Following booming demand, new 3D services have arrived in Bristol with the opening of Hobs Studio Bristol. This one-stop shop will uniquely bring together 3D Printing, 3D Laser Scanning and Photo-Realistic Visualisations plus Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality and will serve clients in cities as far afield as Plymouth, Birmingham and Cardiff.
These 3D services are creating a real buzz in Architecture, Construction, Interior Design, Product Design and Property Marketing, where communicating complex information or design concepts is a regular challenge. 3D design files can be printed and delivered in as little as 24 hours.
A total of £300,000 is being invested in Hobs Studio Bristol, both in the premises and in new 3D equipment, including a full (6-million) colour 3D printer, plus the latest 3D Laser Scanners which cuts the scanning time in half. The new Hobs Studio will be based next door to the existing Hobs Reprographics in Queen’s Square, Bristol. This means that Hobs is doubling the space in its offices in King William House, from 2,500 to 5,000 sq ft and plans to increase its staff from 17 to 25 over the next six months.
Michelle Greeff, Managing Director of Hobs Studios comments, “Hobs Studios was launched in London and Manchester in 2014 and demand for 3D services from the South West means that Bristol is the perfect choice for the next Hobs Studio. BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an innovative new way of working for Architects and the Construction Sector and our 3D services support its adoption. More and more companies are seeing the huge potential and we’re already showing that our 3D services will be at the heart of this revolution.”
The Hobs name will be familiar to many through Hobs Reprographics, one of the leading independent printing companies in Europe. The Bristol office opened in 2006 and is well known for its first-class printing, bid and tender creation, document scanning and digital archiving services.
There is clear synergy between Hobs Reprographics and Hobs Studio, as Brad Flook, Director of Hobs Reprographics Bristol comments, ‘We already have lots of loyal clients working in Architecture, Construction, Design and Marketing throughout the South West of England. We work with them closely to present or convey their plans and ideas in the best possible light. We’re looking forward to working closely with the Hobs Studio team and offering our clients the very latest 3D solutions to enhance their projects or bids even further. I’m delighted that Hobs Bristol has been chosen for the creation of a 3D hub for the Midlands and South West.’
