London’s Makertribe is a 3D printing company composed of makers, engineers, designers, and artists who are committed to providing a wide variety of 3D printing services for numerous industries. They encourage their users to always delve into their imaginations to keep coming up with creative ideas — and apparently they follow their own advice, if the advent of their new spinoff, 3DConfetti, dedicated to signature 3D printed wedding pieces, is any indication.
Everyone knows that while saying “I do” is one of the most momentous and meaningful moments of your life, it’s a lot fun planning the event itself — and having cool novelties and mementos that everyone leaves talking about (and saving) is always a goal. Makertribe has tapped into that idea, offering brides and grooms a way to incorporate the technology of 3D printing into the festivities surrounding their nuptials. All it takes is some inspiration based around their wedding day, the help of some 3D computer design, and 3D printing services, with advisement available from 3DConfetti on any level.
While they encourage the beautiful brides (and handsome grooms — not forgotten!) about to walk down the aisle to come up with ideas that suit their needs, they do offer simple, elegant products like 3D printed personalized placeholders, boxes with 3D printed favors, menus, and wedding cake toppers.
The 3D printed placeholders, bearing the names of guests in elegant cursive script, can be placed in a variety of unique spots, free-floating, or clipped onto an item.
3D printed caketoppers are of course the showstopping novelty item, as Makertribe can help the bride and groom with 3D scanning themselves, and having miniature replicas of themselves installed on their cakes. 3DConfetti also makes 3D printed decorations in the form of bespoke finishing touches.
While they do encourage brides to come up with ideas, they can also perform more complex design work, including adding text to the 3D printed items. The idea is to show brides and grooms how they can use computer design to come up with lots of cool ideas and then have them 3D printed — Makertribe’s forte. They don’t offer complete wedding setups or designs, but are focused on helping wedding parties decide on and create unique signature items.
Be sure to visit with 3DConfetti, and also check out the latest news from Makertribe, as they’ve announced they are just announced they are expanding their services to cast in metal. You can choose your favorite precious metals such as 18 Karat Gold in yellow, white or pink, and sterling silver.
