    3D Printers\Scanners - Recommended UK Suppliers/Manufacturers

    Can anyone recommend a UK based manufacturer or supplier of 3d printers and/or scanners? All the ones I've seen so far are US based and I need to speak to someone more local.

    We've been buying from Robosavvy recently: RoboSavvy - Home - not sure on what scale your thinking of...

    Are you looking for a more commercialised product or the diy'ish type machines that are available?

    Thanks all so far. I want to get some to speak at the conf on 3D printing which is why I would need a UK supplier and preferable one who sells to schools.

    While we bought our Makerbot through Robosavvy, we also got some training which was provided by these guys which was very good: Black Country Atelier

    Indeed we provide schools with the Makerbot Replicator line of 3D printers, which is perfectly designed for school settings. We were selected by the Department For Education for a pilot project that provided 3D printers to schools including a year's worth of consumables (plastic in ABS and PLA) in addition to training and hot-swap replacement support.

    Last week we participated with Microsoft at the Gadget Show Live showing off how Kinect can be used as a 3D scanner and print models of scanned faces.
