Welcome to the 3D printing arm of Catz Design Farm. We feature printers from Lulzbot, BD3D Customs, SeemeCNC and others. Because of the range of printers we can make FDM printing affordable to small businesses and hobbyists of all types. This allows us to meet the needs of prototyping and small-scale production.
Featuring highly modified Lulzbot Taz 5’s and Stock workhorse printers, SeemeCNC Delta, Hypercube, Eryone and anycubic machines.
Why Choose Catz Design Farm for your printing needs
I run 18 FDM printers here at Catz Design Farm. I can handle most materials including HTPLA, PETg, ABS, ASA, PC blend, TPU, and have experimented with PP and BASF ultrafuse. I currently do not have the capability for high temp PEI pure PC or some of the other high temp exotics. I can print carbon fiber filled materials and frequently use CF PETg by atomic for high strength parts. From partnerships with other small businesses, I can also arrange parts to be done with HP Multijet Fusion , Polyjet and SLA technologies. I also have access to a high accuracy scanner with 50 micron or better data capture and will provide fully surface wrapped geometry for further development. The scanner is in California however so items will need to be shipped for scanning. Coming in the future will be access to CNC and laser cutting processes.
My print farm can handle everything from small detailed parts on .3mm nozzle toolheads to large parts on the 475mm hypercube. I also have a Delta that can do 20″ tall by almost 12 inch diameter. The main fleet are highly modified Lulzbot Taz machines.
About me: Dorian Ferrari – Owner/Operator – Catz Design Farm. I have been working with and around 3D printing technology since the mid 90’s, The first machine that Mattel had was a SLA250 by 3D systems. Over the years the rapid prototyping arm of Mattel grew to include multiple resin machines by EnvisionTec & 3D systems, Stratasys FDM machines, Stratasys (now owned) Objet and Objet Connex material blending polyjet’s. and other technologies that have come and gone. When I left Mattel in 2015, I created my own business doing primarily product development and knew I needed some type of printing technology for supporting prototyping. Enter desktop FDM. While not offering the industrial capacity of stratasys FDM, or the detail of the SLA or Polyjet machines that Mattel had, they were an affordable means of doing prototyping. That grew to become part of the business doing small-scale manufacturing for several clients, as well as continuing the prototyping work necessary to develop product for clients.
I have been in 3D modeling and Product Development since 1990. Working at companies such as Beckman Instruments, Mattel, and Boeing, I have a keen understanding of materials and processes. Working with additive manufacturing technologies such as SLS, SLA, DLP, FDM, Polyjet, and the more recent HP MJF, I can guide customers to the best solution to their needs.
