you don’t need anything. Though, feel free to bring your own laptop as you can get started designing your 3D plans on it, you’ll also find it easier with a mouse.

We are trying to purchase more mobile friendly 3D Printers to go into Schools and Communities. Also we hope to add more equipment to our 3D Printing Education Centre to provide facilities to Schools, the Community and Businesses. We also want to create a ‘Hackspace’ for people to come and meet, learn, socialise, and collaborate on projects. Perhaps you can help?
