A difficult and challenging year for many, at 3D Consulting we have been fortunate that our many clients have trusted us to deliver on their projects resulting in a record year for us in 2020.

Here we share with you the range of projects and challenges we faced during 2020.

At the end of March 2020, we launched our new website re branding to the 3D Consultancy.  Then COVID-19 lockdown hit and like many other businesses our sales dived.  The future looked bleak.  As we moved into May and June customer activity returned and as we continued to invest in our marketing activity, our sales also started to return.

Some of the projects we were working on in 2020:

We were working with a multi award winning cosmetic clinician on the development of a pain free, non-invasive and more affordable application of PRP (platelet rich plasma) for healthcare with initial specialisation on cell rejuvenation.

The deteriorating quality of the air we all breathe is a hot topic amongst environmentalists.  We have been working with a client to develop a fan system that can remove the smallest particulates from the air.  These particulates do significant damage to our lungs and brain and particularly those of young children.  In addition to removing particulates the system can also kill air borne viruses (like COVID 19).

High performance engineering and motorsport is where we started our careers.  During 2020 amongst other automotive projects we supported the design and manufacture of components for a new multi million pound hypercar to be launched in 2021.

We find working with start-up businesses really rewarding.  Working alongside entrepreneurs helping them not only with the development of their product ideas but also helping them to create new businesses.  In 2020 this has included working alongside technology spin-outs from UK Universities.

Our colleagues work with clients who are world champions.  We keep abreast of the latest developments, materials and processes helping our clients to embrace and exploit new technologies, materials and systems.

Additive manufacturing is a core expertise within our team and we have supplied our market beating Carbon SLS products to many clients and this has been a robust part of our 2020 business.

Sadly, not all of our clients have had a successful 2020.  As 2020 has progressed our clients in the events and hospitality industry have suffered, however we look forward to supporting them again later in 2021.

So, we end 2020 in a much stronger position than in 2019, with a stronger business, an expanded team of industry leading experts and with great optimism for the year ahead.

Thank you to all our customers, suppliers, colleagues and supporters during 2020 and we wish you all a safe and successful 2021.  Do get in touch if you want us to help you in 2021.
