3d printing was often proved to be a great technology for manufacturing special prizes, trophies and cups presented for special achievements. Not only because of many design possibilities and material combinations but also because they can be manufactured at affordable prices.
An example of a prize we made is ‘Zlata piščal’ which is presented every year in Slovenia to four music artists who are nominated for best music artist of the past year and one award for a lifetime achievement.
Keeyper is a simple gadget for storing and keeping your keys organized. It stores up to 12 keys. Because of the loop on the edge you can also use keeyper as a keychain and have keys always at your reach.

On the 18th of May american ambassador Lyinda C. Blanchard honoured us with the visit in our company. We talked a bit about 3D printing technology and of course about printing of protective equipment, especially our 3D printed face shields. US Embassy also bought 1660 units of our shields and donated them to the nursing homes around Slovenia.
As a protocol gift for Mrs. Blanchard we printed a model of a local statue called “Gorjanka”.
We are currently manufacturing face shields. We developed the shield in collaboration with The Ajdovščina Civil Protection Unit and several of them are now in use at multiple dental clinics. Here are a few specifications:
low profile (at the bottom part it doesn’t “stick” out and so it doesn’t obstruct the work)
the transparent part is made of polished polycarbonate
can be used in combination with protective glasses
comfortable for long time wearing (fixed with two elastics -> doesn’t press on your head)
quality materials (PET-G and PC)
it protects from aerosols
easy to disinfect and clean
Price of one unit is 10€ VAT included.

Thanks to 3D printing, we can manufacture a variety of different products, including toys,
souvenirs, spare parts, and even protective masks. This is our contribution towards fighting
the virus that has affected our lives in the last couple of weeks. The Ajdovščina Civil
Protection Unit invited us to collaborate in the project of printing reusable protection masks,
which are currently in prototype phase. We received a 3D file that needed a few corrections
and, pronto, the mask was ready for printing! Of course, the mask has to be complete with a
suitable filter to be safe for use. The printing of such masks requires extreme caution, since
such products have to be reliable and adequately tested; to this end, our mask will undergo
tests at a company in Ajdovščina, Slovenia.
It is important to note, however, that masks, produced with 3D printing are merely a
makeshift solution in case of mask shortage, which, we hope, will never take place.
In addition to masks, 3D printing allows us to produce protection face shields. We are
currently printing the first series of the model, developed by the Czech company Prusa,
which, if proved suitable, will be produced following the demand for the same.
In December we started printing and selling a new souvenir of which we are very proud – a replica of the fairy tale train that drives tourists through Postojnska cave. The train is composed of many small details and colours, so the designing process was very challenging but the final product is therefore so much more rewarding. We are very excited to finally present you the train in 3D shape!
Are you selling souvenirs? Would you like to offer a good quality, one of a kind souvenirs to your visitors? You can contact us, tell us your wishes and we will do our best and make something special just for you.
We make souvenirs with 3d print technology so in that case we don’t have any big costs with manufacturing tools.
Also – we use biodegradable plastics from european manufacturers with certificates.
Prototypes are great for testing the ergonomics of the product. If we use the advanced materials and technologies for printing we can also test the mechanical characteristics of it.
We offer 3D print using a variety of advanced materials. One of them is a material that handles temperatures of +280°C heat and elevated pressures. In addition, we have flexible, rubber-like material and resins, which we print into material to look like polypropylene.
The pictures below show two products that have mechanical characteristics similar to ABS. We used the product in the first picture to make soft jaws for a CNC milling machine and the other two for testing the ergonomics and production strength of the parts in the electrical connection.
To achieve the exact characteristics of the above materials, we improve 3D printed products under 405nm UV light.
Some of our prototypes are of smaller dimensions and have finer details printed on them. In this case, we use a SLA 3D printer. If necessary, we print the item in a 0,025mm resolution, which means that every vertical millimetre of 3D print is composed of 40 layers. At this resolution, the individual layers cannot be seen with bare eye.
An example of this kind of 3D print is this connector in the pictures below.
3D print allows us to produce items with no extra costs or tools such as tools for injection of plastic. The operational principle of 3D print consists of adding material layer after layer and if we look closely at the printed object, we can see those layers with our bare eyes. In most cases these visible layers are not problematic, but sometimes costumers prefer prints that look as close as possible to the original. In that case, we need to extra process the prints with sanding, polishing and/or colouring. An example of this kind of product is this replica of Neanderthal flute. The Neanderthal flute is the oldest known musical instrument ever found in the world and it was made by aNeanderthal man who used a cave bear bone to make it. The flute was discovered in 1995 in Slovenia. We are proud to say that we print the flute replica sold as a souvenir at the National History Museum of Slovenia.
