Hello and welcome! 3DTHIS is a design company and an online store where you can purchase any of the products available throughout the website. All items are 3D printed in a range of solid and plated precious metals with the option to add engraving or even have your own bespoke piece designed and created.
The 3DTHIS website is an extension of the current Etsy online store, allowing me to have more control over the design and layout of the website. You won't find much of an online presence aside from this website, the Etsy store and the 3DTHIS social media accounts. This is solely down to me being a small business and being relatively new to the eCommerce world. That being said you can see the many reviews throughout the website or via the Etsy reviews page where I receive an overwhelming amount of positive feedback.
All products are designed in the UK on specialist 3D design software and are manufactured by Shapeways, a specialist 3D printing manufacturing company with factories in the US and the Netherlands. All products will ship directly from themselves to you, lowering overall shipping and production costs. Each product is made to order so manufacturing and delivery is approximately 2 - 3 weeks anywhere in the world. This also allows me to make modifications to the products such as engraving without effecting the delivery time for you.
3DTHIS – Ben
Meet The Designer & Creator
Hi! I'm Ben and I am the designer and creator of 3DTHIS.
I have worked for years on 3D CAD in the engineering industry but felt I just needed a more creative outlet. After 3D printing became more mainstream and the cost of manufacture came down I was able to turn ideas into actual products. This is where 3DTHIS was born.
I try to make designs that people will love, focusing on an almost geeky and gaming theme. Unlike the majority of the geeky and gaming products that exist though, I intend to make them to the highest quality in the best materials that I can. I love them and I hope you will too!
I'm an individual, not a faceless corporation so if you do have any questions please get in touch! I'll be more than happy to answer your questions or queries.
Given how 3DTHIS operates, custom work is a service I offer and undertake regularly. I specialise in jewellery predominantly, working on numerous custom designs including pendants, earrings, cufflinks and tie bars. I work with individuals on wedding gifts to international companies so I should be able to accommodate any needs or requirements you may have.
One of the most notable clients I have worked for is the company Roomba, designing a custom set of cufflinks and matching tie clip featuring the iconic Roomba design in sterling silver, as a parting gift for one of their employees. They were thrilled with the results and I hope I can create something special for you too.
Please get in touch with any requests or design ideas via the contact page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Roomba Cufflinks & Tie Clip Set
I take inspiration for a lot of my designs from the things that I love. I typically like to create clean and modern designs, keeping detail to a minimum. This ensures products come out looking beautiful and highly accurate to the design that I base them on.
All design work is completed using specialist 3D CAD technology in the United Kingdom which I specialise in within my professional life. Due to a number of years experience on it and a natural flair for all things tech, I am able to create just about anything I can imagine.
All products are 3D printed by Shapeways either in the United States or the Netherlands. This allows me to create truly unique designs that may not exist in traditional manufacturing. All items are made to the highest quality and individually hand checked and polished.
