About Us


PrintPool was created in 2020 in Oxford, when we noticed that engineers, makers and designers who couldn’t, or didn’t want to invest in their own 3D-Printers had very few options other than conventional AM service bureaus, which were often extremely expensive and inflexible.

Our Values

PrintPool offers services that give customers more predictability in their expenditure and cash-flow without limiting their choice in processes or materials for 3D printed parts. We aim to provide the quality and variety of a large bureau service, but without the cost, and the speed and flexibility of inhouse printing, without the inconvenience.

3D printing/additive manufacturing is an excellent way to reduce waste when prototyping, as you only use the materials you need, as compared to conventional subtractive manufacturing processes. To support this environmental belief further, we work with Ecologi to plant trees around the world, offsetting the carbon impact of all our staff, and orders.
