At NU Creative we love exploring the benefits of innovative technology. We have invested in a dedicated 3D printer for the studio as part of a super-secret project.

Watching it work is mesmerising and has got us thinking about other ways our clients could incorporate 3D printing into their communications projects and pitch materials.

 

3D printed data visualisations

3D printing can make a talking point of your charts and data visualisations. They work well to highlight broad trends in data. The tactile aspect of the pieces helps make your point memorable.

3D printed data visualisations can be combined with flat data or charts.

3D printing makes making a small batch of highly customised promotional items possible. The turn-around times may be faster than you think. The design of giveaways can be entirely bespoke, rather than printing your logo on mass produced merchandise.

Complimentary media

As a fully integrated agency we are well placed to carry a 3D design or theme across a range of media. Motion graphics videos are a great way of doing this. The files we create for your 3D printed model can be imported into our motion graphics software and built upon. We can design your proposal microsite, pitch presentation or printed materials around your 3D concept. Paper or card folding models may be used in combination with 3D printing.
