We recently worked with Claxton Blinds Ltd London, designing and producing a prototype component that can be retro fitted into their blind units. We used the 3D printing bureaux service at Makernow to 3D print (or Rapid Prototype) the part in white ABS Nylon.

We used Rapid Prototyping as it’s a quick and low-cost production process, enabling us to produce an accurate, durable and close fit component for testing and proof of concept.

After testing we will revise the CAD design for injection moulding optimisation as Claxton Blinds envisage that they will be producing a large run in order to fit all their past and present commercial blind units in the UK.
