NHS supported by CDG Customers


CDG are pleased to be able to support our 3D Printer customers with materials and printers, in these difficult times, especially those companies and organisations who are supporting the NHS with the provision of face masks and other equipment.

This is one testimonial...

I just wanted to say thank you for all the support yourselves and CDG have given us over the past couple of weeks during such difficult circumstances. Your swift response, with both the supply of materials and the visit [from your service team], has enabled us to ramp up our production of face visors to support the vital work of the NHS at this time. Our three machines are now running around the clock, and as always are increasingly proving their worth each day. We are only a small part of what is truly a national effort, but we couldn’t have done what we have without your help!

Best wishes

NHS Thank You

New 3DXTech Polypropylene and Polyethylene materials are launched. ALL 3DXTech filaments are available from CDG in the UK. Please click below to access our online shops to view or purchase these material:-


CARBONX™ PP+CF Polypropylene 3D filament

CarbonX™ CF-PP is made using a speciality formulated polypropylene co-polymer reinforced with high-modulus chopped carbon fibre. 

This filament is based on a patent-pending formulation that offers improved thermal properties and low shrinkage/warp compared to competitive PP-based compounds.  

Product Attributes:

- Does not absorb moisture

- Excellent chemical resistance

- Low density/light weight

- High strength and stiffness

- Ease of printing - suitable for use on practically any 3D printer

EVOLV3D™ OBC Polyethylene Copolymer 3D filament

Evolv3D™ OBC (Olefin Block Copolymer) from Dow is an engineering-grade material based on a novel polyethylene copolymer.

OBC is the state-of-the-art in polyethylene 3D printing and eliminates many of the problems associated with printing polypropylene-based materials. 

Product Attributes Include:

- Excellent Z-axis bonding

- Very low density (0.9 g/cm3)

- Outstanding chemical resistance 

- No water pick-up - no drying needed

- Ease of printing - low warp / curling

- Flexibility and fatigue resistance allows for printing living hinges

- Low odor - essentially none
