About Us

BHiveLabs was founded by Simon Hammersley and Matthew Harvey in 2015, two research scientists with over a decade of experience in experimental physics research in which the ability to rapidly design and test solutions to problems on a tight budget is paramount.

Here at BHiveLabs we specialise in the use of 3D printing to find practical, functional solutions to problems and in the production of functional 3D printed objects. This can include individual prototypes or bespoke items, or for small runs of parts suitable for an experiential trail.

With our background we are able to discuss projects with people from engineering and scientific disciplines in their own terms, either to better understand their requirements or to detail how the advantages/limitations of a particular 3D printing technology apply to their project.

What We Do

We Enable Clients To Use 3D Printing To Create Functional Prototypes.

Consultation

Design

Prototyping

Trial

We will talk you through your idea, and how 3D printing can be used to help overcome any issues that might arise. This includes any considerations that will need to be taken into account in the design stage in order to reduce the number of iterations that will be required.

Once the idea is outlined it is time to design the parts to be printed. We can do this for you or alternatively we can train you to use 3D design packages and offer advice as the design is finalised.

Once a design is finalised, prototype production can begin. Depending on requirements the printed parts can also be hand sanded and painted to improve the surface finish.

Once a working prototype is ready we can help to produce a small run of parts for trial. For small trials all parts can be printed. However we also offer casting services for larger trials, allowing us to produce a greater number of items in a shorter amount of time than would be possible with 3D printing techniques.
