End to End - Product Design

 Engineering & 3D Printing Solutions

Developing innovative design & engineering solutions from concept to production. Optimised to take advantage of the benefits of 3D Printing

Colaborative Ideation

Working with you as your solutions partner every step of the way. From understanding your vision, market, requirements, and brainstorming concepts, to choosing the best materials and manufacturing process for your application

Design Development

Taking these concepts, defining requirements, then taking through the design-build-test product development cycle. Finding the optimal path for each client/project to achieve a successful, cost-effective product/part that performs, is manufacturable, and is reliable. 

Reduce, Reuse, Renew, Recycle:

Not only does 3D printing use very small amounts of energy to produce parts. All our energy comes from microgeneration and renewable sources. We also encourage clients to use naturally sourced, renewable, recycled or recyclable materials.

Computer Aided Design

CAD is one of the primary technologies used daily at Hexa³. It efficiently aids in developing an idea into reality, to optimise designs for manufacture, engineering detail and visualisation. CAD is a tool that enables; agile, iterative design development from concept through to production.


Simulation & Testing

If you have something that keeps failing, hasn't been designed to the correct requirements or is over-engineered. We can help optimise a design for manufacture, particular use cases and testing. Whether it be through FEA/CFD simulation or helping with setting up your tests in house. 

SLA Print



SLA uses a laser to cure and build seamless layers of photopolymer resin to form an object, with high precision and accuracy. This is the closest to moulded plastic components. Modern advancements in resins have enabled this technology for use in engineering  and many more applications.


Fused Deposition Modeling

With FDM, a filament of thermoplastic is heated on average to 200ºc and extruded in lines to fuse layers of plastic to create an object. Being the most affordable 3D printing method, this is ideal for prototyping components and enclosures. With many material and colour chooses, many things are possible

Vacuum Form


Plastic Thermoforming

Vacuum forming is a versatile way of creating low cost moulds that can be reused to create multiple objects. We offer small scale vac-forming sheets made with single or multiple 3D printed patterns that can be cut out also.


Prototype Turning & Milling

We also offer manual machining capabilities to support our 3D printing service. Whether it is a one off, small batches or custom components/inserts to be used in combinations with your printed parts / assemblies.

About Hexa³®

Hexa³ ® was born through a necessity. A necessity to think differently and change the way things are done. To think about what can be done rather than what cannot, to find solutions to problems. To enable, not disable. With product design and 3D printing, possibilities are endless and ideas come to reality. 
The mission at Hexa³ ® is to provide high-quality end to end designs, prototypes and parts in collaboration with the customer needs and exacting specifications. Making it easier for you to access quality, reliable solutions. To customise and validate ideas, all in a cost-effective and more environmentally sustainable way.

The Vision

Solar Panels

Hexa³ ® is a small business that aims to offer a professional, high quality and personalised experience, to all customers. Remaining optimised to not only offer personalised 1:1 service but to also reduce overheads and carbon footprint, so those savings can be passed back to the customers. 


Often companies are so focused on growth; their service, costs and products suffer as a consequence. We focus on being consistent, sustainable and reliable. 


Product Design & Additive Manufacturing are complex, but we can enable you to find new opportunities.

About James

James Bryden

An experienced Product Design Engineer with a demonstrated, almost 20-year history of working in the design industry. Taking and innovating consumer products from concept through to production.
Several years ago James was diagnosed and lives with a life-changing disability that has made him look at everything from a different perspective, challenging the way things are done and finding new ways of solving problems. He has strong professional skills in Design for Manufacture/Assembly, Product Design & Optimization, Computer-Aided-Design (CAD), Product Reliability, and 3D Printing & Prototyping
