From 3D Printing to Photogrammetry
In July 2015, Envision 3D Printing launched as a small, Houston-based business with no storefront. At that time, we offered only thermoplastic 3D printing and limited design and post-processing services.
In early 2018, we relocated to a storefront in Spring, Texas. Over the last few years, we have grown substantially and added new equipment, including a second thermoplastic printer, a resin printer, a laser engraver/cutter, and a full-color (CMYK) powder bed printer in addition to some manual machines. We also expanded our design and post-processing services. We now offer complete prototyping services in addition to 3D-printing production parts.
In 2019, we purchased a state-of-the-art 3D body scanner and created a second company called Envision 3D Scanning. Offering full-body 3D scanning as well as CMYK powder-binder 3D printing of those scanned images, we are Houston's only one-stop shop for preserving precious memories in 3D selfie form.
About 3D Scanning
Our 3D full-body scanner is specifically designed to capture images of people and animals in under two seconds using 93 high-resolution cameras and eight LED projectors. Through a process called photogrammetry, the images are processed into a 3D model that can be printed on our full-color 3D printer.
What Else We Do
Envision 3D Printing is a growing service bureau offering complete design services, 2D-to-3D file conversion, reverse engineering, professional 3D printing, and post-processing services. Our 3D printing technologies include fused deposition modeling (FDM), stereolithography (SLA), and powder bed, which offers full-color printing.
