Service Bureaus & Fab Labs

Laser cutting, creation and machining of small models or series, and 3D printing: three key applications of Fab Lab and other numerical and collaborative manufacturing methods. Rapid prototyping (2D or 3D) is at the heart of the creation process. Type3 participates in 'Do It Yourself' and encourages innovation and creation by offering innovative, versatile and comprehensive solutions.

Several solutions are available:
- TYPE EDIT or LASERTYPE  CAD/CAM Solutions for Marking, Cutting, Engraving on Milling or Laser CNC machines.
- 3SHAPER, for full-3D modeling, Sculpture and Retopology (Surface reconstructions, Reverse Engineering); ideal for 3D Printers.
- TYPE3-CAA, for the creation of your Engravings (on texts, logos, serial numbers, legal information, etc) directly inside CATIA.
